Dee's passion for fishing started over 40 years ago while growing up in the Midwest fishing fresh waters of Canada, Michigan and Wisconsin for walleye, northern pike, musky, and bass in her canoe. After moving to Melbourne Beach Florida and as her knowledge of the personalities and habitats of the different salt water species grew, she decided to buy a kayak to get up close and personal with the fish. She began sharing her expertise and abilities with others. That’s when Reel Kayak Fishing Charters started. Dee began guiding full time from the Mosquito Lagoon down to Ft. Pierce. Her favorite species to target are Snook, Redfish, “Gator” sized Speckled Sea Trout and Flounder using light spinning tackle with live and artificial baits. “My passion for fishing and teaching others brings me joy and pleasure. There is nothing more thrilling than watching someone sight cast to a tailing redfish, hooking up and being taken on a “sleigh ride”. She is a Native Watercraft Endorsed Guide and is on the Pro Staff for Bull Bay Rods, Astral Designs, Bending Branches paddles, 12 Fathom Lures, Edje Joe Jigs, Tactical Anglers fishing accessories, Pro-Cure Bait scents, Railblaza and RedZone Apparel.
