The waters off Cabo San Lucas are teeming with fish, and the annual Billfish Tournament Oct 11-15 has a rich purse prize.
Every fisherman talks up the one that got away, but if you enter the Billfish Tournament and can hold onto your catch, you'll be able to back up your big talk with big prize awards that go to the top three teams--pounds add up to prize-winning points and a jackpot totaling $750,000.
Come with friends and enter as a team in one of three options: a base entry that covers three jackpots, an optional tuna/wahoo/dorado jackpot, and a daily billfish release jackpot. The entry fees, which start at $5,000 for base entry, go into the prize purse.
The event starts with a kickoff party on October 11; get a good night's sleep so you can head out on the water early the next couple of mornings. Lines go in at 7:30 am and come out at 4:30 pm for a solid day of battling the big ones--you might come up with a prize-winning blue marlin weighing over 600 pounds.
Points are tallied in preparation for the final awards banquet on October 15. Checks and trophies will be handed out!
If you're a more casual fisher, that doesn't mean you're shut out of the fun. Our concierge can arrange a day out on water in boats from 21 feet to 39 feet, with plenty of room for big fish. Stay out late and watch the sun set behind our famous arch. Your day on the water will be worthwhile whether your fish tales at the end of the day are true or not.
