The Greatest Sport Fishing Competition You Have to See to Believe

As if you needed another reason to visit the gorgeous seaside city of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, this region is home to one of the most exciting fishing competitions in the world. Whether you're a fishing expert or your best catches consist of seaweed and tin cans, Bisbee's Black and Blue Marlin Jackpot Tournament is truly in a class of its own.

With over 100 boats filled with participants from across the globe, hundred-pound marlin catches, and millions of dollars up for grabs, this 40-year-old competition takes fishing contests to a new level.

This year, the event kicks off on Tuesday, October 24. That evening, the teams will register, and opening ceremonies will precede the festivities before the actual contest commences the next morning. A shotgun blast signaling the start of the action will ring out at 8 a.m.

Between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, the boats will be out, and the fishers will be hard at work. Then between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. on both days, contestants will haul their largest catches to the official weigh station located near the Puerto Paraiso Mall, a popular local shopping center.

On Saturday night, the competition will conclude with an awards ceremony at the A.P.I. Cruise Ship Pier, where all tournament contestants are welcome to attend.

You don't need to enter the contest in order to enjoy Cabo San Lucas. Simply being there surrounded by the atmosphere and energy of the competition can leave spectators awestruck. The thrill of competitive fishing at its finest is sure to stay with you and may even inspire you to up your game once you get home.

You may also decide to rent your own boat with family or friends and attempt to catch a tuna or marlin yourselves. With plenty of charter companies to choose from, you can snag yourself a beauty any month of the year. Just imagine how impressed everyone will be when they see you holding up a large, delicious-looking creature of the deep.

Fishing aside, Cabo is loaded with unique attractions. After watching expert fishers face off in fierce competition, you may want to check out some of the city's first-rate galleries, museums, and restaurants. Equally appealing are Cabo's beaches and crystal-clear waters, which are ideal for surfing, snorkeling, or swimming.

Once you arrive, you'll need a place to stay that matches the grandeur of the Bisbee's Tournament. Enter Sirena del Mar by Welk Resorts in Cabo San Lucas. Its rooms are spacious and beautiful, and the seven acres of seaside cliffs offer stunning panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez. After cheering on your fishing heroes, return to your serene penthouse or villa, close your eyes, and dream of marlins streaking across the sea just waiting to be caught.
