Tournament Anglers' Association's 35th Annual Eastcape Billfish Tournament
Tournament Anglers' Association's 35th Annual Eastcape Billfish Tournament is set to kick off on June 10th. 16 anglers will assemble at Van Wormer Resorts' Hotel Playa del Sol in Los Barriles, Baja California Sur, for a three-day competition. The targeted species for this catch-and-release tournament are striped marlin and sailfish. Blue marlin and broadbill swordfish are occasionally released as well, depending primarily on the water temperatures in the Sea of Cortez. Gamefish species, yellow-fin tuna, dorado, and wahoo, are also included in Tournament scoring.
Tournament Anglers' Association (TAA) is a International Game Fish Association (IGFA) member club dedicated to ethical fishing and friendly competition, Founded in the mid-19890s by three IGFA International Representatives, TAA has earnestly and continuously supported conservation. Through the promotion of catch-and-release tournaments and the introduction of circle-hook fishing in Baja, TAA has sought to preserve the fish populations not only for sport fishing, but also as an economic resource for the wonderful citizens of the Baja California peninsula.
TAA's anglers are looking forward to another great year on the calm waters of the Sea of Cortez. The boats used in the Tournament are all from the Van Wormer's fleet. While the anglers compete for trophies, fishing equipment, and recognition, the crews compete for daily cash prizes (from the tournament entry fees). In keeping with the spirit of competition and conservation, TAA brings a level of commitment to the hotel, the crews and the Town of Los Barriles that is appreciated by all.
