Misty Wells, a competitive angler and outdoors events marketer known as the “Outdoor Darlin,” was named tournament director of the Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina in Alice Town, Bimini, in the Bahamas.

A Florida native, Wells is a lifelong angler and has been a member of a women’s team that has competed in numerous Florida tournaments, including Key West Marlin, Key West Kingfish, King of the Beach, Islamorada Sea Hunter Owners and Suncoast Kingfish Classic and the Bill Curry Ford Ladies Tournament.

A pro staff angler, Wells is also the first woman selected to fish in the Offshore Fishing League, which is launching its debut on NBC Sports in the fall of 2016. The OFL is the world’s first professional saltwater sportfishing league. It has 30 teams composed of captains, anglers and deckhands.

“We are very pleased to have someone of Misty’s caliber to serve as tournament director for our resort,” Horizon Hotel Group president James Gould said in a statement. ”She also brings a wealth of experience in outdoors sport event planning and marketing, having worked with Fortune 500 companies, sports franchises, as well as many national celebrities.”

First up for Wells is the Wahoo Smackdown VII, scheduled for Nov. 12-14. She will engage sponsors and coordinate angler registration and tournament rules.
