Fishing News

Time for the 16th Edition of the SSFC La Digue Offshore Fishing Tournament coming up this long weekend!


The 16th edition of the SSFC La Digue Offshore Fishing Tournament kicks off Friday morning at Fishtrap Restaurant. For the 3rd year year in a row, La Digue's very own Fishtrap Restaurant, Chateau St Cloud, and Cabanas de Agnes are the main sponsors.

SSFC would like to sincerely thank all other sponsors.

Revenue gained from the sale of the fish goes to a charitable cause on La Digue and to support SSFC's Junior and Conservation programs throughout the year.

The tournament is an all billfish release tournament.

Don't forget the SSFC Team and Skipper's League will be watched closely as the eventual winner will need a very good showing on La Digue. Both Leagues are the most competitive we have seen in many years. Only La Digue and the Big Game Classic remain to crown the winner at the SSFC Gala.

Fishing starts Friday, 1st November at 10:00am and it ends Saturday, 2nd November at 3:00pm with the usual weigh-in party on La Passe Jetty with DJ Basile and DJ Aubrey!

The prize giving will be held at the home of SSFC for the past few years La Digue Island Lodge on Sunday, 3rd November.

Rules are attached.
There is a mandatory registration/skipper's briefing for Mahe boats on Tuesday, 29th October 2019 at 4:30pm at Marine Charter Association.

Good luck to all participants.
