Fishing Tournaments in Cabo

There are endless activities to do in Cabo San Lucas. If you enjoy deep-sea fishing, there are several fishing tournaments going on this month. If art and culture is your cup of tea, then you are in luck. Cabo is a small city with endless activities for everyone. The only problem is choosing which event you would like to do. Get on down here and let’s start planning!

Of course, fishing is BIG in Cabo and the Stars and Stripes tournament will be going on through July 30.  The striped marlins are the real stars of the event. In 1997 the Stars and Stripes tournament was started to help fund Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Orange County. The event is a combination of golfing, music and fishing.  Over the last few years, the event has grown into a much larger event to help benefit charities for children all based in the Southern California and Mexico areas. Get with Blue Sky Cabo for your BEST deal on fishing charters.  Jim is super easy to talk to and you will really enjoy the experience!!

Currently, the Stars & Stripes Tournament is now a recognized golf tournament, fishing tournament and music festival. This world-class charity, held yearly in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, joins deep sea fishing and golfing on Mexico’s premium courses with stunning accommodations and top musical entertainment. The immensely popular event has raised and donated more than $29 million to commendable youth charities over the course of its 22-year history. More than just a moneymaker, Stars & Stripes creates lasting memories for the organizations it helps, as well as those contributing in the event each year.
