Dreams come true on the fourth and final day of fishing
The Los Cabos Big Game Charter Boat Classic, the Baja’s free tournament for visiting anglers chartering a boat, continued to make dreams come true on the fourth and final day of fishing. Over the four days of competition over 500 registered anglers from all over the world fished on over 100 charter boats. The unique format allows anglers to weigh fish in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose with all vying for the $40,000 in purse plus King Sailfish Mount trophies. Offshore fishing in Los Cabos is thrilling by itself but when you get to experience an international competition with a chance to win thousands of dollars the experience is certainly heightened.
In addition to the tuna, wahoo and dorado awards anglers were treated to a good billfish bite releasing many striped marlin, a few blue marlin, sailfish and spearfish. All anglers who email pictures of their billfish releases by November 30th will have a chance to win great prizes including Yeti tumblers, Lucas Oil Slick Mist kits, Maui Jim sunglasses and Carey Chen artwork.
