GHCA Fishing Club
The Gulf Harbors Fishing Club meets at the Civic Center on the 3rd Thursday of the month. The doors open at 6:30 PM for members to chat; the meetings begin at 7:00 PM.
During the meetings club members share their fishing experiences since the last meeting. What they caught, what they used for bait, and where they fished.
Guest speakers are scheduled for the meetings. They include local charter Captains that cover how to fish for the various species of fish in our Gulf waters, what they use for bait, and where to fish. The Coast Guard and Fish and Wildlife cover safety on the water and fishing regulations. Local marine mechanics talk about boat and engine maintenance and repair. The club also participates in the International Coastal Cleanup Day the 3rd Saturday of September, where they pick up trash in our channels, Anclote Island and the sandbar.
The club has an anuual holiday dinner as well as several family outings during the year. For example: picnics on the sandbar and local restaurants. In addition, they host an annual fish fry each fall.
The club has a raffle at the end of each meeting; it could be a 50/50 or prizes like rod and reel combos, fishing tackle, and other items for fishing or use on the boat.
The Gulf Harbors Fishing Club has something for all family members. It is open to men, women and children who are members of the Gulf Harbors Civic Association. There are no club membership fees, just come to the meetings to join.
