ALL women who are looking to find their niche in the fishing industry should listen to what Capt Deb has to say about how she found hers! An enlightening and fun conversation with a lady angler I greatly admire!

 

 

CAPT-DEB'S BIO

 

Deb started fishing in the Florida Keys at the young age of 5 with her parents during summer vacations until she graduated from college. She always had the dream of being a fishing guide in the keys. She fished freshwater at the lakes near her home in Catfish, NC and fished saltwater when she could but after 15 years as a nurse in North Carolina, one day she left to follow her dream of fishing and moved boldly to the Keys on her hopes and dreams of fishing full-time. Determined to follow her dreams, she started slinging bait to feed the tarpon at Robbies in Islamorada and fending off pelicans for a few weeks, then landed a spot in the famous Bud N Mary's Marina, where her first job was towing houseboats from Key Largo, then was offered a full time position in the Tackle Shop where she began to study the history of sportfishing and dive deep in the history of Islamorada fishing. She started fishing with legendary fly fishing guide and mentor, Richard Stanzcyk, who showed her the true meaning of sportfishing for fish that roam the flats, mostly bonefish. Bud N Marys is more than just a marina it is a school, where people that show the real true dedication and passion for the sport go to learn from the best, it's called Bud N Mary's University! Deb was "enrolled" in BnMU for three years and earned her captain's license in Nov 2019. Capt Deb started her own charter business, Blue Water Girl Charters out of the Upper Keys in June 2020. You can find Capt Deb on the flats hunting or in the backcountry or even sight-fishing sailfish on the reef. Capt Deb has a technical flats skiff 16' Chaos Boatwork Bonefish and also runs a 32' Gamefisherman Sportfish named "Gypsy Girl"

A Tuna Fishing Duo , Saving Lives!

March 17, 2020

Thanks to Lori Heath and Robert Tressler for being a guest on RodnReelGirls Podcast today! This was an exceptional podcast and quite an honor for me! I have followed Lori on social media for quite some time as she has done the same for me!

Both her and Robert spend quite a bit of time reeling in some pretty big tuna near their California home! They are both avid anglers.

Lori Heath is an inspiration to me as we all know fishing for tuna is no easy task. I certainly look forward to spending a day or so with Lori in her home state of California reeling in a bucket list fish, as well as hosting her and Robert on a fishing trip in his native home for specks and reds.

Fishing light tackle for Lori will be a breeze.

The real exception to this podcast is the fact Robert Tressler is Vice President of the San Diego Blood Bank and they are in dire need of blood donations! Please listen to the podcast and understand how fishing is a universal language and bonds so many of us together in a time of need! Whether you are in California or Louisiana, your local blood bank needs your help!

Click on the link below and see how safe it is to donate blood and how desperately your help is needed!

Since Robert is a native of Louisiana  we have a plan in the works to get Lori down South to fish with some light tackle once we persevere through this crisis!

Phyllis Spent most her child hood outside camping, fishing, and gardening-she continues to enjoy these activities, while expanding to new adventures in the outdoors. Phyllis become a CNA at age 18, after caring for her sick grandmother she wanted to go into a field to help others. Phyllis Homeschooled her daughter, Heaven, for 2 years introducing her to teaching and connecting her to community programs. Phyllis has participated in Relay for life with her daughter since 2010, in honor of her grandmother. Her experience in the Relay put her on a course to further help others, by establishing the Liberty Tax/Relay for life donation promotion in 2012. This provided taxpayers a means to support their favorite Relay team. Phyllis began hunting in 2017 with her fiancé. She soon noticed a need for women to have a safe place to post their outdoor adventures and connect with other woman sharing their passion. She Created a facebook group “Women of the Outdoors”, which has inspired many to create their own outdoor adventure, encouraged them to share without judgment, and enabled woman less experienced ask questions in a comfortable environment. The group of women’s struggles as well as her own, inspired Phyllis to start up a nonprofit organization to empower women and help them to prosper in the outdoors. She strives to educate women and youth about safe outdoor recreation as well as the importance of caring for our environment. Phyllis looks to motivate women & youth to become active outdoors, which in turn will enable them to become successful in other areas of their life.

Women of the Outdoors, which is based out of Massachusetts and has roots nationwide- is a non-profit organization that motivates, educates and empowers women and young adults in leadership, responsibility, and compassion for others through the value of outdoor recreation. With the emergence of generations born with electronics and technology in hand, many women and children are deprived of knowing what engagement in outdoor activities can do for them.

Women of the Outdoors hosts motivational seminars, charitable events, educational programs and assists in providing equipment to those involved in our events who may be financially struggling. Women of the Outdoors feels strongly that everyone can benefit from the experiences and knowledge obtained through outdoor adventures and excursions, and strives to furnish the opportunities for everyone to do so, regardless of their economic capability.

We cover a variety of outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, survival skills, archery, and outdoor crafts. Events will vary by state, due to presence and need of said activity.
