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

December 20th BACK Annual Christmas Party

We will not be having our regular BACK club meeting in December. Instead, we hope you can join us at our Annual Holiday Party on December 20th at 6:00PM at Bill Jackson's. 

This pot luck event is open to all members, their families and guests. It is informal and includes a Dirty Santa/White Elephant Gift Exchange and a Toy Drive for Metropolitan Ministries.

Please bring a dish to share, bring an UNWRAPPED child's gift(s) that we will deliver to Metropolitan Ministries to have Santa deliver. To participate in the Dirty Santa Gift Exchange, please bring a WRAPPED gift (for each person participating) of a value no greater than $10.00 for a blind draw. Caution, mayhem often ensues during this event! Gag gifts are great, fishing related, even better.

Please visit our forum and enter what dish you will be bringing and how many in your party. Remember, only those who provide a wrapped gift can participate in the Gift Exchange.

Hope to see you. If you cannot attend, please accept BACK Club wishes for a Joyous Holiday Season and a Merry Christmas for you and your family.

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.
