Very informative class -- Kirk gives you practical tips on seasons, types of available fish, and more. Now I know what to look out for and when to catch my own Dungeness crab, clams and even own bait!

Despite it being a cold, rainy afternoon, we had a great time! Kirk is engaging, full of knowledge and fun tidbits and stories. The time flew by, and we learned about crab fishing, hawaiian net throwing, and poke poling for eels. Everything...continued

Fantastic tour! My husband hates seafood, but after attending this class, he is keen for some crabbing and getting Kirk's fantastically fresh seafood once a week!

Great value, would recommend it only to people with strong interest in fishing. Needs to be more kinetic, more hands-on, and more visual. Kirk was overall an excellent guide and entertainer.

It was great to learn how to catch crabs, monkeyface eels and small fish such as herring, sardines and anchovies. I'm already getting myself ready to fish on my own - and catch monkeyface eels!

It was raining cats and dogs, so I called Kirk to see if we could reschedule. He refused to do so. I understand that he is trying to make a living, but felt that he should have a more flexible policy regarding rainy days, since there aren't that...continued

Kirk is extremely informative and it was great to discover what you can dig/fish up just in the Marina alone.

PLenty of parking, at the lighthouse. Don't need the boots. Very windy, layer your clothing. He is long on explanations, too much technical. Not enough visual. I was bored and left early. He is an expert on fishing and is happy to let you...continued
