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.

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”
