La Cruz de Huancaxtle, in Riviera Nayarit, will be ground zero for the 4th Annual De La Cruz International Sport Fishing Tournament from September 28 through October 1. There are over three million MXN in prizes this year, including a pickup truck, seven cars and fishing gear, as well as high daily jackpots and cars for those who break the current Marlin and Sail Fish records.

The event features four categories: Sail Fish, Marlin, Dorado and Tuna. This year they expect to surpass the 52-boat record, as there are already over 40 boats registered. The registration cost per boat is $2,000 USD. Participants include anglers from 12 Mexican states, as well as the United States, Canada, and even one from Korea.

“This event has been organized with the best of intentions by Riviera Nayarit; by the Conventions and Visitors Bureau, represented by Marc Murphy; the National Fishing Institute (Inapesca); Marina Riviera Nayarit and all of the sponsors who are working with us,” stated Miguel Sierra Quintana, President of the Board of Directors for the Tepic Sport Fishing Club.

The first place winner in the Sail Fish category will take home an NP 300 truck. Second place will take home a March; third place will drive off in a new Tsuru, and fourth place takes home a new set of fishing gear. The winners of the Marlin, Dorado and Tuna categories will each take home a March for first places and fishing gear for second and third places. The cars are all 2017 models. Winners will also take home a commemorative trophy.

Special prizes this year are two Tsuru cars for those who break the 52.5kg record for Sail Fish and the 325kg record for Marlin. The jackpots this time around are very interesting, running from $100 to $200 USD per boat per day, which will generate plenty of economic stimuli.

There will also be a free Junior Tournament held on October 1 starting at 7 am for children ages 6 to 11, divided into three categories. There is a limit of 250 participants for this event.

The National Fishing Institute will be in charge of recording the measurements and weights of the catches in order to call out the winners. They will also use these and other parameters to generate research indicators and help maintain the natural balance of the species.
