Gainesville Offshore Fishing Club

GOFC All-Time Fish Records

Record fish must be caught by hook and line sport fishing, and must be caught in the GOFC tournament area of the Gulf of Mexico (see club rules...).

Weight is recorded in pounds except for those species marked with an asterisk for which length is recorded in inches.

Print this page and keep the copy in your boat...just in case!
