FIB'ersFIB’ers is a Christ-centered, interdenominational fishing club, established in 1983 by our founder Dean Gilbert. Our objective is to create a comfortable, fun, and relaxed environment in which Christian fishermen, their families, and their guests may fish and enjoy Christian fellowship. We encourage family participation in all of our activities and welcome single men and women to our club. Our yearly activities include saltwater charter boat fishing, private boaters tournaments, lake and river trout fishing trips and bay tournaments. We also take disadvantaged kids from Orange County out fishing or whale watching every year. In an effort to pass on our love of fishing to our children, we have created a “FIB’ers Junior Division” that has its own tournaments, charter fishing trips, and yearly awards.

Monthly Meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month in the Fellowship Hall at 7:00 PM.

Here’s a letter sent to us from one of our members:

Dear Newport Mesa Church, I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing the FIBers Fishing Club to meet at your church. This club has been a huge blessing in my life. I am a single woman who started fishing about four years ago and at that time knew very little about saltwater fishing. This club has made it possible for me to go on trips with fellow believers and learn so much in a safe, fun environment. I have gone on a couple trips now and have caught many fish including tuna and dorado. Your church has helped make this possible for me. Just wanted to share with you my appreciation! God bless, Julie.
