Knowledgeable, personable Kirk gives out practical and hands-on information for the amateur fisherperson. Be sure to dress warmly, at least at this time of year. Prepare to walk for the 2+ hours.

Fantastic time out at the marina! Kirk's passion for foraging and aquatic life is compelling. Took a friend for her birthday present, we both learned a lot and the 2 plus hours on the tour seemed like 30 minutes because it all interesting.

Kirk is a SF treasure. His knowledge of fish and the fisherman in our corner of the Bay is delightful to hear and even better to see close up and hands on. It was a minor miracle but he produced live specimens right out of the Bay at every stop! I...continued

The time just flew by! We had a great time looking closely at the coastal tide waters, catching crabs and even an eel. (All were thrown back, of course). Great info if you are thinking of anything to do with starting to fish in any way.

This event with Kirk was great, because he is very knowledgeable, sort of a self-made expert on everything about local fishing, history, and biology. We loved the hands-on net casting and helping with the crab hauling. I would do this again, or...continued

Kirk is a well-informed, enthusiastic and entertaining guide, Catching Dungeness crab (which he threw back) with what seemed like very little effort inspired us to give it a try when crab season opens again. It was also fun to watch Kirk...continued
