A Chicago area native, Debbie Hanson spent childhood summers “Up North” fishing with her grandfather for perch and muskie on the lakes of Upper Michigan. A passion for the outdoors led her to the year-round warm temps and sunny skies of Southwest Florida where the Gulf waters proved the perfect place to refine her saltwater angling techniques.
Debbie has fished competitively for the past eight years through participation in the 2003 Islamorada Women’s Sailfish Tournament, the 2004 Professional Tarpon Tournament Series, the 2010 Women’s Professional Tarpon Tournament Series, the 2012 Women’s Professional Tarpon Tournament Series, the 2012 Chix-N-Stix Ladies Fishing Tournament, the 2013 LCEC United Way Inshore Fishing Tournament.
When not on the water or planning her next fishing adventure, Debbie enjoys reading, blogging, spin class and spending time with friends. She has written numerous articles on women and fishing for online and print publications such as the Visit Florida Official Florida Vacation Guide, Times of the Islands Magazine, and the Fort Myers Beach Bulletin.
