- Last year the tournament welcomed 600 children; this year, the Destination expects at least 800 kids ready to enjoy this friendly tournament held at the Marina Riviera Nayarit. The Las Islitas beach in San Blas will host the 2nd Annual Children’s Surf Fishing Tournament.
The Marina Riviera Nayarit in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau is ready to welcome the 2nd Annual Riviera Nayarit Children’s Fishing Tournament on Saturday April, 2016, with the full support of the Banderas Bay Fishing Club.
Approximately 800 kids will be welcomed from 8 a.m. through 11 a.m.—a big jump from the 600 welcomed last year—to take advantage of this free friendly competition, which encourages sport fishing and environmental awareness in a family atmosphere.
The kids will fish off the pier, with the only requirement being that each one be accompanied by an adult. All children will received a free commemorative t-shirt, a ball, a bag of candy, food and beverage.
The competition is divided into two categories: one from 2 to 6 years of age and the second from 7 to 12 years of age. The top 10 catches will enjoy special prizes on behalf of the sponsors, including bicycles, board games, fishing gear and more.
The fish will be returned to the water once they’re weighed to encourage conservation and environmental awareness. The Riviera Nayarit CVB would like to thank the municipal and state authorities, a well as the staff at the Marina Riviera Nayarit for their help.
2nd Annual Children’s Surf Fishing Tournament
The 2nd Annual Children’s Shore Fishing Tournament will take place on the Las Islitas beach in San Blas. This is a free event and is organized by the Tepic Surf Fishing Club.
This event takes place on Sunday, May 1st, 2016, and there will be only one category for children from 4 through 14 years of age. The fishermen will use rod, reel and bait.
Prizes have already been secured for the top four entries, but as more sponsors become available that could extend to the top seven. Winners will be defined by the weight of their catches.
