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
  • 10% off at the Cedar Key Marina II for storage, bait, and other services
  • Regular 10%-off sporting goods coupon for Alachua Farm & Lumber
  • …and more! Joining provides access to knowledge and experience thru fellowship with other club members.

  • Happy New Year!

    Red released as was 2-3″ too big, yet, great fun to catch. Only Red – had numerous small Trout to release with few keepers.

  • “Blue Fish or Bust” Knopf success

    Last chance of year to clinch Ten Slam Award. Was looking bleak when Ken caught Blue at one. Debbie kept us all in suspense. The Captain was putting gear away to end trip when Debbie caught her Blue on LITERALLY the last cast of day. Quite a way to
