BACK Meetings

BACK is a Tampa Bay area local club for anyone interested in paddle fishing.

Purpose:
To promote camaraderie and fun.
To support safe, legal fishing from kayak or canoe
To advocate environmentally sound use of marine resources.

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month starting at 6:30 p.m. at Bill Jackson’s in Pinellas Park.

Bill Jackson’s donates hot dogs, chips, cookies and soda so you can eat while you learn.

We recommend arriving a little early so you have a chance to meet and talk with friends and other members. If you haven’t been to a meeting before, feel free to come in, find one of our club leaders and ask about the club, fishing, kayaking, etc.

After meetings, Bill Jacksons usually offers a discount on select fishing lures. The discount is only available if you attended the meeting. You don’t have to be a club member to get the discount also.

Past speakers have included FWC Officers, Redish Tour competitor and Guide C.A. Richardson, Brent Gaskell, Blair Wiggens, representatives from Tampa Bay Watch, FWC, Tampa Bay Estuary, and Eric Botnick from MirrOlure and more. See the Speakers page for more information.
