The Ancient City Game Fish Association (ACGFA)

The Ancient City Game Fish Association (ACGFA) was organized in 1958. We currently have approximately 130 Members, 6 Honorary Members, and 9 Lifetime Members. Our membership year is from June 1st to May 30th. Dues are $50 a year for a Membership. For new members only, dues are ½ price from December 1st to May 30th. 

The purposes of this organization are to promote the sport of fishing in this area and do whatever is in our power to improve fishing grounds and facilities in the area. 

The ACGFA is very family oriented. We have annual fishing awards for Boats-of-the-Year (inshore and offshore) and Anglers-of-the-Year (Men, Women, Junior (age 8 to 16) and Small-fry (7 and under). 

In addition, there are fishing tournaments for various species almost every month as well as two fish fry/cook-out events, a Christmas Party for the family, and the End of Year Awards/Membership Dinner. Our meetings are conducted at the St. Augustine Shrine Club, 250 1st Street, St. Augustine, Florida. Meetings start at 6:30 p.m. with a social hour and the general meeting starts at 7:30. We usually have snacks and a speaker and a "Kids Club" for young anglers. Guests are welcome.

I would like to thank all of the anglers that came out to fish the tournament, it was a great turn out and I hope everyone enjoyed themselves.  Also, I would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped with the planning and execution of the tournament without each and everyone of you it would not have been successful.  

We have already started the planning for the 2015 Ancient City Game Fish Challenge and hope to see each and everyone of you back next year.  We had fun this year and will definately continue that next year.
