The Mpumalanga Deep Sea Angling Association is proud to announce the 37th Mercury OET Bill & Gamefish Tournament hosted at Sodwana Bay from 3 to 7 November 2014.
Once again this prestigious tournament is proudly sponsored by Mercury Outboards. This tournament has grown from strength to strength since its inception in the late seventies, hence the timeous announcement. Our field has been limited, so it is vitally important to make use of this early reminder to register straight away.
The tournament will be fished on 10Kg and 37Kg line (line class to be nominated daily). Point scoring will be 100 points per release of Billfish and 1 point per kg on Gamefish, irrespective of the line class. The SADSAA scoring system will apply only for the most meritorious fish prizes. IGFA and SADSAA rules will be applicable. Teams must consist of not less than two (2) persons and no more than legally permitted on a boat.
Please note that the release of all billfish is compulsory, no billfish can be brought to the weigh-ins. Fish released and gamefish weighed will become eligible to WIN the first prize of the tournament which is a 630 Cobra Cat with 2X115 HP Mercury Fourstroke outboards insured by Cross Country Insurance.
Teams in the top three positions will not qualify for any other main/bonanza prizes. (Please note that this excludes the Calcutta prize monies)
