The Free Angler Entry Los Cabos Big Game Charter Boat Classic, presented by the Los Cabos Tourism Board, registered 340 anglers from all over the world as the Nov. 18-21 event came to a close.

Participants from England, Denmark, Sweden, Australia, Canada, Ireland, Mexico and 25 states in the United States fished on Los Cabos charter boats in hopes of winning some of the $40,000 in cash, plus trophies and prizes.

A total of 122 charter boats from the East Cape, San Jose and Cabo San Lucas took advantage of a great bite, putting the anglers on some very impressive catches. Several triple-digit tuna hit the scales, along with quality wahoo and dorado.

Many of the anglers experienced their first billfish release, catch of a lifetime or a tournament-placing fish.

The tournament awarded $10,000 a day on each of the four fishing days, with 34 anglers sharing the $40,000 in purse, plus King Salifish Mounts trophies. Four top female anglers also received trophies and prizes.
