RICHARDS BAY BILLFISH CLASSIC (INTERCLUB + INTERPROVINCIAL)
4–7 MARCH 2020
Big marlin. Three Days of family fun. And two comps rolled into one. The Richards Bay Billfish Classic is both a 37kg line-class interclub comp hosted by Richards Bay Ski-Boat Club and at the same time an interprovincial hosted by Zululand Deep Sea Angling at the club.
Entry fees for both tourneys are R6 600 per team and there will be loads of excitement and fun at the club for the whole family. See you at the 2020 Richards Bay Billfish Classic.

SGDSAA ROSEBOWL INTERCLUB
8–13 MARCH 2020
The clubs of Southern Gauteng Deep Sea Angling Association go to Guinjata 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.
