Flagler Sportfishing Club

From the Helm You can’t pick up a paper, watch TV or check Facebook without finding some “expert” talking about Florida water quality. Our beautiful state, its waterways and its fisheries, are in big trouble. It’s taken a long time to get to this point and it will take a long time, if ever, to fix it, but we must step up now! In conversations with State DEP officials they have nowhere near the necessary resources or money to fix this, nor do they have a solution. Elected officials need to stop pointing figures and take action. While the club takes no political position, please make sure you understand your candidate’s position on water quality before you cast your vote in November. You can also contribute to any one of the activist organizations or lobbying groups working on this issue as well. It’s going to take a ton of money to fix this and we need to motivate our elected officials to stop talking and start doing. We cannot sit idly by and let this happen to our state, so get involved.read more...

On a related front there is grass roots movement afoot to reduce some game fish bag limits, specifically redfish and trout. Our own fishery continues to decline from so many factors we need to voluntarily work towards a solution before NOAA just closes it like they did to the red snapper. The proposal as I know it now is not unreasonable, at one red fish per person, per day and 4 trout per person per day. If we don’t police ourselves, someone else will. There will be a lot more to come on these topics, so stay tuned.
Tight Lines!
Captain Chuck Gleichmann, President

About

Welcome to the Flagler Sportfishing Club website. We are an extremely active club with around 200 family's (over 400 members). Our meeting place has changed recently to the VFW in Palm Coast. We meet once a month and have a lot of events and tournaments throughout the year. Some of our tournaments pay cash awards of up to 4,000.00 dollars while others are smaller but just as much fun! Check out the 2017 schedule by clicking the Menu link on the upper right and selecting Schedule.

Our club meetings focus on educating our members on local fishing techniques as well as staying informed on local laws and regulations. Most meetings are attended by a speaker who is a professional fishing guide in our local area. If you are considering joining our club, stop by on the first Wednesday of any month (except December). See more info under the membership link above.

Our success is a direct result of our member participation, as well as our great sponsors. We encourage each and every member to come to our meetings, and participate in our tournaments. And don't forget, when your shopping in the area to visit our sponsors and thank them for their support..
