Fishing Activities and Tournaments

Baja East CapeFishing activities have always been an important part of Dana Point Yacht Club. Each year the club hosts a number of fishing tournaments open to its members. Rules for these tournaments are designed to stress fun and encourage conservation. Anglers are rewarded for following responsible catch and release practices. At the close of each year, the Vince Talley Memorial Trophy for Angler of the Year is presented to the fishing team that scored the highest number of points in the scheduled tournaments.

Anglers also compete for "first catch of the year" flags and the bragging rights which come with winning. There are eight "First Of The Year" categories: White Sea Bass, Halibut, Yellowtail, Albacore Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, Mako, and Marlin. The flags are awarded to the first of each species reported to me that are either caught in local waters on a private boat, or caught during a club event (the only fish caught on a charter boat that count are ones caught on a club sanctioned event).

Our calendar is highlighted by monthly angler meetings where we often bring in industry professionals to educate, and we always brag about our latest catches.

We have monthly local tournaments, and always end the season with a trip to Mexico (fly in and fish locally) that always provides memorable fishing, and a great time by all.
