Cozumel’s 43rd Annual Fishing Tournament will take place May 16 – 18th.  Boats from all over the Yucatan Peninsula, and as far away as Vera Cruz visit Cozumel to participate in the tournament.  This year’s inauguration dinner will take place at Chankanaab National Park on Friday evening, with the official fishing taking place on Saturday and Sunday.  The grand prize for this year’s event is a Mercedes Benz with trucks, cars and scooters awarded to the top 10 boats.

This is the second year the tournament has offered a “catch and release” option for billfish, in fact, there’s even a special prize for the boat that has the most releases.  Even if you’re not a participant, it’s worth heading down to Cozumel’s downtown pier, or Muelle Fiscal, to watch the boats weigh in their catch.  For more information on this year’s tournament, check out the official webpage.
