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
1-630-971-2000 | Map and Directions

How do I sell fish at the Auction?

We are using a new, on-line Auction System for the first time. Read the November 2018 Auction Rules for full details on how to register your fish.

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?

When you arrive, you will register as a buyer and 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:
