Early Signup Incentive
20th annual tournament! Sign up now!

THE SPORTFISHERS OF CABO ARE OFF AND RUNNING in last year’s tourney that featured nearly $700,000 and payouts to a record NINE teams.


The summer season is on in Cabo, and tuna are biting. Not the jumbos of 100, 200 and 300 that come in time for the tourney season, but it’s great action. Early signups before  Sept. 7 are encouraged in the form of a drawing. So, as a reminder, it’s time to get in your WON/Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot entries for the Nov. 7-10 event, the 20th annual tournament.

You can sign up for the $1,000 entry, get your team number, and add jackpots later if you wish, at any time a week prior to the tourney. There is some incentive now for getting in your team entries as among teams that signed up by Sept. 7 there is a drawing for a full-day charter on the Jen Wren Sportfshing’s Vaquera, a $1,450 value. You’ll be fishing with Capt. Mark Rayor who is always in the hunt for big money at any tourney. Last year Team Vaquero won $132,800 on the 35-foot Cabo sportfisher Vaquera, taking four tuna optional jackpots with a 239 pounder.

If you have not fished the tourney, or have not participated the last few years, you need to come to Cabo for this one. It will be special, and a preview supplement to WON in a few weeks will have all the details on this landmark tourney that began in 1999, and is now the biggest jackpot team tournament in Mexico year after year. Get details at and the editable signup sheet is there.
