Offering a Grand Prize of USD $20K+, the Robert Ross Fishing Tournament is open for registration. The Tournament is scheduled for May 17th-19th at the newly expanded Marina Puerto Escondido along the Sea of Cortez in Loreto, Baja California Sur.
Fishing tournament competitors can try their hand at the fastest fish in the sea, the sailfish, as well as tuna, yellowtail, and dorado.
The event will include an Opening Ceremony, an Award Ceremony, and both daily and species-optional pots.
Named after record holding angler Robert Ross, the tournament will offer experienced sportfishers and boaters an exclusive fishing experience on the Sea of Cortez. Jacques Cousteau coined the Sea of Cortez “The Aquarium of the World” in 1987 due to its unmatched
variety of marine life.
Conveniently located between the Loreto International Airport and event sponsor Owen Perry’s Villa del Palmar Resort, Marina Puerto Escondido will offer fishing boats for rent and charter during the tournament.
Competitors can also enjoy golf, whale-watching, and other outdoor experiences, as well as the following new additions to Marina Puerto Escondido:
• 100+ world-class slips
• Fuel dock
• Expanded dry storage
• Newly remodeled facilities
• Fish fillet and weigh station
• Pepegina’s Pizza
Upcoming plans to enhance the marina community include additional restaurants, captains lounge, luxury condominiums, and a boutique hotel.
