About Dee

Welcome to “The Big Lure” website

“The Sunshine State,” Florida, has been my home for the past 30 years. I have two beautiful grown children and am the middle child of three, born in New Jersey, and we all currently reside in Lee county.

Florida a great destination where many folks like to vacation and/or come to retire for the rest of their years. There are many gorgeous locations to visit such as Orlando, Palm Springs, and Sanibel Island. Here you can find many sunny places to go fishing and that you’re sure to find your perfect “honey hole.”

Florida’s best known for its beaches and theme parks, including, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and Disney World. In my opinion, Saint Augustine is a beautiful place to visit. If you visit ST. Augustine, you must go to Ghosts & Gravestones tour that starts at dusk, it takes you by many of the scariest and most sacred sites including the Huguenot Cemetery that have been known to have apparitions present.

Why this website?

Fishing is my favorite sport and I wanted to educate myself more about it and the types of gear to use. Through researching information about rods, reels, and types of bait, I decided that I would like to share my findings to help others who might feel a little overwhelmed. “There is a lot!” I am by no means an expert in this field, but I do have of passion for fishing.

I have compiled hours of research to learn about the different rods and reels and how they are to be used, where the best work, and which one would be better suited for which locations to fish at.

Whether you are an amateur or an expert in fishing, any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. As a matter of fact, I encourage you to share your incites and ideas or suggestions with me.


My Goal with This Site

There are lots of fishing rods & reels and many different types of gear to choose from. The purpose of this site is to inform you of the different types available and what applications they work best in so that you can make a well-educated decision on what gear you’ll need for your next/first fishing adventure.

My goal is to present you with an easy to understand resource about the sport of fishing and help you make informed decisions before making a purchase of any rod and reel like I once did.

Please, if you have any comments, suggestions, or corrections I need to be aware of, please let me know. I love constructive criticism.

All the best,
