International field gathers for Mexican sportfish tourney

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.
