- The competition takes place on
Malpaso beach in the Magical Town of Sayulita on May 25-26.
The 14th Sayulita Surf Fishing Tournament in Riviera Nayarit is all set for May 25-26, 2019 under the aegis of the Nayarit Surf Fishing Club on Malpaso beach in the Magical Town of Sayulita.
The goal is to encourage the sport of surf fishing with an eco-conscience, which is why this competition follows “catch and release” rules that help the preservation of marine species.
Mario Alberto Real Bernal, president of the Nayarit Surf Fishing Club, announced the tournament is open to all ages and genders including kids, since this is a family event.
The activity begins on Saturday, May 25th with the arrival of participants from several states in the Mexican Republic and areas adjacent to Sayulita; an afternoon event is scheduled for them. The competition begins on Sunday, May 26th at 6:00 a.m. ending at 2:00 p.m.
This year the competition is focused on 10 species: sea bass, croaker fish, sawfish, mero fish, bull fish, roosterfish, skipjack fish, dorado fish and sting fish. The first five species must have a minimum weight of 2.3 pounds (1 kg) and the other five a minimum weight of 4.6 pounds (2 kg).
The per participant limit for catches is five (5), out of which the judges will choose the heaviest.
Fishing will be done from the beach with rod, reel, and lures (no bait).
Registration is $100.00 MXN on Saturday, May 25th for the traditional—albeit optional— “Warmup” from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and the accumulated total will be given to the winner. The cost for the first 100 people on Sunday, May 2th is $300.00 MXN and includes a dri-fit t-shirt.
