The Geraldton & Districts Offshore Fishing Club was started in 1985. At the time it was mainly for members who were targeting bottom fish. Meetings were held in an old Scout hall until 1992. The Club then acquired a piece of land on the Geraldton foreshore and through the combined efforts of its many tradie members, Club rooms were completed in 1993.
Over the years the Club has swung more to sports fishing and held the inaugural Abrolhos Islands Tournament in 1997. The tournament has now evolved into one of the premier sport fishing events on the WA coast.
