Every month we have a social featuring a guest speaker to talk about saltwater fishing. There are also raffles, fishing reports, and food. If you are a beginner this is a great way to learn new techniques. If you are an experienced angler please come out and share what you have learned.
We have at least 2 tournaments every year. Our annual CFOA tournament is held in May out of Port Canaveral. It has over $10,000 in cash and prizes and is open to the public. Learn More
