Description

Introduction

In 1983, John Conlon and Steve McElveen saw a need to start a fishing club in the Central Florida area. Both felt a need as they fished the coastal areas and found that many other anglers were from the Central Florida area. However, unlike many of the ports, Central Florida did not have a fishing club. So through their insight and the efforts of Charlie Eby, Ray Stanton, Jim Neff, and Bill Matthews, Central Florida Offshore Anglers was created.
