There are virtually no restrictions for membership except that you are an amicable person that gets along with others and practices honesty and integrity.
If you are joining as a boater we are a Sanctioned Bass Club registered with The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission and all participating boats must be properly equipped with an effective Aeration Livewell System and be large enough to safely fish two anglers. We fish some large lakes in Central Florida so your boat has to be able to safely maneuver back to the ramp during sudden windy rainy weather events.(we require at least a 55hp outboard).
Welcome and thanks for visiting. The OBC started in 1972 and a few of the original members are still active today. We would love for you to attend one ofour once a month meetings. They are held the first Thursday of every month at Denny's Restaurant right off of the I-4 and Lee Rd. exit. We usually start eating dinner about 6:30 and start the meeting around 7pm.
The OBC is a "Draw" Club.Each month names are drawn at random and boaters and non-boaters are paired up for the monthly upcoming Club Tournament.
It is not possible to join our club and fish as father and son or permanent partners.
There are lots of reasons why it is not possible for all our members to own a fishing boat. Occasionally there are more non-boaters than boaters which means members will be accommodated before guests.
Normally we can work it out. If you own a boat and are looking for an authentic bass club to join we would love to have you visit with us.
The Orlando Bass Club was founded in 1972
