Fishing Team


Curious about what it takes to be on the team?



Jenny Anderson


Jenny Anderson is an outdoor and travel creative based in the Twin Cities. She comes with a hodgepodge of titles including blogger, author, storyteller, videographer/photographer... but ultimately, her passion is to create to inspire women, families and people of all backgrounds, abilities and skill levels to get outside.

As someone who didn't grow up doing anything "outdoorsy," she believes it's never too late to find your passion and get on the water.

Jenny's go-to fish species include lake trout, walleye, smallmouth, crappie and bluegill; she loves them all! As for how she got into fishing, she used to cover the outdoor beat as a news reporter in western Wisconsin. That's also where she met her husband who took her ice fishing on their third date. She pulled up a 28-inch walleye on a tip-up and you could say she was instantly "hooked!" As a wife and mama of two toddlers, fishing has become the perfect outdoor activity for her family. It's an accessible sport – one that can be enjoyed from the shore, a dock, a canoe/kayak or boat.

Jenny is looking forward to another open water season with DSG, an organization that promotes women in the fishing industry while creating gear that serves a purpose. She is all for style meets comfort meets function. A few of her favorite products for this season include the Reversible Midi Top, 3-in-1 Cargo Pants and the Reversible Bucket Hat. Happy fishing!

Nicole Stone


My name is Nicole Stone and I live in Northern Minnesota with my husband and 7 month old daughter. I grew up on a small family farm where the outdoors was literally our an entire life. I started fishing the local river around the age of 6 and that passion has kept on growing into adulthood. I went to school for Atmospheric Science and after a few years in the field decided I wanted to transition back to the outdoors, where I currently make a living as a fishing influencer and working on tech.

I currently drive a Polar Kraft Kodiak 200, and I love taking it throughout northern Minnesota and Manitoba targeting trophy walleye and panfish.

My favorite part of DSG is that they offer such a diverse set of gear, they have me covered when it's 90 degrees AND when it's windy, cool and rainy. Best of all I can be layered for the days on the water when I have to prepared for all of those things. I'm typically outfitted in the Journey suit or Malea Jacket in the morning, then I layer down to the Victoria (or razorback) and boat leggings midday, with my Harlow rain suit (and even ice suit) always packed in my boat and ready to go.

 Sarah Kozlowski20230521-003417000-ios-sarah-kozlowski.jpg

Sarah Kozlowski has been a member of the DSG Fish Team since 2020 and this year was selected as Team Lead. She is from Hayward, Wisconsin where she was raised by a family very passionate about the outdoors. She grew up on a lake fishing from her family's dock for panfish and largemouth bass. Her mother, who unfortunately passed in 2017, taught her much of what she knows and started her skill bank, the importance of conservation and how to be a provider.

After Sarah earned her Bachelor's Degrees in Criminal Justice and Psychology from St. Cloud State University, she moved home shortly after, and now works for Indian Health Services. Sarah spends most of her time fishing with her husband, Jay. She also enjoys hunting, foraging, traveling, gardening, kayaking or spending time with her two dogs, Rudy and Daisy.

Sarah's favorite fish to target during the open water season is smallmouth bass. She says there is nothing like the fight smallies put up, especially on top water. When the smallmouth aren't biting, you can usually find her and her husband chasing walleyes.

Susie Busta


Susie is a born and raised Minnesotan. She, her husband and son reside in Northern Minnesota and spend most of their free time doing some type of outdoor activity.
Fishing has been a passion of Susie’s since she was young, specifically open water fishing. Her Mom was an avid fisher-woman and she recalls watching her bring home fish, playing with her tackle box and fishing pole. Ice fishing came later in life, but has grown into just as much of an obsession as open water fishing. “I am always learning and wanting to try something new, it drives me.”
Her and her husband love to take their son out fishing with them, and they have done so since he was around seven months old. You can often find them on ice or in the boat trying to reel in the big one!
Susie hopes to inspire other new mothers who are unsure about taking their kids fishing and women who have never ice fished before. “You are never too late to learn and you are more capable than you think. Don’t let your mind restrict you to what you “think” you can do.”

 Devon Mullenbach


Devon Mullenbach was born and raised in southern Minnesota. She currently resides in north central Iowa with her boyfriend, Derrick, and their two dogs. Ever since she can remember, she’s been in the outdoors with her father, grandfather and step-father where they fished and mostly deer hunted. In high school, her love for fishing and bird hunting flourished.

