Capt. Linda Bio:
I grew up fishing in Northern California, lived in the Atlanta area for 9 yrs before moving to the Panhandle in my mid twenties, I fell in love with Florida’s emerald waters, extensive bayous and beautiful grass flats. I now live in Panama City Beach. I got my USCG OUPV/Captains license several years ago with guiding in mind. I love sharing my passion of kayak/SUP fishing with others and introducing people to the sport. I have caught sailfish & tarpon from my kayak but my favorite style of fishing is to sight fish. I founded PCKFA, the local kayak club in 2010 in Panama City Beach, and am on Team Hobie & theSunjammers Watersports prostaff and also Bending Branches/Aqua Bound paddles. When not fishing & guiding, I am spending time with my family who all love to fish and spend time on the water as well.
