THE OSTERVILLE ANGLERS’ CLUB
Located on the shores of Crosby Basin, the Osterville Anglers’ Club is a family oriented club, committed to promoting and advancing the sport of recreational fishing. With an active and dedicated membership, the Club sponsors a number of fishing tournaments, social activities and education events throughout the year. What started in the late 1980s as the idea of a small group of local sportsmen – to form a fishing club where the entire family could be involved in angling and other related activities – has evolved into what is today a premiere fishing club on Cape Cod.
Effective Friday, May 26, 2023, the slot for striped bass is 28″ to less than 31″ and anglers are permitted to keep one fish per day. This rule is in effect for all OAC tournaments as well as for the Derby.
The next tournament is Game of Shoals. Lots of fun, plenty of prizes! For more details, please see event under “Tournaments”.
