Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is known as the 'Marlin Capital of the World'. And thanks to its big-money fishing tournaments, it's also the one place that a single fish can turn someone into a millionaire overnight. Bisbee's Black & Blue Fishing Tournament in Cabo is one of the best-known fishing competitions, having been branded as the 'Richest Sport Fishing Tournament in the World'. This is because it pays out millions of dollars annually and its biggest payout to a single team was $4,165,960 in 2006.
Meanwhile, the basic $5,000 entry fee for Bisbee Black and Blue may discourage most people, but there are also quite a few other lucrative but less expensive fishing tournaments around the Cabo San Lucas area. Beginning in mid June and running through November there are some exciting tournaments that are affordable enough for the average group of friends to band together and join the party, as well as get a chance to win some big payouts. These, and other tournaments, are all listed on Cabofishingpros.com.
There are quite a number of ways to win. There is the prize money for the first, second and third places for catching the biggest fish for the overall tournament, and there are also the 'daily optionals, which are additional jackpots that allow people to participate in small and/or large 'side bets' that pay out each day for the different levels of buy in. The exact prizes will depend on the number of teams in the tournament, and how many are buying into the different levels of the daily optionals.
For those who want to take a shot at the prize money, they must make sure that they go with an experienced and trusted Cabo fishing charter company. There are quite a few options available of which some are good, although some are not so good. Locking in a reputable charter boat for a tournament is the key for both increased odds at winning one of those oversized paychecks, as well as for an overall good time.
