How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
This tour was excellent! It was more of a lecture and demonstration than a 'tour' but it was very educational, interesting, and fun. Kirk's passion for the Bay Area and his respect for all of the tasty creatures around us was contagious. This is a great intro to the fishing available in the Bay Area. You aren't going to be fishing during this tour - but if you've had any interest, afterward you are going to be mentally making your shopping list. My boyfriend and I are definitely going to pick up the tools we need to try our hand at crab! This tour makes fishing accessible to people of all levels of experience (see: reference to me crab fishing!). Being a total novice, that is something I really appreciated. Kirk created a very comfortable environment where people could ask plenty of questions and he was gracious answering everything (even providing a demo in answer to a specific question after the tour had ended). If you're going: dress warmly and in layers, boots are not a necessity (don't let that stop you from going; we didn't need ours once), and be open to whatever might happen (who can predict what you might see or catch :). Thanks Kirk, can't wait to put all the tips and info to good use!
