For Beth Synowiec, catching trophy fish doesn’t include dumb luck.

Synowiec had a banner year in 2010, earning her first Expert Angler award from the Virginia Saltwater Fishing Tournament. The Norfolk Anglers Club also named her Angler of the Year.

“I don’t feel like I’m blind-lucking any of this,” said Synowiec, 39, of Virginia Beach. “It’s all a matter of being prepared.”

In that case, Synowiec probably should teach angling preparedness courses.

In 2010 she registered 12 citations for eight species – her best year. She and husband Kevin shot two television shows with Kevin Baugh that will air this summer on the Outdoors Channel. While she works in her husband’s construction business, she landed a side job as an advertising representative for the Chesapeake Angler magazine.
