Timed to fall during the peak of the Southern California yellowtail fishing season off the coast, the 9th Annual Bloodydecks Yellowtail Shootout will be held June 26-28 out of the Kona Kai Resort in San Diego.
This year’s tournament will feature the same three fish aggregate bag weight per team as last year. Teams will be allowed to weigh up to five fish. The three heaviest yellowtail will go toward a team’s weight. There will also be a special prize for the angler bagging the biggest yellowtail of the event.
There will also be optional Winner-Take-All jackpots in aggregate bag and big fish categories.
Entry fee is $325 per team (up to three anglers) and the top team (three-fish) prize, which is based on 100 teams, is $5,000, with second $2,500, third at $1,000, fourth at $750, and $500 for fifth.
