Cabo's waters teem with fish and it's always a great time to drop a line and go fishing in Cabo. October is a big month for fishing competitions. Here are the details about three big events.
Los Cabos Billfish Tournament
The billfish tournament takes place from October 15-19, 2017. There are three ways to enter: the base contest, a tuna/wahoo/dorado daily jackpot, and a daily billfish release competition. Your entry gets you t-shirts, a hat, and social events as well as the chance to compete for the biggest and most fish bragging rights. With luck, your catch will include marlin, anglers, billfish, tuna, and more. Last year the competitors in the release competition hooked nearly 40 fish each day, with the biggest well over 350 pounds.
Bisbee's Los Cabos Offshore
Stick around in Cabo after the billfish tournament; the Los Cabos Offshore runs from 10/19 to 10/22. You'll earn release points for each blue, black or striped marlin, or sailfish, spearfish, dolphin, and tuna. Be sure not to hook any babies; there are penalty points for small fish.
Bisbee's Black and Blue
The Black and Blue Marlin competition has three days of fishing, 10/25-27. Eligible species include black marlin, striped marlin, blue marlin, sailfish, swordfish, and spearfish. Come a few days early to participate in the Pub Crawl on 10/23. Then plan on spending your days out at sea, bringing your catch to the weigh station at end of day and tallying up your release points.
