In a press conference, the organizing committee of the tournament, led by its president, Gilberto Uribe, announced the basis of the call and the prizes for this year.
The tournament, as it has been done for 11 years, will take place on November 9 and 10, whose essence is that anyone who likes fishing lives an experience like any elite tournament offers.
The cost of registration is $3,000 pesos per boat, in which, whether boat, panga or yacht, you can transport as much as your capacity allows. “There is no limit to the number of passengers or fishers,” explains the organizers.
The prizes, like every year, consist of 85% of the money collected from the inscriptions, and the remaining %15 for the payment of the logistics of the event, so it is expected that there is a bag to be distributed in excess of $200 thousand pesos will be distributed among the first places in the categories Dorado, Sailfish, Marlin, Tuna and Open Water.
The history of the tournament began when a group of fishermen and merchants from the dock decided to prove themselves and see who was the best. With an enrollment of 50 pesos per boat and a total of 20 boats, the 1st Los Muertos Beach Fishing Tournament kicked off.
The Tournament continued with such success, that in its 10th edition of 2017 there was the participation of 103 boats, including pangas and yachts.
“So everyone is invited to the Los Muertos Beach Fishing Tournament, which has become a tradition in Puerto Vallarta. Oh and do not forget the beach party during and at the end of the event, not to mention the delicious fish that are cooked for the public just taken from the boat,” said Gilberto Uribe.
