Contests and Prizes liven up the Jackpot


Right off the bat, when you sign up for the 20th annual  WON Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot as a team, you are a winner of sorts because all four anglers get a wristband at check-in and with that, entry into three drawings. That wristband gets you into two dinner parties, drawings for a lot of free tackle, a commemorative Baja Cantina–sponsored Cabo Tuna Jackpot bag, a Costa event L/S shirt, and official event hat.


When you check in, you get all that and then you start down the line of sponsors under the tents who hand you Mustad hook packs, wire leaders from Hi-Seas, Costa T-shirts, official flags, Seaguar fluorocarbon, Frogg Toggs neck coolies, Terrafin color satellite maps and more.

Everyone is entered in a variety of contests that liven up the distribution of sponsors gifts, like Calstar rods, Costa sunglasses,  Accurate reels and more.  Sure, we have drawings, but those could go on for a long long time at the events, so this is more fun and the sponsors really get into it. Here they are:

— Kingfisher Guess The Winning Fish Weight Contest. The winner gets a trip for one person worth $2,400 to Kingfisher Lodge in Alaska. Announced at the Friday Fiesta at Maria Corona restaurant. If there is a tie on the guesses, it’s a coin flip, or a drawing if more than two who guess correctly. If no one picks the exact weight, the closest weight will win.

— Fishworks/Baja Cantina Best Dressed/Logo Contest: The whole team wins free meals at BC in 2018, and a $125 Fishworks Clothing gift certificate for every member of the team. We'll be checking you all out at check-in and on the boats. Winner will be announced at Baja Cantina's Fiesta at their fabulous Maria Corona's restaurant.


— $10,000 Grand Prize Charity Drawing: Four of everything the sponsors have provided (Plano Tackle boxes, Tesoro hotel certificates(4), Costa sunglasses, Mustad hooks, Seaguar leader, Accurate reels, Calstar rods, Yummy Lures, Hi-Seas wire and crimping sets… it’s a lot…Tickets bought all four days cost $5 each or $5 for 20.

— The National Rental Car Sticker Contest.The National Rental Car folks have great deals on rentals for tourney anglers, and they have a sticker for the boats. At the start boat, when you show your number and the National Tuna Jackpot sticker is on the boat, you are in a drawing for a free rental car package from National.


— Show Us Your Costas! At boat checks before the starts, we see the most creative ...Dave Bulthuis of Costa picks the winning team that gets four pairs of sunglasses.

— Awards dinner Charity Silent Auction. More great deals for you to bid on, all donated by sponsors and local Cabo vendors. Two of the items are a trip to Alaska and Jon Pettey gold tuna pendant.

See you Nov. 7-10. And good luck fishing and in the contests.
