    EP. 104 On the Water with Captain Debbie Hanson: Fishing Babcock Ranch- the First Solar-Powered Town in the U.S.

    EP. 104 On the Water with Captain Debbie Hanson: Fishing Babcock Ranch- the First Solar-Powered Town in the U.S.

    As we were driving to the address where we were going to be meeting our fishing guide for the morning, Captain Debbie Hanson, I immediately felt something was odd. "We" being my wife Dana and our two dogs Sophie & Squirty. (Debbie was kind enough to allow them to tag along after I explained the dogs love being on the boat but have absolutely no interest in jumping in. This was important as on occasion a gator might be sighted in the area.)

    Having never been where we were headed before I couldn't believe how big Punta Gorda, FL is. We were planning on meeting some old friends of Dana's near Fisherman's Village in Punta Gorda after our fishing outing and assumed it was going to be close. Turns out it was over a 30-minute drive away!

    EP. 18 Female Anglers Making Waves with Takemefishing.org

    In this episode of The Woman Angler & Adventurer podcast, I had the pleasure speaking with Rachel Piacenza, Director of Marketing for the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF). Rachel grew up in the midwest and developed a passion for fishing from a very young age. She loved it so much that she set out to tie in fishing with her professional pursuits. After working for a time for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, she uprooted to Alexandra, VA to join RBFF to see how she could be involved in that organization which promotes fishing on a national level. She's been with the foundation for about 8 years now.

    We spoke about TakeMeFishing.Org's newest initiative called "Making Waves" that is all about getting more women into the sport. It just launched on Mother's Day of this year, and as been making a splash on social media. We talk about some of the challenges, why this initiative is so important, and Rachel shares some promising stats as well. The mission has just begun.
