80 boats are expected to participate in the San Blas Fishing Tournament in Riviera Nayarit


The 52° International Sport Fishing Tournament in San Blas will assemble approximately 320 enthusiasts, who will vie to catch the largest sailfish, marlin and dorado

Over 300 sport-fishing enthusiasts will assemble in Riviera Nayarit to compete aboard 80 boats on the 52nd International Sport Fishing Tournament in San Blas, according to estimates by the Tepic Sport Fishing Club.
The tournament, which will take place between May 30 and June 3, was formally introduced last May 7 in a press conference. 

“This is the best tournament in the Mexican Pacific, not only because of the prizes or the number of participating boats, but also because of the ambiance that is enjoyed in San Blas, which is a token of the friendliness of the services that can be found in Riviera Nayarit”, said Carlos Menchaca Díaz del Guante, president of the Tepic Sport Fishing Club.

Prizes will include cars for the best sailfish, marlin, and dorado catches. The official opening ceremony will take place on March, May 30 at the Touristic Marina of San Blas. Fishing will begin on Thursday 31 at 6:00 and the starting shotgun will sound after the National Anthem is played.

Activities will be suspended on Friday, June 1 for the Official Lunch, and will resume on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3, when sportsmen will start looking for the big fish at 4:00 am. Weighing will stop at 18:00 on Thursday and Saturday, and at 17:00 on Sunday, as the awards ceremony will begin at 18:00.

Menchaca Díaz del Guante expressed his gratitude to supporting authorities and participating sponsors as their participation was invaluable to raise the attractive prizes offered by this competition. “Riviera Nayarit, Mexico’s Pacific Treasure, has one of the most attractive offers for sport fishing enthusiasts. Wahoo, sailfish, dorado, tuna, three different species of marlin, sawfish, and snapper, and many others can be found in our waters, and this diversity results in a great fishing experience year-round. This is why the combined efforts of the State Government, the Municipal Governments, the CVB of Riviera Nayarit and the private sector have made it one of the preferred destinations for fishermen”, concluded Menchaca.
