SAVE THE DATES, NOV. 6-9, 2019

The 2019 Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot is slated for Nov. 6-9, 2019 so book your boats, Hotel Tesoro rooms, timeshares and clear your calendar.

Western Outdoor News had a very successful tournament in the 20th year with 163 teams, up from 147 the previous year. But for the 21st run there will be two changes to the event in 2019.

One change will be a new spot for the 6 p.m. weigh-in deadline for boats. It will not be the inner harbor. Too dangerous as boats speed in to make the deadline, so the outer harbor will be the designated spot that will be videotaped and manned, just outside the jetty.

More details will be forthcoming, but the Wednesday through Saturday schedule will remain the same, and the same sites will be used for parties, check-in, and weigh-in. All sites are, of course, subject to change.

The second change is that the $1,000 wahoo/dorado optional is now replaced with separate $1,000 optionals. The 30-pound minimum on both is in effect the first day but if a qualifying dorado is not caught the first day the minimum will be lowered to 20 pounds. The 30-pound minimum for wahoo will remain in effect both days.

For any questions about the event to sign up and reserve your current team number, send in $100 to Western Outdoor News. Use the entry form. Full boat and team info is not needed to reserve your 2018 number.

We will reserve 2018 team numbers until March 1st, and then start assigning numbers in sequence --unless your 2018 number is still available or you request a number still available.

Your signup contact is Note on any entry or check that you are requesting a specific number.

See you all in November!
