    The Woman Angler & Adventurer — Fishing Guide

    EP. 271 Supporting Guides on and off the Water With Mollie Simpkins

    EP. 271 Supporting Guides on and off the Water With Mollie Simpkins
    If you are a guide, have a friend who guides, or enjoy hiring guides, this is a must-listen episode! This week you get to me, the lady behind two essential tools to help support anyone who guides, Mollie Simpkins.

    There is little support, as most guides are considered independent contractors. While the lifestyle may sound like a dream job to many, there are a lot of challenges, including long days in the elements, dealing with different personalities, pressure to put clients on fish, and much more.

    EP. 240 Exploring the Space Coast with Dee Kaminski

    EP. 240 Exploring the Space Coast with Dee Kaminski

    If you've ever heard of Mosquito Lagoon or the Indian River, you've likely heard some stories of pretty epic fishing experiences. This week I am chatting with a kayak fishing guide on Florida's Space Coast, meet Dee Kaminski!

    Dee originally hails from the Chicagoland area and grew up fishing in quite different waters than where she finds herself now. Her family used to make trips up to Canada where they would target walleye, northern pike, musky, and bass.

    EP. 237 Lake Guntersville, the Bass Fishing Mecca with Legendary Captain Betty Stahl

    EP. 237 Lake Guntersville, the Bass Fishing Mecca with Legendary Captain Betty Stahl
    Imagine fishing one of the most pressured, clearest, grass-covered lakes in the country during one of the biggest pro bass tournaments for the 1st time ever. Well, that was me this past week. It indeed proved to be a major challenge and, not that I need it, but a humbling experience! However, I was blessed to get the opportunity to sit down with an amazing lady out on Lake Guntersville, Captain Betty Stahl, and that made any struggles I may have had on the fishing side more than worthwhile. I am excited to share it with you on this week's episode!

    EP. 207 From Florida to Alaska to the Bahamas, Southeast Asia, Guam, and Back- Captain Gabrielle Barnes Is No Stranger to Adventure!

    EP. 207 From Florida to Alaska to the Bahamas, Southeast Asia, Guam, and Back- Captain Gabrielle Barnes Is No Stranger to Adventure!
    I absolutely love when I get the opportunity to do on-location interviews and this one is right up there with one of my favorites! I had an impromptu opportunity to take a week trip down to Perdido Key with some good friends, so of course, I jumped on it. While down there, I thought, you know, this is an area of Florida I've not been to before. There's got to be some amazing lady anglers in the area that I could meet up with and feature on the show. So, I reached out to my good friend Captain Debbie Hanson to see if she has any ideas and she pointed me in the direction of this week's guest, Captain Gabrielle Barnes!
