should you become a member of the best fishing club on Long Island?
You and your family can enjoy all
of the great activities sponsored by our club. We have more seminars,
guest speakers, clinics, barbecues and captain/crew meetings than any
other fishing club! We sponsor over 30 fishing contests each year with
cash prizes awarded to club members.

Every January to December, the club sponsors
fishing contests for you to fish in. Each contest or fishing derby as
we like to call them, has awards for first through third place.
It aint just tuna, either! Every year, we have
derbies for fluke, flounder, blackfish, seabass, bluefish, shark, tuna
(of course), striped bass, codfish, mahi, green bonita and false albacore.
At the Freeport Tuna Club, a half pound flounder wins as much as a 200
pound bigeye tuna!
Every year over 45 FTC Awards are presented to club members
who have made outstanding catches during the season. Each award consists
of a $75 Gift Certificate and a beautiful personalized plaque to commemorate
the event! Award categories and recent winners are listed on the Annual
Awards page on this website.
Each Spring we have a Rodeo weekend where club members
and their families fish to win hundreds of dollars worth of prizes. On
Rodeo weekends we fish from Friday night through Sunday and have an awards
barbecue along with a prize ceremony bash at our property on Sunday evening.
The Freeport Tuna Club sponsors various seminars each year
(Tuna, Shark & Striped Bass).
The Freeport Tuna Club has its own clubhouse and marina
on the Hudson Canal in Freeport. The Clubhouse features a small meeting
room for club functions, rest rooms with hot showers and a covered patio
deck. It includes 31 boat slips with a winter bubble system that enables
you to keep your boat in your slip and fish all winter long for trophy
blackfish and codfish. There is plenty of room for dock boxes and freezers,
along with secured parking for you and your guests.
The Freeport Tuna Club meets every second Thursday of the
month. All club business is taken care of and there is a hot and cold
buffet with beer and soda available for all to enjoy! Guest speakers who
are respected experts in their fields are scheduled whenever possible.
From April into November, Thursday nights are your night
out at the Freeport Tuna Club. Whether it's an Open Fishing Clinic, Private
Club Fishing Clinic, or a Captain-Crew meeting, the barbecue is always
running on Thursday nights. At the Club's Marina you'll find plenty of
good food, sturdy drink, and fish stories galore.
