INDIAN OCEAN MARLIN CUP 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.

The clubs of Southern Gauteng Deep Sea Angling Association got to Shelly Beach (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.

South Africa’s inland provincial teams meet in Sodwana this month for the All-Inland Interprovincials.

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.
