Yzerfontein Snoek Classic
Yzerfontein is known all year round for its Snoek catches and the annual Snoek Classic is our club’s primary event normally held over two days during middle December. It has grown to be a popular, fun filled event and has attracted well over 300 participants in the past. Total prizes at the 2015 event exceeded R300 000 in value!
Yzerfontein Tuna Offshore Competition
This competition is held at the end of April/beginning May and boats run out to the deep some 40NM off-shore in search of tuna. Unfortunately this competition tends to be somewhat restrictive as it only accommodates the larger boats which are certified to run this far out to sea. We are very excited to see what the future holds for this competition.
Yzerfontein Yellowtail Challenge
In 2015 this competition attracted 99 boats and over 350 anglers. Yellowtail are abundant around Dassen Island and huge shoals visit our shores, especially during late winter and spring. YBC and Seaport Supply have entered into a long term agreement to host this event annually with a substantial CASH PRIZE for the heaviest yellowtail of the day.
Yzerfontein 3 Species Competition
This competition celebrates the arrival of summer and is held during the last school holiday of the year. The snoek, yellowtail and hottentot species are targeted in this event and points are accumulated per species which counts to the angler’s final score. It requires careful planning by the skipper to ensure anglers maximize their score. We hope to grow this event with a dedicated sponsor in future to become our primary family competition.
