Our BAC mission

We are a family of fishing men, women and children who all love the outdoors, the strike of a fish and the satisfaction of the Catch or Release.

All BAC members enjoy fellowship, fishing programs, seminars, recognition, trophies, awards, newsletters, an IGFA certified weigh station, an exclusive fishing hot-line to give you the latest fishing reports, access to world wide tournaments and a great clubhouse to enjoy beautiful Newport Bay during our gatherings.

We Sponsor the prestigious “Master Angler Billfish Tournament”, the “Junior Angler’s Tournament” and participate in most other tournaments in Southern California. We have “Pot Luck” parties on the BAC clubhouse deck several times a year and celebrate an annual trophy awards event.

We encourage conservation and are closely affiliated with many conservation groups including International Game Fish Association, Billfish Foundation, and the Pacific Fisheries Enhancement Foundation in conjunction with Hubbs/Seaworld Research Institute, where we operate and manage the White Seabass grow out pens here in Newport Beach.

We invite you to join us at the Balboa Angling Club and believe that once you’re a member, you’ll be hooked for life!
