Million’s available for Cabo area fishing tournaments
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is well known as the “Marlin Capital of the World”. And thanks to its big-money fishing tournaments – it’s also the one place that a single fish can turn you into a millionaire overnight!
Cabo’s Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Fishing Tournament is one of the most well known fishing contests, branded the “Richest Sport Fishing Tournament in the World” – Paying out millions of dollars annually – With it’s biggest payout to a single team in 2006 for $4,165,960!
Although the basic $5000 entrée fee for Bisbee Black and Blue may deter most people, there are also quite a few other lucrative but less expensive fishing tournaments around the Cabo San Lucas area. Beginning in mid June and running through November there are some exciting tournaments that are affordable enough for the average group of friends to band together and join the party, as well as get a chance at some big payouts.
There are a few different ways to win… There is the prize money for the first, second and third place biggest fish for the overall tournament. But there are also the “daily optionals” that are additional jackpots that allow you to participate in small and/or large “side bets” that pay out each day for the different levels of buy in.
What can you win? It all depends of the number of teams in the tournament, and how many are buying into the different levels of the daily optionals…
If you’re going to take a shot at the prize money, you’ll want to make sure that first and foremost you go with the best Cabo fishing charter company. Cabo Fishing Pros is absolutely one of the best sites to find and secure one of those charter boats. Locking in an experienced captain and crew with a proven track record is the key for both increased odds at reaching the tournament podium to hoist one of those oversized paychecks, as well as for just an overall good time.
One thing to remember, Cabo is a party town – Even if you don’t come away with a six figure payday, these Cabo fishing tournaments are all well designed and executed to deliver on a fun and memorable experience. With usually 2-3 days/nights of fishing and festivities, there is a constant party right after you get off the boat from each day of fishing – with amazing food and drinks each night, great people watching, prizes for side drawings, and swag bags from multiple sponsors.