Devon has been on the team since the original Arctic Appeal ice suit made its debut in 2019. She has a strong passion for the outdoors. Bird hunting is her ultimate favorite-from ducks, geese, doves, pheasants and turkeys. Fishing comes in at a strong second. She’s a multi-species angler that loves to fish all year round. Crappies are at the top of her list but she also loves walleyes, catfish, bluegills and trout on the fly rod. Devon doesn’t limit her time to only those species. Muskies, bass, lake trout, sturgeon…the list goes on! If it swims, she wants to target it!

You can find Devon in the outdoors any time of the year. Outside of fishing and hunting, she loves to camp, hike, kayak, and forage.

Nicole King


From northwestern Wisconsin, Nicole is a registered nurse with a strong passion for fishing. That love for fishing started at a young age thanks to her dad. She grew up on a small creek, where he taught Nicole how to target species that included smallmouth bass, walleye, and pike. These days, she especially enjoys exploring and fishing from a fishing kayak, but you can find her on the water year-round chasing anything she can! Above all, her favorite species to target are muskies. She says, "I think it's the name, 'the fish of 10,000 casts', and the amount of time that goes into chasing muskies that makes it much more rewarding when one finally hits the net.

Ricca Retzloff


Ricca is from western Wisconsin. She enjoys the outdoor lifestyle and loves to hunt and fish. She has been able to represent DSG for the last 4 years and is excited to continue to represent the brand.
Her passion for the outdoors started at an early age. Ricca grew up spending my weekends out on the ice fishing with the family. Growing up on a dairy farm in the winter, her dad had a little down time to enjoy what he loved and brought the family along on the ice.
As Ricca gets older my passion for fishing only increases year by year. She now enjoys ice fishing, open water, trout fishing, and kayak fishing. She would say she is a multi-species angler and that she enjoy fishing with others and alone. There’s something about going out on the water by yourself and having a successful day, that is so rewarding. It is also enjoyable to go with friends and seeing their success that is just as rewarding if not more.
Ricca's goal is to get out with more women and kids and get them into fishing. She aims to represent women in the fishing world in a positive and professional way; showing what she enjoys and love about the sport and hopefully passing it on.
She loves being apart of DSG team and what they stand for and support. Being an all women’s brand and being right here in my home state of Wisconsin is something to be proud of!
Her favorite summer go to gear is the Chloe hooded sun shirt, with the midi layered underneath, with the boat leggings. Talk about comfort and sun protection all in one!

Brianne is a multi species angler, but her favorite species to target are Brown Trout and Blue Gill. She loves the places and adventures that fishing takes her and being able to experience the great outdoors is something she deeply cherishes.

When she's not fishing, you can find her camping with her husband and their dog Nova. She's expecting in October 2023 and looks forward to sharing her love for fishing and the outdoors with her child.

Her favorite fishing memory is catching crappies in her front yard after moving into her house in 2020. Little did she know she would have one of her favorite fish in her front yard, when she moved in.

Dori is excited to be welcomed back to the team as pro staff for a second year! She thinks representing women being authentic in the outdoor industry is huge. She is happy to play a part in that vital role for the younger generation.

Whether it's in a boat with her dad, alone in a kayak or on the ice, as long as she is fishing she is happy! The main species she fishes for are Pike, Walleye, Bass, Musky, Perch and Catfish. She doesn't have a favorite because she likes to change up what she targets, but the one that gives her the biggest adrenaline rush is the Northern Pike. She finds that fishing is a true passion that takes you through a variety of emotions, takes you on great adventures and allows you to develop great friendships.

Jessica Hill


Jessica Hill is an avid saltwater angler in Corpus Christi, Texas. She first started fishing after moving there with her husband in 2016 and has never looked back! Jessica grew up doing ballet and wearing tutus, so learning how to fish was a completely new experience for her! As she’s grown as an angler, she’s found joy and a new confidence in herself that she hopes to help other women find as they, too, explore more of the outdoors. She can usually be found on a boat in the flats of the Laguna Madre seeking speckled trout and red drum.

Jessica is very excited to be a part of the DSGFish Pro Team this year! She loves that they offer gear for women that actually fits and has so many practical features (POCKETS!). She hopes that other women see her success as an angler and think, “If she can do it, then so can I!” Her DSG favorites are the Boat Leggings and Sun Shirts; they’re ultra lightweight and UPF 50+, so they’re ideal for sun and heat protection on the Gulf!

