Welcome to the Tampa Bay Area Canoe & Kayak Fishing Club. For the past 10+ years, we have been a community of people with a passion for fishing and being close to the water. We welcome everyone to our monthly meetings and fishing get together's called GOOMBA's. Whether you are an novice or expert, please join us on the third Tuesday of every month at Bill Jackson's in St. Petersburg for some food, friendship and education.

Tight lines and smooth seas

May 16th BACK Meeting - Ray Markham

We hope you enjoyed our member round-table last month. A special thanks to Curt, Sam and John for taking the stage and sharing. 

This month, our meeting is on May 16th. The meeting starts at 6;30pm but try to get there a little early for hot dogs, chips, cookies and drinks.

Our guest speaker is Ray Markham. Ray is a well know guide, author and writer who will be sharing what he knows about fishing Tampa Bay at this time of year. With the CCA tournament starting at the end of the month, don't be surprised if he talks about redfish.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Our club meetings are free to attend. We invite you to join us and become a paid member as well. Dues are $30 a year and you can pay online or at the meeting. Members get a shirt or hat plus participate in a few member only activities we have throughout the year.

If you haven't already paid, members please remember to bring dues or pay your dues online soon.

May 20th Goomba - North Skyway Rest Area

The Goomba is on Saturday the 20th at the North Skyway rest area. There is a nice beach launch and plenty of flats to fish. For those brave enough, the main channel is not too far away. We launch at 7am but feel free to arrive early. Donald is planning to be there so we will be providing chicken, hot dogs, and hamburgers cooked on the grill. Bring your own drinks.

If you are looking for someone to kayak fish with, reach out to us anytime through our forum or Facebook page and ask.We have several members that will help point you in the right direction or invite you to join them.
