Next Year's Event: Nov. 7-11, 2012

Plan now for the 14th annual Cabo Tuna Jackpot. It's planned, as always, for the first Wednesday through Saturday of November, so this year the tourney will be staged AFTER Holloween and after the elections, Nov. 7-11. There will be NO major schedule changes, although check-in may be held at the new Wyndham Hotel pool now under construction, if feasible.

Also, a salsa party may be added, as well as a special charity champagne charter on the start boat Oceanus the second day for ladies who are not fishing. We're always looking for ways to have more fun.

The cost to enter will not change, $800 for a team of up to four anglers, plus jackpots. A new entry form will be created soon, so watch for it in the coming weeks.

If your company is interested in sponsoring the tournament next year and even attend the tourney, please contact WON's Chuck Buhagiar at

Pat McDonell is director of the Cabo Tuna Jackpot. He can be contacted at