Taylor Cunningham


Taylor is an Orthopedic Physician Assistant located in Eau Claire, WI and she loves everything outdoors and adventure related. Her love for fishing began when she went to Canada with her family at a very young age, and caught a northern pike on her own (reeled it in and even held it). She thought it was the biggest fish in the world, and has been chasing that feeling ever since.

Taylor has been a part of the DSG Team for two ice seasons, and this will be her third open water season. She recently began participating in more competitive bass tournaments, and will begin fishing kayak tournaments this year. Her favorite species to target are inland trout, early spring panfish, and all things smallmouth bass.

Taylor began wearing DSG Outerwear after a really terrible sunburn one spring, and thought it was time to look into some UPF gear. She found one shirt at her local Scheels and was hooked ever since - pun intended. Her favorite gear from this open water season includes the Reversible Midi Top, the Charli UPF Sunshirt, and the High-Waisted UPF Boat Leggings. The perfect, complete outfit to spend a day comfortable on the water, without the worry of getting too much sun.

I look forward to working with DSG Outerwear for another season, and promoting women in the outdoors. This company strives to make comfortable, functional, and fashionable outerwear for the active outdoorswoman, with a team of strong, independent females leading the way. Tight Lines!

Haley, also known as HDEfarmpondjunkie, is a kayak bass angler. Haley grew up in the great state of Missouri running trot lines with her grandfather.

It started with back lake adventures in the canoe in and within the same year she picked up a bait cast and caught her first musky. After that it didn't take long for the passion to take over. Chelsea has always loved the outdoors but had only fished a handful of times prior to 2015. Chelsea is a multi species angler but dedicates a majority of her open water season to musky fishing. When she isn't fishing you will find her hiking in the woods or out in her kayak, Chelsea lives for the outdoors.

Katelyn Beaver


Katelyn Beaver lives in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan along the waters of Little Bay De Noc. Katelyn's Dad and Papa started to take her fishing as soon as her mom would allow it. Some of Katelyn's earliest memories are showing off their catches at the boat launch. Fish fry's were her go to for birthday dinners. Life got busy as Katelyn grew older, but she started to hit the water again during the Covid-19 pandemic. During this time she also started to make fishing lures. Now, this hobby has become a business called Beavers Lures!

Katelyn's favorite species to target is Phat Walleye through the ice. Little Bay has prime spawning grounds for trophy Walleye. Katelyn says, "There's just something about them once they hit that 30" mark." One thing Katelyn will be trying this spring is Walleye spearing. Spearfishing game fish just recently became legal in the Great Lakes! She considers herself to be a bit of an adrenaline junky. You can follow Katelyn's adventures on Instagram and Facebook!

It can be intimidating trying something new, especially in the outdoors. Katelyn hopes that by sharing her passion it will inspire other women to get outside and find something they love. She believes that the harder something is, the more rewarding it is. Katelyn thinks that's why she likes fishing and hunting so much.

DSG has been an amazing company to promote. Finally a company that specializes in women's outdoor gear. If you enjoy winter activities you need the 1200g insulated boots! Another one of Katelyn's favorites is the Victoria Snap-Up shirt. Its breathable, has UPF 50+ protection, and is super cute!

Amy Diekevers


Amy Diekevers was born and raised in the Great Lakes State and lives in Byron Center MI. She is a nationwide commercial building permit expeditor that secures building permits for tenant build outs & has been doing that for nearly 20 years.

Growing up, Amy didn’t fish much. It wasn't until she met her husband Greg, who was already an avid fisherman, that fishing became a big part of her life. Now you will almost always find the two of them fishing together during their free time.

Her favorite fish to target is walleye. She jigs the Detroit River in April and fishes Saginaw Bay from early May into late fall/early winter. She also does some salmon fishing on Lake Michigan and enjoys pan fishing on local inland lakes.

When Amy isn’t fishing you will likely find her and Greg spending time with their 6 married/adult kids and 7 grandkids! However, much of their family time together is revolved around fishing. Whether it’s on their boat, casting from shore or just hanging out at the campground. Fun Fact! The first gift each grandchild receives from grandma and grandpa when they’re just a day or two old, is a brand new fishing pole! Now that’s starting them young! Family, fishing and making memories.

Amy’s goals as a female angler are to continue to learn and grow in the sport. To lift up and encourage other female anglers and most importantly to always have fun!

