Welcome to the Gainesville Offshore Fishing Club

The Gainesville Offshore Fishing Club is a non-profit family organization with a current membership of over 100 families who have a common interest in both inshore and offshore saltwater angling in North Central Florida.

While our name implies that we are only offshore fishermen, the club really has about an equal mix of inshore and offshore anglers with club meetings and programs equally divided between both types of fishing.

Benefits of membership: It pays to be a member!

Joining the GOFC can easily pay for itself. A small sample of membership benefits include:

  • Free entry into GOFC fishing tournaments (with cash payouts!)
  • Discounts on SeaTow memberships ($20 off for new Seatow members; $10 off for renewals)
  • 10% off at the Cedar Key Marina II for storage, bait, and other services
  • Regular 10%-off sporting goods coupon for Alachua Farm & Lumber
  • 10% off from any service from Rub a Dub Dub Cleaning Service
  • …and more! Joining provides access to knowledge and experience thru fellowship with other club members.

  • Spring Middle Grounds Snapper Trip

    Made a last minute trip to the middle grounds to check out some new spots and fill up the freezer with mangroves, vermilion, red grouper and kingfish. Nice day.

  • Personal best

    After trying several likely Cobia spots with no luck ended day catching largest Cobia of my life blind fishing a straight line shiner on Seahorse Reef. Talk about luck – go figure!
