GET TO KNOW US

The Emerald Coast Big Game Fishing Club (ECBGFC) is a modernized social fishing club, originating in Destin, Florida in January 2022, where "The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village'' will retain its roots.  We host themed Club Meetings to discuss hot fishing topics and share fishing stories, and host several fishing tournaments throughout the year.  ECBGFC hosts the only tournaments on the Gulf Coast that are Catch & Release only for the billfish division in efforts to support conservation.  We have incorporated ECBGFC with the first high school in Destin, Destin High School, and their accredited Fishing Class and Fishing Club to help educate and fund efforts.  ECBGFC also launched the Destin for Success Scholarship Program awarding scholarships to art students of Okaloosa and Walton County.  Education, conservation, and giving back to the Community are what we strive towards.  We conclude the year with the black-tie, Sportsman's Ball to present awards to top teams, anglers, and recognize our great sponsors, along with dinner, drinks, and dancing to celebrate the year.  

As we roll into our second year in 2023, we are excited to announce our growth with a new Chapter in Panama City Beach, Florida, where we will host additional club meetings and tournaments.  For an even bigger experience, complete your year by competing in our new tournament in Los Suenos, Costa Rica.  

Memberships are all inclusive to ECBGFC events and tournaments at all locations.  Don't miss out on a spectacular year!  We truly appreciate your support and welcome everyone onboard.
