Fishing Club Outings
From time to time the Fishing Club organizes trips to various fishing destinations. These outings are as simple as local one-day drift fishing trips, to multi-day getaways. These trips are designed to foster club camaraderie and family fishing fun. Details on recent or upcoming outings can be found below.
Throughout the year the Fishing Club organizes half-day outings aboard area drift fishing boats. These trips are designed to promote club camaraderie and fun angling competition. These outings are ideally suited for club members who do not own their own boat. Participation is limited to ensure a quality angling experience and feature a big fish award, along with other incentives. Watch for club notices and announcements regarding the next planned drift boat outing.
Each February the WPBFC spends a day on the scenic inshore waters of Hobe Sound tangling with ladyfish, bluefish, pompano, snook & more. This family oriented outing provides a great opportunity to take advantage of some non-stop light tackle fun! The trip is perfect for anglers of all skill levels and is especially well suited for kids…the ladyfish are generally very cooperative! The outing concludes with a potluck style cookout and awards presentation. If you don’t have a boat, we encourage you to try to hook up with a fellow member at an upcoming club meeting or by calling the clubhouse 561-832-6780.
The West Palm Beach Fishing Club invites you to join us on our annual outing to the Dockside Inn & Resort in Ft. Pierce. This wonderful facility, located on the south side of the Ft. Pierce Inlet, has all the amenities required for a club outing. Along with accommodations the site boasts plenty of dockage, two pools, onsite trailer storage, an onsite restaurant, great waterfront gathering & grilling areas, and a bait & tackle shop. Restaurants, shops and grocery stores are all within walking distance.
The Dockside Inn continues to be a great getaway spot for a long family weekend. Once again, we’ve received an excellent room rate. The facility is ideal for both inshore and offshore anglers since it is conveniently located right on the inlet. Onsite docks can accommodate boats up to 35’. This location is also great for members without a boat, as there are plenty of areas to fish from afoot. Club member Barry Brimacomb will serve as the outing coordinator. Members should make reservations directly with the Dockside at 800- 286-1745 (be sure to tell them you’re with the WPBFC). You can visit them online at www.docksideinn.com.
We are looking forward to another great time and encourage you to participate!
