If you are in the ''fighting chair'', the sun on your back, rod tight in the socket and the line screaming while a huge fish pulls and jumps...then you're in Cabo San Lucas for sure, the Marlin Capital of the World. And more than likely you are at one of the many fishing tournaments in Los Cabos held throughout the year.
If you haven't been here yet, it is about time you do and experience the excitement of these tournaments. Prizes include substantial amounts of money whilst the encounter with nature is amazing, respectful and fulfilling. The most famous tournaments are the Bisbee Black and Blue Marlin Tournament held in October. And in November there is Los Cabos Billfish Annual Tournament ranking 15th amongbillfish tournaments around the world. It is also the first one to offer a prize in cash to the team who releases the most fish once they've been measured. By doing this the tournament helps preserve the abundance of marine life in the area.
