Welcome To The New Orleans Big Game Fishing Club
The New Orleans Big Game Fishing Club is a private club whose members share a passion for fishing the waters in the northern Gulf of Mexico in search of the many species of billfish, tuna, wahoo, and dolphin. The NOBGFC prides itself in one of the highest catch and release ratios of similar such clubs, and our efforts over many years have been widely recognized in conservation circles for the collection of very valuable scientific data on many of these highly migratory species, especially regarding blue and white marlin. Our Club members have enjoyed a rich 40 year history of fishing, fun, and friendships and we look forward to many more years of fish tales and fun beyond the waters of South Pass.
Please Save the Date! The New Orleans Big Game Fishing Club will host its 2013 Spring Awards Banquet on April 12 at the Metairie Country Club. I formal invitation will arrive by mail.
