"You only get out of life, when you get out and do."

Kevin Whitley aka “Kayak Kevin” started kayaking as a vacation from his musician life, but it ended up being his life focus and he left the unhealthy night life for a healthier life outside. His original intention was for touring but a fishing rod was always part of it. After his first three tours he teamed up with Ric Burnley and where the first kayakers to target the Chesapeake bays big fish and hard to get fish. In 2006 he went after the Va saltwater expert angler award and was the first to achieve it out of a kayak, then did it again the following year. In 2008 he filmed with Jim Sammons and caught the filming bug and started filming himself. The result was 4 DVDs and over a hundred YouTube videos…so far. In 2014 he started a podcast with guest and open conversation.
