A GOFC MEMBERS-ONLY TOURNAMENT — Participating anglers must be GOFC members in good standing at the time of the tournament (family included) and must have individually caught the entered fish. Guests may ride in GOFC boats, but cannot submit or share their fish. All contestants must have a valid Florida Fishing License and may fish anywhere in the Club waters as long as the fish are brought to the weigh-in on time. Please check regulations for target species. Interpretation of the tournament rules shall be at the sole discretion of the Tournament Chairman.
Prior to start, the Tournament Committee must be provided with boat name, size and make, captain’s name and name of all anglers (and any guests) on board, indicating if any lady or youth anglers on board are participating. Sign up online in advance (by 6:00 pm the evening before the tournament.)
Start at “safe light” on the day of tournament from any Club waters port. GOFC communications are on VHF channel 68. Safe light is 6:30 AM. Boaters should exercise caution if low light, poor visibility and poor weather conditions.
Prizes will be awarded based on weight of GOFC target species. All fish weighed must be of legal size per Florida regulations and in-season. Amberjack cannot be entered due to out-of-season.
