Richest WON Tuna Jackpot Underway


On the Verge of Tuna Jackpot Glory
WON Tuna Jackpot Poised For Epic Fishing

 












Sure looks like there is going to be some Wicked Tuna fishing here in Cabo for the 21st running of the WON Cabo Tuna Jackpot tournament! After early checkin it appears we will be well over 150 boats (estimated). Every day has brought several 200-pound-plus to the docks. The weighin could get crazy, especially with the new separate jackpots for both wahoo and dorado.

An annual tradition has been the pre-tourney tagging expedition put on by Bill and Pamela Dobbelear of Gray's Fish Tag and Tracy Ehrenberg of Pisces Sportfishing. 

Along for the ride (there were four boats total) were Dave and Nancy Marciano of Wicked Tuna, who both caught their first striped marlin fishing with the Dobbelears and Tracy on the Tag Me. They were just around the corner of the Cape and the spot was loaded with boats that cooperated with each other to get out of the way of hookups. In fact, during this double they handed off Nancy's rod to another boat which then took the line around its bow and handed the fish back!

They managed to tag nine stripers, including two with the $5000 satellite tags that the new $20,000 High Roller Daily Jackpot will help to fund for future efforts for multiple species, including tuna. Bill brought some great watermen with him from Costa Rica and they actually jumped in the water to revive the marlin tagged with the expensive satellite beacons. 













Afterwards Tracy and Marco Ehrenberg hosted a reception for the many great sponsors who make the WON Tuna Jackpot possible. Those same folks are busy right now setting up their booths with plenty of swag for the checkin that takes places in just a few hours. 

Look for more information and updates here and on the Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot and WON Facebook pages.
