Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip Rotation

How To Join FCS / How To Renew Your Membership

Welcome to The Fellowship of Christian Sportsmen (FCS)!  We’re what you’re hunting for!

We are a 320+ member non-denominational, non-political, family-friendly hunting, fishing, and sport shooting club established in the Austin, Texas area in 1988.  We have served the outdoors community for 32+ years!  We are also non-profit but are not tax-exempt.  We remain based in Austin.

We minister to sportsmen by offering quality and affordable hunting and fishing trips, shoots, and similar activities across the state (but primarily in Central Texas) year-round.  We love to fish, and strive to be fishers of men.

FCS membership, church membership, and being a Christian are not required in order to participate in FCS events or join FCS.  However, FCS members and guests are required to uphold the FCS Rules of Conduct while on FCS events.  Of course, we appreciate it when people join FCS as that helps us with our expenses.  We also have an Event Hierarchy, so if a supporting member and a non-supporting member (for example) want the last spot for an event, the supporting member would get the spot.

Events

Our 2022 events include:

  • A Chartered Bay Fishing Trip
  • A Chartered Hybrid, Striped, and White Bass Fishing Trip
  • A Family Banquet
  • A Guided Upland Bird (chukar, pheasant, and quail) Hunt
  • A Ministry Event (Wild Game Dinner)
  • A Self-guided Hog Hunt
  • A Semi-guided Hog Hunt
  • An Officers Meeting
  • FCS Meetings and Dinners
  • FCS Sporting Clays Shoots
  • Guided Inland Waterfowl (duck, goose, sandhill crane, and teal) Hunts
  • Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trips
  • Self-chartered Freshwater Fishing Trips
  • Self-guided/chartered Blasts and Casts (Duck Hunts and Bay Fishing Trips)
  • Self-guided Duck and Teal Hunts
  • Semi-guided Dove Hunts
  • Sporting Clays Tournaments

We make our best efforts, but we do not offer a guaranteed harvest for any of our hunts or fishing trips.

Evening events last around 2 1/2 hours and hunting and fishing trips last from a half-day to four days.

We try to balance expensive and inexpensive events.  Through many years of experience, we have found that051216_FCS Guided Fishing_Group 1 inexpensive guided hunting and chartered fishing trips often result in poor harvests (as the saying goes, you get what you pay for) and in frustrated participants who do not return.  We prefer to pay a standard landowner/outfitter/guide rate to have a better chance of success.

Additional expenses often include tips, game cleaning fees (for those who wish to have their game cleaned by the guide), boat launch or state or county park fees, bait, food, shared lodging fees, and shared gas (both vehicle and boat).  We know that not everyone can afford chartered/guided events; therefore, we offer self-guided/chartered events without guide fees and tips and game cleaning fees (see our Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip Rotation for an example).  Of course, for our self-chartered/guided events we usually don’t do as well as we do for our chartered or guided events.
