Fishing Team


Curious about what it takes to be on the team?





 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.

Brianne Leys


Brianne grew up on a small acreage in Manitoba, Canada. She grew up loving the outdoors, but didn’t start fishing until she was an adult. She started open water fishing and when Ice season hit, not being able to fish for five months seemed impossible, and her fishing addiction began.

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.

 Brittany Bassett


Brittany is from a small town in Southern California called Menifee. She is an all around angler who loves to target largemouth bass, striped bass, smallmouth, crappie and catfish. She doesn't just keep it fresh, she also loves to get salty and go chase after bluefin tuna and yellowtail. But out of all those largemouth will always have her heart. Fishing doesn't run in her family but somehow, family trips to the river and lakes growing up always pushed her curiosity to catch fish and over the years it got stronger and became a passion.

Dori Sell


Kind of like the explorer…kind of like the fish…. Dori enjoys all things outdoors! Dori currently resides in Omro, WI after living in a camper for 5 years, while her husband traveled for work.  Dori has been involved in the outdoors for as long as she can remember. Growing up, her summers were spent walleye or pan fishing on the boat with the whole family.  She will never pass on a good panfish bite or a snack in the boat.

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.

Karine Belanger


Karine Belanger is from Vaudreuil (Quebec, Canada). She has been fishing since 2015 and fishes all year round! 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. But what she appreciate the most is the time she gets to spend fishing with her dad.

Each product is designed with quality, genius, but above all designed for each of us." Her favorites from DSG are the long-sleeve, breathable UPF shirts.
