CABO SAN LUCAS – Several teams have called an emailed and asked if it is too late to enter the 19th annual Western Outdoor News Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot. The answer is YES!

There is still time to enter and get in on the fun at Lands End Nov. 1-4. The basic entry fee is $1,000 for a team of 1 to 4 anglers, and that puts you into the event, all the parties, you get all the gifts (hat, soft cooler, Costa event shirt) and you are competing for about $75,000 if you catch the biggest tuna over two days. 

If you enter as a team in the dorado/wahoo optional for another $1,000, the biggest wahoo or dorado EACH DAY earns the team over $60,000. That’s $120,000 over two days. Then there are the $500 to $10,000 tuna optionals, all containing about the same amount of money. 

There are nightly drawings, and contests to liven up the four days. It’s fun, it’s exciting, and it’s in Cabo. If you can’t have fun in Cabo, then we suggest you knock down a few shots of tequila and come to your senses! 

This is the time of year when some charterboats become available because some teams unfortunately face unforeseen family or work situations. For example, Minerva Tackle and Sportfishing Charters recently had two cancellations and has saved the boats for Tuna Jackpot teams. Minerva can be contacted at 1(888) 480-7826, or through email at
