What’s new is that the tournament is part of the 2012 Sea of Cortés Circuit, which is promoting recreational fishing throughout the Sea of Cortés and includes support from the four states of Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, and Sonora.  The grand prize for the Sea of Cortés Circuit will be presented during its final phase of the year in Los Cabos, with prizes totaling $400,000 USD!

fishing-tourney-_15-620x413 5th Deep Sea Fishing Tournament Day 1With the port serving as background, the official launch of the 5th Annual Deep Sea Fishing Tournament in Puerto Peñasco took place at 6 a.m. on Saturday morning. Participants had until 6 p.m. that day to bring in their catch. Early on, those aboard “Tiburon” including local businessman/restauranteur Dave Roberts and friends came in for a first stop after having already caught 8 massive Groupers – the heaviest of these coming in at 73.1 lbs.  Hours later, without any reports trickling in and with anticipation growing, concern began to spread among those of us waiting as at 5:30 p.m. no boats could be seen on their way in. But then, at 5:45 p.m. there was excitement at seeing various boats quickly making their way back to the port. In those 15 minutes, the boats “Caballo del Mar,” “Katrina,” “Tiburon,” and “Just Hammered” tied up at the docks to unload and weigh their catch of the day, all in search of reeling in top spots.

The excitement continues today, Sunday, when all boats must be back by 4 p.m. for the final weigh-in and to define who the winners will be in each of the 3 categories. This will be followed up with a fun get together on the patio of Terramar Restaurant just next to the docks, starting at 3 p.m.  For more information and pictures from the past years’ Deep Sea Tournaments here in Puerto Peñasco, visit:  Puerto Peñasco Cup 2012
