It was quite a week in Los Barriles with 5 tournaments being held between Palmas De Cortez and Playa Del Sol. The week started with the award ceremony for the 100th Fish With Me tournament. Jerry Hall from Fish With Me in Washington celebrated his 100th group trip to the East Cape. Jerry has been bringing group to the East Cape since 1984 two to four times per year. This year at Playa Del Sol the Fish With Me tournament had 27 Anglers. The group's fish totals were as follows:
1 Blue, 28 Stripe Marlin, 8 Sail Fish, 46 Dorado, 8 Yellow Fin Tuna. Congratulations to all the anglers and Jerry Hall for 100 great trips to the East Cape.
As soon as the Fish With Me group left Playa Del Sol, the 46th Annual Roosterfish tournament arrived at the hotel. This year's group came over from Punta Colorada because of the hotel being closed. The group quickly adapted to their new surroundings and a great time was had by all. I don't have the final numbers but I do know that day two of the tournament was epic with several boats landing 10-20 roosters in one day.
By the time the Roosterfish Tournament reached day two, the Keep'n It Reel crew was invading Hotel Palmas De Cortez. The annual Fish and Chips tournament which includes one day of fishing for the biggest dorado and tuna, one day of no limit Texas Holdem an the ever popular bikini contest. Over 100 participants from all parts of the U.S. attended this year's event. Team Fresh Catch took the $4,000 prize for biggest Tuna along with over $3,000 in Jackpot money with a very nice 83# yellowfin. Team El Loco I took down the Dorado category worth another $4,000 with a nice 24# dodo. Saturday's poker tournament lasted until 1:30am and Julian McCarthy of Ft. Lauderdale, FL out lasted more than 70 participants to take the Texas Holdem title.
The morning after the Texas Holdem game finished, the Tournament Anglers Association were gearing up for their first day of fishing out of Hotel Palmas De Cortez. This three day fishing tournament organized by Bill Evans is a catch and release tournament. Some anglers fish the Roosterfish Tournament and then move over to Palmas to fish the TAA tournament which always follows. This year's group of 25 anglers found some nice billfish, tuna and dorado during there three days of fishing.
Meanwhile over at Playa Del Sol, the Tuna Club was getting ready for their annual tuna tournament. This years group of 48 participants couldn't have timed it any better. The tuna started to arrive just days before they checked in to Playa Del Sol. Boats were coming in with anywhere from 5-15 tunas mostly football size.
As you can tell by this week's report it was a busy time in Los Barriles. We would like to thank everyone for a great time and especially those tournament organizers who spend so much time each year getting these events together. We hope to see everyone back again next year. That's it for this week amigos! Eddie Dalmau/Baja's Van Wormer Resorts
