Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – Everything is ready for the fifth edition of the Surfcasting Vallarta Shore Fishing Tournament, which is set to take place from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm on Sunday, May 1.
The cost of registration is $250.00 pesos, which can be paid in cash at the Deportes Gutiérrez Rizo store located at Aquiles Serdan #350 in Colonia Emiliano Zapata, or via deposit to account number 5579-0701-2722-0534 at the closest OXXO or Banco Santander. The first 100 registrants will be given a free Surfcasting Vallarta 2022 t-shirt.
On the day of the tournament, all pre-registered participants must check in between 6:00-7:00 am at the Los Arcos del Malecón amphitheater, where they will pick up their tournament bracelet, which will be used to identify and locate participants.
Those who wish to participate, but did not pre-register, must wait until 7:30 am to register for the tournament, which begins at 7:00 am.
All tournament participants can fish along the shoreline from the Malecón Beach (in front of McDonald’s) down to Cuates y Cuetes on Playa de los Muertos (just north of the pier).
The novelty this year is that the tournament will not have categories, so all species, except for the manta ray and other protected or endangered fish, are eligible to win. The prizes for those who catch the three heaviest fish will be $15,000 pesos for first place, second place will take $7,000 pesos and third place will win $3,000.
It should be noted that with the ticket you can participate in the “La Rifa del Salado,” a raffle of fishing and beach products awarded by the sponsors of the tournament.
