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.
