Flagler Sportfishing Club

Becan Report: Man is it hot! We will miss some of our snowbirds as they retreat to cooler climates. For the rest of us, I expect the fishing to be spectacular. I encourage all who can to chase some of these tarpon on the beach. For those without a boat, fish the beach, Flagler Pier, or book a guide. If you have never caught one of these spectacular fish, put it on your bucket list. read more...

Their arrival is anticipated by yours truly like the last day of school for a child. Speaking of school children, July is when we as a club get to give back to the community. It’s Kids Fishing Clinic time so please volunteer. Thanks Captain Mike for orchestrating this event year after year. Chris Davy, President

There were two great raffle items, sandwich wraps, potato salad, and macaroni salad to eat. The weather was beautiful and the weigh in had lots of fish to measure and weigh, and had a nice turn out.

NMMA Dissatisfied with U.S. Court of Appeals

Washington, D.C. – October 22, 2014– The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) is disappointed by the decision released on Tuesday, October 21, 2014, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to dismiss the recreational boating industry’s challenge of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) rule regarding misfueling mitigation plans surrounding the sale of E15. The case specifically challenged the EPA’s plans to prevent misfueling including the use of what NMMA believes is a highly inadequate pump warning label amongst other insufficient means.

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 2014 schedule by clicking the link on the upper right.

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..
