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.

  • Trout on the fly

    Heading to the flats, we were concerned that the high 50 degree water had sent all the trout into their winter holes… well, not this one school of confused trout (who were willing to bite on the fly!) Morgan showed off her skills and brought in around 4 trout.

  • Good red fishing day
    Big Reds

    Paul Dietrich and I had an incredible red fishing day in the airboat. W slammed these upper slot fish plus 48 more that we released.
