It’s that time of year again - Cabo San Lucas fishing tournament season! When summer hits, the fish are jumping, and boats are ready to sail the sea. During these Cabo events, fishermen will be hauling in massive catches, and grills will be loaded with juicy fillets. With multiple competitions during the Cabos tournament season, there’s a good chance you can attend one if you’re traveling to Cabo this summer. Whether you’re an avid sportsman looking for competition or an avid seafood eater, head to the shores of Los Cabos Mexico for these exciting upcoming fishing tournaments.
The Cabos tournament season kicks off with the East Cape Dorado Shoot Out on July 20, a single day to catch the heaviest dorado, tuna, or wahoo. This annual event is one of the biggest Cabo events because of its low entry fee and heavy payout. The entry fee for the Cabo fishing tournament 2019 is only $500 per team, but if it’s anything like last year, the jackpots will total over $126,000, and the winner will walk away with a brand new truck. Once the fish have all been caught, the Cabo San Lucas fishing tournament keeps rocking with dinner, music, and $30,000 worth of prizes raffled off that night.
The Cabos tournament season continues by giving back during the Stars & Stripes charity tournament from June 27 to 30, with proceeds going towards Big Brothers Big Sisters, Miracles for Kids, Building Baja’s Future, and other organizations. During the Cabo fishing tournament 2019, boats will be hauling in dorado, wahoo, tuna, sailfish, swordfish, black marlin, and blue marlin. However, there’s more to this tournament than fishing. The event includes golf, theme dinners, concerts, and both live and silent auctions. This year, rock-and-roll legend Bret Michaels will be performing for the final event, which will make it one of the biggest Los Cabos events of the season. To register, sign up before May 15.
Perhaps the biggest and oldest Cabo San Lucas fishing tournament is Brisbee's East Cape Off Shore Tournament from August 1-4. For over 30 years, Bisbee’s Black & Blue Tournaments have been a staple on the Cabo events calendar with payouts topping $4 million! Like all other Los Cabos events, this tournament wouldn’t be complete without a fabulous kickoff bash and a celebratory awards night in the end to honor all competitors. In between these parties, you can hit the waves on the hunt or stay ashore to watch fishermen haul in and weigh massive fish on the beaches of Los Cabos Mexico.
Each Cabo fishing tournament 2019 will offer during the upcoming season is sure to be a spectacular event with big catches and even bigger prizes. They’re a chance for local and international fishermen to compete at sea and show off the amazing bounty of the ocean. Competing in these Los Cabos events will make your vacation incredibly memorable, but even going to watch and join in the parties will add something new to your time in Los Cabos Mexico.
