2021 WON CA Yellowtail Jackpot
Sat Jun 12 2021 at 04:00 am to 07:00 pm
San Diego Marlin Club | San Diego, CA
After a very successful CA Tuna Jackpot event, we decided that we would add a new event to our 2021 event schedule. WON is excited to be working with the San Diego Marlin Club yet again for what we feel is going to be another amazing fun filled fishing tournament for years to come. Once again our sponsors will be heavily involved and ready to doll out thousands of dollars in gear for the first installment of the Ca Yellowtail Jackpot.
The format for the event is based on teams of 2 and up to 6 anglers max, will compete for the top 3 largest yellowtail caught during the competition on Saturday, June 12th, will win our top 3 general entry payouts. Based on 50 teams we will be paying out $7000 for 1st, $2000 to 2nd and $1000 to the 3rd place teams. The California Yellowtail Jackpot will be a one day tournament (lines in at 4:00 A.M. – lines out at 4:00 P.M. on June 12th) where the 3 teams with the heaviest 3 yellowtail are in the money.
The WON California Yellowtail Jackpot entry fee is $400 per team of four. You may have less than four team members, but there must be a minimum of two members on each boat. Teams may have up to six maximum team members. No more than 6 people are allowed on any tournament boat during tournament hours, and all people on the boat must be on the registered team. Each team member over four is $100 additional for each member. The California Yellowtail Jackpot will have optional yellowtail jackpots available for teams interested in boosting their chances at big money payouts. The event also offers teams tuna optionals, as we all know there should be some roaming the same grounds as the yellowtail during our event. Please click on the entry form for more details on our available jackpot options.
Teams are encouraged to sign up as early as possible with at least their general team entry, so we can make sure all team members are registered and have completed the necessary paperwork to be eligible for team earnings. Teams may send entry by mail with options included. Each team member must complete and send back an event waiver form prior to the start of the event. Options will not be available online and must be paid by check, wire transfer or money order in advance or at one of three registration locations on June 11th from 2:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. Those teams that have completed their team registration requirements prior to June 4th, will receive their team packets in the mail prior to the event start date.
Once a team has completed their registration process and has been cleared by WON, registered teams may launch at any Southern California launch facility of their choice, and begin their journey to their chosen fishing grounds. Tournament fishing times are June 12th from 4:00 A.M to 4:00 P.M. All tournament fish “MUST” be presented to our official weigh station by boat at the San Diego Marlin Club with all team members on board. The weigh-in will be held at the S.D Marlin Club dock between 5:00 P.M. and 7:00 P.M on June 12th. All teams must be inside the Ballast Point landmark entry of the bay by 6:00 P.M. to be eligible to weigh their catch. Teams may not fish for target species until lines-in at 4:00 A.M, but may make bait prior to lines in.
The California Yellowtail Jackpot will commence at 7:00 P.M. at the S.D. Marlin Club parking lot with our event sponsored raffles and awards presentation for the top 3 teams and optional winners.
Don’t miss out on this first annual event during yet another amazing West Coast fishing season. WON looks forward to growing this event for years to come!
