Bay Area Canoe and Kayak Fishing Club

Where friends get together to share the Tampa Bay area waters.

Welcome to the B.A.C.K. Fishing Club website.

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

July 2016 Goomba

Our July Goomba will be at one of our favorite spots, Fort Desoto. Meet us July 23rd. We launch around 7am from the beach just south of the 50 cent toll. If you go over the bridge you went to far. Take your pick and go after Reds, Snook and Trout or whatever else you think might be swimming around. If you are new to kayak fishing or would like to fish with someone rather than going on your own, let one of the club officers know and we will get you connected.

We normally stop fishing around 1pm but feel free to stay out there as long as you want. Bring sunscreen and the right clothes because it will be hot. Bring your own drinks and lunch. We will discuss whether we are cooking at the club meeting.
