Hola Amigas!
Unfortunately, we have had numerous cancellations for the 2nd Annual Ladies Only Tournament due to the current situation. The tournament organizers have decided to postpone the 2020 Tournament until July 23, 2021. The Tournament dates have been set for next year. Registration will be held on Thursday, July 22nd, with fishing days set for Friday, July 23rd and Saturday, July 24th.
A few of the teams will still be coming down to enjoy some of the best fishing we have seen in over 10 years. We hope that many of you will join them for a fantastic get away trip. I think we all need an escape and there is no better medicine than a few days in paradise!
If you would like to keep your reservation as is, you do not need to take any action. If for any reason you decide not to travel this year, please call our reservations office and let them know you would like to reschedule for next year.
Reservations 877-777-8862
We look forward to seeing everyone for the 2nd Annual Ladies Only Tournament next year!
Thank you,

RULES: This is a 2 day Fishing Tournament. The team with the most points at the end of the two days is the winner. There will be prizes for the top three teams. There will also be prizes for the top three boat crews. There will be optional side Jackpots of $200 & $300 for the heaviest Tuna over the two days. In the event no tuna is caught, Wahoo will be the first back up and then Dorado will be the second back up specie.  In case of a tie, the first fish weighed will take the prize. IN-WATER RELEASES PREFERRED on Billfish and Roosters. An IGFA “leader touch” verifies the catch of all billfish & roosters. All boats must wait for the flare start before setting off to go fishing on both days. All boats must return to the dock with a scorecard by 4:00pm each day. Any score card received after 4:00pm receives a zero for the day.  All tournament anglers must photograph all Billfish and Roosterfish in order to receive points. This will also serve as evidence in case any disputes arise. There is a 25lbs. minimum weight on all yellowfin tuna and a 15lbs. minimum weight on all other listed species. Any fish weighed that is under the assigned minimum weight will not score points. There will be a maximum of 15 fish per specie per day that will count towards your score. For example if you have 4 people on your team and you catch 20 tuna, only 15 will count on your score card that day. Any team or team member that kills a Billfish or Roosterfish during the 2 day tournament will be disqualified. Exceptions will be made if determined that the billfish died in the fight. Any billfish/roosterfish which comes to the boat alive must be released. Only women can be on the boat during the two day tournament with the exception of the Captain and Deckhand. There are no fishing boundaries and there is no limit to the amount of bait that can be purchased. Nothing can be passed from one boat to another after 7am except bait form the bait guys.  In the event of a tie, day one points will break any ties. If still tied, Second tie breaker will be a coin flip.  Any team that violates any rule can be disqualified. No refunds will be granted after the tournament starts. Any and all disputes will be settled by the tournament committee.
