The following press release is courtesy of the Los Cabos (Mexico) Billfish Tournament:
A fleet of 37 boats roared offshore this morning, signaling the start of three days of fishing in the 18th annual Los Cabos Billfish Tournament. Good fishing over the last several weeks for wahoo, dorado and blue marlin foreshadow some excellent catches for anglers participating in the event.
By mid-afternoon, the predicted hauls began to materialize as several crews called in boated fish, including a double header. Blue marlin releases outpaced the striped marlin bite, which is a bit unusual, but a welcome turn of events for anglers vying for the blues.
The Los Cabos Billfish Tournament offers up many ways for participants to win, from billfish release prizes to largest tuna, dolphin and wahoo awards, as well as biggest blue, black and striped marlin payouts. This year, anglers are competing for more than $475,000 in cash and prizes.
Sponsored in large part by the Los Cabos Tourism Board in an effort to highlight the area’s exceptional fishery, the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament represents one of the longest running big-game tournaments on the Baja California Peninsula.
