We welcome several new sponsors this year:

Siren Marine is the leader in self-contained monitoring, tracking and security systems, which are designed for boats ranging from a Bass Cat to a Viking. Siren will be awarding three MTC systems in Cabo teams with the largest Tuna, Wahoo and Dorado.

Siren Marine is spearheading the Connected Boat revolution with its MTC Boat Monitoring and Tracking system, making it even easier for boat owners to create their own Connected Boat system and access critical onboard information from a phone, tablet or computer.

Using a range of available wired and wireless sensors, this affordable and easy-to-install system keeps boaters on top of everything they need to know including bilge water level and bilge pump activity, battery voltage, temperature, shore power connection and more. Entry and motion sensors help protect against unauthorized boarding and theft of expensive MFDs and other electronics and gear. MTC even lets boaters remotely control onboard systems such as spreader lights, air conditioning, bait pumps and more. Offshore anglers can even begin the spool-up process on their gyro stabilization systems on their way down to the boat, so they are ready to go when they step aboard.

The basic MTC system retails for $599 and can be connected to literally dozens of available wireless or wired sensors, making it easy to tailor the ideal Connected Boat for every type and size vessel. A range of available subscription plans is offered beginning as low as $15/month.

-- Nomad lures is a new sponsor,  and will provide  4) $500 certificates. These will go to the largest tuna daily as well as the largest overall dorado and wahoo.

-- Chevron’s Techron will be awarding two $1,000 entries to the 2020 tournament to the teams that are entered in the Wahoo and Dorado optionals and catch the biggest fish over two days. Techron marine fuel additive cleans, restores, protects the entire fuel system (fuel injectors, carburetors, intake valves and combustion chambers); Reduces: rough idle, engine surge, hesitation, and spark plus fouling; and Improves: cold start performance, and fuel stability for up to one year.

--- Cinco Perros tequila, the highest triple distilled tequila on the market, is new to the Cabo Tuna Jackpot, and representatives will be brining down plenty to provide shots at the Captains Welcome Party Wednesday night, and will provide bottles for drawings at the nightly party, will be served on the Cabo Escape start boat charity charters both days of fishing, and will exhibit at the check-in to kick off the event.
