The 55th Annual Sportfishing Tournament in San Blas is back in play from June 17-21 with the slogan “55 Years of Big Time Fishing,” organized by the Tepic Sportfishing Club.
The Historic Port of San Blas will welcome 50 teams with anglers from 15 states within the Mexican Republic as well as from beyond the borders. This is why the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau’s Groups and Events department is sponsoring this competition, which serves to position the Destination on both a national and an international level.
The boats will set sail in search of the largest Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi and Marlin in the area, reeling in top honors and valuable prizes. There are also two special awards available, one for whoever breaks the record in the Sailfish category and the other is a raffle for a new car.
The purse includes nine automobiles, as well as boat motors, cash prizes, professional fishing equipment and more.
6th Annual Children’s Sportfishing Tournament
The 6th Annual Children’s Sportfishing Tournament will also take place on Sunday, June 21st for boys and girls from 5 to 11 years of age; they will be divided into three categories. The fishing starts at the Marina FONATUR promptly at 7:30 a.m. so the kids can enjoy Father’s Day with their dads.
This tournament is free of charge, as is the fishing gear for children who don’t own a set. There will also be games, bouncy houses, food, music and fun hosts to liven up this family festival.
Prizes for the children include bicycles, tablets and fishing rods in order to incentivize sport fishing in the younger generations.
