Now: All the Big Fishing Competitions in March

From the  Indian Ocean Marlin Cup to local St Lucia and Richards Bay and Southern Gauteng’s annual Rosebowl, these are all the offshore and boat fishing competitions in March 2019

Nothing under 500 pounds in Seychelles. An all-inland clubs interprovincial. And marlin comps all-round. These are all the dates, contacts and venues for all biggest offshore and boat fishing competitions to be aware of in March 2019.



1–2 March 2019

Big prize money and exclusively marlin weighing over 500 pounds (that about 230kg and up) is the name of the game in this international competition. It’s hosted in Seychelles, but you don’t have to physically go there to compete. Anyone can take part, as long as you fish in demarcated zones inside the Indian Ocean (Including South Africa, North and South Australia and the Arabian Gulf and the Red Sea). You can fish in local time and just call in your catches. It’s a super exciting way to run an international comp. Discover the first-ever Indian Ocean Marlin Cup

10–15 MARCH 2019

The clubs of Southern Gauteng Deep Sea Angling Association got to Shelly Beach Ski-Boat Club (KZN) for the annual Rosebowl – their interclub deep sea fishing tournament. It’s a game- and billfish competition, with most guys going after marlin and sailfish. But a good catch of tuna has been known to tip the favour of a club very quickly, so be on your toes. Discover the annual SGDSAA Rosebowl.

South Africa’s inland provincial teams meet in Sodwana this month for the All-Inland Interprovincials. It’s hosted by the Mpumalanga Deep Sea Angling Association (MDSAA) this year, and it’s about catching the big game- and billfish. The provincial teams are usually joined by a few inland club teams for A simultaneous All-Inland Clubs comp. And, as always, the competition promotes tag and release of fish species.