Megan Dornbusch


Megan Dornbusch is an avid outdoor enthusiast from eastern North Dakota. She spends a lot of her free time fishing the Minnesota central lakes area or venturing up to Lake of the Woods or Devils Lake with her husband, toddler, and German Wirehaired pointer. Walleye, crappies, and trophy pike are at the top of her list of favorite species to target.

Megan grew up in central Minnesota and has been fishing as long as she can remember. Her passion for it was especially renewed when she met her husband Alex in 2014 who got her more involved in the sport than she had been as a kid. Since then, her independence as an angler has grown and so has her confidence.

On the weekends, you can find her and her husband taking their toddler out on the water, the ice, or into the field on a hunting adventure which they’ve been doing since he was just two months old. It doesn’t come without compromise and slowing things down or scaling back the adventures, but Megan hopes to inspire other mothers by sharing what is possible while making memories and enjoying the great outdoors with her family.

Kelsey Bell


Kelsey is a bird specialist with a fish infatuation! Meaning, in her professional life (and often spare time), she is watching and researching birds, but the rest of the time you’ll find her by the water fishing. Fishing did not become a real passion for Kelsey until her adult years, but for her, it’s the constant learning and challenge that draws her to back to the water every time. Kelsey considers herself a multi-species angler and loves the challenge of trying new target species. Although Kelsey enjoys all types of fishing, she is definitely partial to fly fishing. One of Kelsey’s favourite fish to target is channel catfish, but with a twist, because she does it all on the fly.

Kelsey grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada), but met a boy from Wisconsin and ended up marrying him in 2021. She now splits her time between Wisconsin and Manitoba while the Visa applications are getting sorted. She enjoys fishing both sides of the border and learning the different styles and techniques that come with each location.

Kelsey loves to connect with other anglers and stays active with different organizations, including Manitoba Fly Fisher’s Association and Manitoba Wildlife Federation, to help promote women as anglers in her community. Kelsey hopes that by sharing her outdoor experiences she can encourage and empower other women to get out there!

Melissa Lindsay

Melissa Lindsay was born and raised in Nova Scotia, but currently resides in Manitoba. She spends her free time outdoors; exploring, hunting and of course fishing. All with her sidekick and adventure buddy, her Irish Setter – Little Ann.

When people ask her what her favorite species to target is, she has a tough time answering. She calls herself a multi species angler who really loves variety, getting out of her comfort zone, implementing different techniques, and exploring her beautiful province chasing a hot bite. You can find her on the ice, in the boat or kayak or on the riverbank. She loves it all and there’s always something in season so there is never a break from fishing. She also enjoys volunteering and helping teach and guide new anglers to become more confident while learning to fish.

Melissa has been a member of the DSG fish team since the beginning and what she loves most about the brand is the multitude of options available to women. DSG offers gear for every season and situation in a wide range of sizes. As a plus size woman with not a lot of options available on the market for her, this is invaluable. Being outfitted in proper gear keeps her comfortable and able to fish harder and longer which she says has been invaluable.

Hannah Hayes


Hannah is a full time dog trainer in Turtle Lake, North Dakota. When she’s not on her boat fishing the great waters of central North Dakota, you can find her wandering the prairie behind her spaniels and vizslas in pursuit of upland game birds. Hannah’s love for fishing was instilled at a young age by her father in small town Indiana. She grew up with a small pond in her backyard and fished for largemouth bass, crappie, and bluegill either from the shore or as co-captain on her dad’s little john boat named the “Stump Jumper.”

When Hannah moved to North Dakota, she had her dad’s 29-year-old Stump Jumper in tow and started her journey to independence on the water. She fished for walleye, pike, smallmouth bass, and perch for two years until she realized she needed more boat under her in order to get the most out of the North Dakota open water fishing. This year, she purchased her first boat; a ‘97 Lund Angler named the “Red Slider” and has brought many fish to boat already; some even personal bests!

Hannah’s favorite species to target is walleye. Figuring out what lure they’re biting, what color, live bait or plastic, what depth, etc. is a puzzle she never grows tired of solving. Not to mention they are good eating and one of her favorite things to do with the filets is gift them to her friends, family, and neighbors.

The ladies that are a part of DSG Outdoors ProStaff team have been an inspiration to Hannah for years. Those girls are some of the most talented, driven, kind, and motivated anglers she knows. Hannah is excited to be a part of the team and has no trouble putting her DSG gear to heavy use!
