Fish on Kayak Adventure

I am blessed to be called a native Floridian, born and raised in Pinellas County. I have been a middle school and high school Math and Science teacher for almost 20 years and counting. Four years ago I decided to take my passion for fishing and kayaking and merge them with my gift of teaching to create Fish On Kayak Adventure, LLC. This venture was twofold, to guide people to catch fish of a lifetime from the kayak and also help youth discover the order and beauty of creation we have in our native waters.
