August 15th BACK Meeting - Eric Bachnick

Thank you Joe Blum for being our guest speaker at our last meeting. Your skills as a middle school teacher paid off. For those in attendance, do you remember the three most important things to remember about kayak fishing? LOL

Our August meeting is on the 15th. 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 none other than Eric Bachnick, owner of MirrOLure. Not only does Eric make some of the best lures for fishing the bay area but he is also one of the best at fishing the area too. Join us as Eric shares his knowledge of the Tampa Bay, his favorite fishing tips and as always show us how to work them using the pool at Bill Jacksons.. 

We look forward to seeing you there.

August Paddle-In - Point Pinellas - 8/19

Our July night Paddle-In on the Dunedin Causeway was a success. Abut 10 people showed up. We fished from around 7pm to 11 and everyone caught fish and made it back safely. 

Our August Paddle-in is going to be at Point Pinellas on 8/19, launching at 7:00am. There is plenty of room to fish and the fish have been biting. To get to Point Pinellas, get off on the same exit as if you were going to Maximo Park.

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.
