Pelagic Triple Crown Of Fishing Tournament 2017 In Cabo San Lucas Is Upon Us

One thing you can count on when Pelagic Gear is involved with any fishing, boating, surfing and diving event or product is it will be innovative and full of passion for the sport. This tournament is no different. With the beauty and services that only Cabo San Lucas has to offer, the Triple Crown Tournament continues to draw in worldwide anglers, captains, crew, and spectators year after year. The tournament takes place from June 8th to 10th 2017, so if you are in Cabo during this time, head down to the marina to take in some of the excitement. The target species of the tournament are Striped Marlin, Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Dorado, and Wahoo which are a site to be seen.

One goal of the tournament is to be accessible with big payouts for those that have the passion for sportfishing. This year’s general entry is only $1,500 and all-in entry is $10,000 with cash awards up to $100,000 and by popular demand, there have been some high stakes jackpot options for the opportunity at large sums of CA$H!

The general tournament rules have four (4) divisions:

  • Billfish Release (striped marlin, blue marlin, black marlin, sailfish, swordfish, and spearfish)
  • Tuna Release
  • Dorado Release
  • Wahoo Release

Awards will be presented to teams and anglers for their performance in releasing the most aggregate billfish points and/or weighing the heaviest two-fish total of each gamefish species (tuna, wahoo, dorado) during the two-day tournament.
