9th Intl Marlin & Tuna Sport Fishing Tournament – Bahia de Banderas, July 24-25

article-image

Attention fishing fans! Riviera Nayarit is an excellent destination for sport fishing all year round, and the 9th International Marlin & Tuna Sport Fishing Tournament is around the corner!

This July 24 & 25, experienced and amateur fishermen will join together at the Paradise Village Marina in Nuevo Vallarta to participate in this annual event.

Participants can register in teams of up to four people per boat, and will be able to use all kind of rods and reels (as long as they are not electronic) — and, teams can use lines of up to 130 lbs and simple hooks.

The Sailfish category will be under a catch-and-release format, and for that reason each team must register their catch with a camera that shows date and time of the capture before releasing the fish. The winning team will be the one with most number of captures.
The winners of the rest of the categories will be determined based on the weight of the captured specimens.
 Fishermen interested in participating can register online here.
