East Cape Fishing Tournaments

1st-5th, Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore Tournament Bisbee’s generation of fishing tournaments have been a staple in the Baja Peninsula for over 30 years. Bob Bisbee created the world famous Black & Blue Marlin Tournament in 1981, with six teams vying for a $10,000 USD purse. Today, the tournament in Cabo San Lucas boasts more than 150 teams shooting for millions of dollars in prize money. The largest payout to date was in 2006 to the tune of $4,165,960 USD. This remains to be the largest payout in sport fishing history. In 2000, the East Cape Offshore Tournament in Buenavista was born. Buenavista is located on the east coast of the Baja California Sur peninsula. Unlike its predecessor, this tournament includes dorado and tuna as well as marlin. The Bisbee’s East Cape is described as ‘Cabo fishing as it used to be’ because of its laid back nature. Due to the popularity of this tournament’s format, a third event was created in 2002—the Los Cabos Offshore Tournament. This takes place just days before the Black & Blue and has earned the nickname ‘Little Bisbee’s’. It has developed into a social event where competitive fishermen get to relax and swap stories before the pressure of the ‘Big Show’ begins. The Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore Tournament is the first of the Bisbee’s series of tournaments and will kick off in Buenavista August 2-5, with registration taking place August 1.

15th, Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The Catholic Church adopted this date as a Holy Day of Obligation to commemorate the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. August 15 was chosen to celebrate the belief that God assumed the Virgin Mary into Heaven following her death. Processions will begin in the morning (around 10 a.m.) with floats and musical bands celebrating the Virgin Mary’s life. Locals and tourists typically line the streets to celebrate with parade participants.]]>
