I developed my passion for fishing growing up on the shores of Lake Erie with my parents who loved to fish and boat. My husband Bruce and I also fished the Chesapeake Bay for 30 years near our home in Severna Park, Maryland. Following retirement, we decided to move to Orlando area so we could continue our quest for fishing adventures in the ocean, Gulf, lagoons, rivers and lakes in our bay boat and kayaks. We are also enjoying passing on our love of fishing to our grandchildren. CFOA is a great family friendly fishing club. I enjoy meeting new fishing friends, listening to guest speakers to learn new techniques, going to club events and trips, and having a great time fishing with members who share the love of sportfishing.
