Monthly Outings

The Club sponsors a fishing outing each month. All outings are based on an Honor System. You don’t have to keep your catch or take a picture of it either. Outings are scheduled for the weekend following the general membership meeting. Outings are usually three day events where anglers select to fish Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Most outings are scheduled from first safe light till 1PM. The targeted fish and scoring change from month to month with interesting twists such as number of spots on redfish or more points for one species than another. The intent is to have fun! The winner of each monthly outing receives a Club logo embroidered fishing shirt. As part of the outing we have several lunches at restaurants (our sponsors), club and family cookouts. Additionally, the Board is encouraging members to partake of the lunch regardless of the day fished. With one outing at Round Island and the remainder based at Sandsprit Park there is opportunity to participate without travelling around the state.

Monthly Membership Meetings With Speakers

The monthly membership meeting is the second Thursday of the month. Our meetings are held at the Clarion Inn located at 1200 SE Federal Hwy.(US 1), Stuart, FL. Dinner is available 6 PM  before the 7 PM meeting.  We have the privilege of many fishing industry and conservation leaders in the Southeastern Florida region. These experts include tackle manufacturers, tournament winning Captains and guides, television and print journalists and academic researchers. We have a guest speaker at each monthly meeting. Speakers will address topics of interests such as how to fish for the upcoming outing’s targeted species and our diverse estuary system.   This is a great way to gain additional local knowledge of this fishery.
