All-species Auction

After a gap of a few years, GCCA is once again hosting an auction! 

An auction allows you to SELL fish that you want to move out and also to BUY fish to bring home. It's fun and fast-paced!

When and Where

Sunday, November 4, 2018 | 10 AM (Fish registration starts at 9AM)

Doubletree Hotel Downers Grove
2111 Butterfield Rd.
Downers Grove, Illinois, 60515

How do I sell fish at the Auction?

Please register on the Auction registration system

IMPORTANT: Go to our November 2018 Auction Rules page full details on how to register as a buyer and seller.

Essentially, you register each bag of fish online where you can list the species/quantity and upload a picture of the fish. Uploading a picture is optional, but experience tells us this will result in a higher price for your fish.

How do I buy fish at the Auction?

First go to our November 2018 Auction Rules to register. Yo u do not need to provide a credit card or any other financial info.

When you arrive on the day of the auction, you be given a bidder number and bidder card. Listen to the auctioneer and raise your card to bid.

We've created a helpful guide that walks you through the process, see:
