The Mpumalanga Deep Sea Angling Association is proud to announce the 2011 Tri-facet SADSAA National Championships hosted by the Mpumalanga Deep Sea Angling Association at Sodwana Bay from 20 to 25 November 2011.
Once again this prestigious tournament is proudly sponsored by the South African Deep Sea Angling Association (SADSAA).
The first tri-facet SADSAA Nationals as decided by the SADSAA counsel was hosted by Mpumalanga Deep Sea Angling Association in November 2010. Combining the Heavy Tackle Billfish Nationals, Light Tackle Billfish Nationals and Game Fish Nationals proved to be a great success and this year we believe it will be no different.
The tournament will be fished on 6Kg, 10Kg and 37Kg depending on the facet. The SADSAA points scoring system will apply and IGFA rules will be applicable.
“Beach Control, Beach Control… Little Joey…” the exited and adrenalin rushed voice of skipper Peter Wiid echo’s over the 29 MHz radio as the Mpumalanga heavy tackle team reports their 4th strike on the first day of the tournament. The 2010 SADSAA Nationals is in full swing and the realization dawns on every angler that this is going to be an extraordinary tournament. In 2009 the Heavy Tackle Billfish Nationals saw only three marlin released by the entire fleet in 5 days fishing… something has changed… the ocean is alive!
