Welcome to the
Hillsborough Sportfishing Club
The Hillsborough Sportfishing Club (HSFC) consists of a diverse group of men, women, young adults, and kids who share the adventure of sportfishing. More than that, we like to help people learn how to fish and enjoy the sport at a reasonable cost. We do this through education, fishing trips, and partnering with private business and non-profit organizations to sponsor fundraising events for charitable organizations. We have fun doing what we do please come join us.
The HSFC Recent News
We are excited to kick-off the NC Offshore Challenge Tournament this Friday, May 15th at the Captain’s meetings at Captain Bill’s Waterfront Restaurant in Morehead City and OBX Marina in Wanchese. The weather forecast is nearly perfect for 2 days of dolphin, tuna, and wahoo fishing in the Gulf Stream Saturday and Sunday. Tournament entries are higher than in the past; however, there is still time to enter at the registration booth or enter online.
The tournament has gone to new heights this year; here are some highlights:
• Raised funds to pay for a day of fishing for 150 Wounded Warriors (50 more than last year)
• Added a second port at OBX Marina
• Added the first ever “Festival for Wounded Warriors” at Oregon Inlet
• Lots of activities and fun to be had by all at both ports this weekend
• Morehead City - Tournament Event Schedule
• Wanchese - Tournament Event Schedule
Armed Forces Day is Saturday, May 16th. Join us in thanking all of our military men and woman for their service to our blessed country and keeping us free!
Finally, a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our sponsors, private donors, and volunteers who made the tournament a reality this year. Because of our success and support of local communities and statewide businesses, this tournament is continuing to grow. Please ask a tournament volunteer how you can help to support this event honoring our Wounded Warriors and the great sport of offshore fishing.
Have a great weekend, may you catch the prize winning fish, and don't forget to visit our Tournament page on this website for updates.
Our next monthly meeting is Thursday, June 4th, at Huey's Oyster Bar & Restaurant in Mebane, NC. Come join us at 6:30 pm for an informal social gathering and dinner. The meeting starts at 7:00 pm.
