The Fifth Jarretaderas Fishing Tournament will take place on Sunday, May 15 at the mouth of the Ameca River, from the area known as El Túnel (The Tunnel) to the beach across from Isla de los Pájaros.

There will be over $8,000 MX in prizes in kind for the first three places in this shore fishing tournament’s freestyle Category. Additional gifts and great fun for the entire family will also be available. The children’s category is free and it includes kids from five through 11 years of age, and the only prerequisite is an adult along with them. The Freestyle Category begins at 12 years of age with a registration cost of $80 MX pre-sale, and MX$100 on the day of the event.

“We’re very grateful for our sponsors—and this year we have more of them—and especially for the Riviera Nayarit CVB, which for the second year is backing us, as well as the Banderas Bay city council for all the facilities. We want to promote and emphasize the fact that this area is also great for sporting, tourism and family events,” said José Roberto Quezada, one of the organizers. Jarretaderas is located just south of Nuevo Vallarta, in Riviera Nayarit.

The inauguration will start around 7:30 a.m. This year the organizers expect approximately 100 children and 150 participating adults. The species approved for the competition are red snapper, sea bass and horse mackerel. Only those weighing more than 1 kg will count, the others will be thrown back in the water in favor of conservation.

It’s important to point out that each person must provide his or her own fishing equipment; however, the children who don’t have rods and reels will be provided with a plastic jug, fishing line, a lead weight and bait.

The event will include soccer and beach volleyball tournaments, as well as food and beverage stands and accessory vendors for those present. Participants from other regions including Tepic and Colima, has already been confirmed.

Tickets are on sale at Ferretería Express, Vallarta Fishing Center and Computec. For more information please call 322-120-0880.

Besides, it is a guide for us as residents, because we know from a good source the new things we can do. People take the magazine and in one place they find hotels, restaurants, galleries, real estate and other featured services.”

“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."
