Let’s get on the water and go fishing!

Tampa Bay Kayak Anglers is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting kayak fishing around Tampa Bay. Our mission is to cultivate interest in kayak fishing among new and diverse audiences, expand experience for fishing veterans, encourage anglers to target different species and strengthen conservation efforts.
Tampa Bay Kayak Anglers was recently recognized as an Outstanding Partner to the Florida Youth Conservation Network, by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Why Kayak Fishing?
Fishing became a beloved activity during the COVID-19 pandemic, as a safe and fun escape from indoor isolation. Kayak fishing is a great way to workout, enjoy the outdoors, and connect with family and friends.
Florida Fishing License
Florida has its own set of fishing laws and regulations that need to be followed in order to protect their fish populations.
Kayak fishing contributes to conservation efforts in fresh and salt water locations throughout Tampa Bay, by helping control invasive species and overpopulation.
Women Making Waves
Women Making Waves is a women-powered social media movement to help increase female participation and visibility in fishing and boating. To expand the program reach new audiences, we’re seeking female influencer partners to share our mission.
