 Saltwater Fishing

"Way down upon the Suwanee River" Literally at the mouth of the Suwannee River, members of the Gilchrist Club will experience one of the most bountiful fisheries on the Gulf Coast of Florida. This area is well known for its phenomenal catches of speckled trout, flounder and the ever prized redfish. Large schools of tarpon, cobia and pompano go in search of the mullet and herring that fill the waters during the warmer summer months. This is almost a year round fishery starting in early spring and running well into the winter. So call member services to book your trip, way down upon the Suwannee River!
