The Fish-On Fishing Club of New Port Richey originated to promote the social gathering of Local Fishing Enthusiasts and to share knowledge with each other. We promote good sportsmanship, fellowship, conservation, improved angling skills, teaching children to fish and the mutual exchange of ideas to further angling enjoyment.
The Club holds monthly meetings the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM at Gulf Landings Clubhouse at 6035 Barefoot Ct. New Port Richey. Guest are welcome.
This one page information sheet is intended to give prospective members a short version on what our club and members do throughout the year. Most of the information on this sheet is described in great detail on this website.
Education: Monthly meeting includes a fishing education segment. We usually have a guest speaker. Speakers include professional fishing charter captains, professional guides, or Club members. Topics include techniques, strategies, tackle, and skills used to increase fishing knowledge.
Tournaments (3 Tournaments this year): for only a $10.00 entry fee you test you skill to see if you can win cash prizes paid for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd places for each species divisions Species usually include redfish, trout, snook, kingfish, grouper, Spanish mackerel, etc.
Monthly Targeted Species Tournament: Each month a fish species is targeted and during the month members who catch that species can record the size. At the monthly meeting members report their catch and the member with the largest catch receives a certificate and is entered in a drawing for a cash prize at the “After The Holidays Club Party”.
Year Long Tournament: Here you can enter for as many species as you would like for a chance to will cash prizes handed out at our annual After Holiday Party.
Members fishing with members: All members are encouraged to invite other members to fish with them. We try to make this easier by having each member complete a member fishing profile that is available in the “Members only area” on our website www.FishOnClub.org
Community involvement includes:
Children’s Wish-to-Fish outings: We take 30 children from a residential group home for abandoned and abused children fishing for a day of fishing. This is a “FREE” full day of fishing aboard the charter boat “Miss Virginia”. The trip also includes food and Club tee shirts for all of the children with volunteer Club members assisting the kids. The outing results in a very enjoyable, rewarding feeling for the members as well.
YMCA Children’s Tournament: Our club helps the local YMCA run a children’s tournament where we help up to 400 kid’s fish.
Anclote Kid’s fishing derby is where we help the Holiday Recreation center host another children’s outing.
Social Activities include:
After Holiday Party is held in January at a very nice country club were we enjoy a delicious dinner (subsidized by the club), camaraderie and a Chinese gift exchange.
