20th Annual Tourney Nov. 7-10, 2018

CABO SAN LUCAS -- Welcome to the website for the 20th annual Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot Tournament, slated for Nov. 7-10, as the tourney is always the first Wednesday to Saturday of November. The past year we had an incredible tourney, with nine money winners, 147 teams, $677,000 in prize money and 11 events for anglers and guests to participate in, and we raised $20,000 for Smilesinternationalfoundation.org.

As the year progresses, we will have more details of the tourney, and for right now, we are listing the schedule and sites of events as they unfolded in 2017, and while were pleased at how all the events went, there are always adjustments. As Cabo changes, and site access and costs rise, so must we adjust to keep the event fun and a class act. We hope you feel the same way.

The entry form this year is "editable" for the first time, so you may print your information on the computer and send it Lori@wonews.com via email or print it out and fax it. It will be much easier and more "readable" for us. Should have done this years ago!

Of course, if you want to keep your team number, you may do so in these next months with a $100 deposit toward your entry fee of $1,000, and it is payable by credit card as the entry fee. (There are deadlines for when we will no longer hold your number). Optionals must be paid by wire transfer or personal check, or bank checks. See deadlines for when personal checks are no longer accepted. It's about a month from the tourney, then wires are best used.

As far as rules, teams have string opinions about extending the weigh-in time by 30 to 60 minutes. That will be assessed in the next few months, but for now we are keeping the 4 p.m. lines out and 6 p.m. inner harbor deadlines intact. A committee at Western Outdoor News will be meeting to assess the possible changes, after 19 years.

The goal for us to host a fun, highly competitive event, and we wish the best of times in 2018.
