Los Cabos Sport Fishing Events
Legendary writer Ernest Hemingway traveled to the Baja California Sur to witness and experience firsthand the incredible bounty of sport fishing opportunity available. That should be enough for any sport fisherman to come to sample the waters. There’s certainly no lack of competition to land the big one, as many of the world’s top sportfishing events and fishing tournaments occur in the Cabo San Lucas port. Top fishing teams from around the world are pitted against each other to raise the most marlin, tuna and dorado species.
Los Cabos hosts six prominent offshore tournaments, including the Stars & Stripes Tournament in June, Los Cabos Billfish Tournament in October, Cabo Tuna Jackpot in November, and the three local Bisbee’s circuit tournaments – the Bisbee’s East Cape, Los Cabos Offshore and the Bisbee’s Black & Blue. The granddaddy of them all – Bisbee’s Black and Blue Tournament – takes place in Los Cabos every October and is known as the richest fishing tournament in the world, with payouts exceeding 4 million dollars for the largest black, blue and striped marlin species. Dockside parties in and throughout the region are legendary. Be prepared for a rip-roaring time where the fun and drinks last well into the night hours.
