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.

  • First Triple Tail

    Went out targeting Triple tail and ended up catching two over 13lbs a piece not bad for my very first one.

  • Monster Cuda

    We went out for a day of fishing for Spanish Macks and hopefully a big Kingfish, but instead I landed my first Barracuda and what a good one to start with.
