The Stars and Stripes Charity Tournament, one of the most unique and successful charity events honoring “It’s all about the Kids,” celebrated its 25th anniversary with nearly a thousand attendees from around the world. Participants traveled to Cabo to help raise funds for those less fortunate and enjoy the many things the area offers.
Over 50 teams participated in the two-day Sportfishing Tournament. It began with a spectacular parachute jump by U.S. Veteran and paraplegic Dana Bowman as he floated toward the beach with the flags of the United States and Mexico fluttering beneath his chute.
Quite a few fish were released in the 20 to 50-pound class. The beach off La Capilla is a hot spot, and Rincon Bay has been producing some big roosters. We are getting Tube Mackerel (Chili Willys), a deadly bait for the roosters!

Merry Christmas from deep in the hinterlands of Baja Sur! The word “Epic” is overused in fly fishing, but this catch is epic in every way for Daniel Kim, who traveled from New York City for the opportunity to experience a winter grande from the beach. It’s as good as it gets!…Lance Peterson
What a day for Pisces 66′ Viking Friday Bank Angler Malia Evans told us about her day, “We had three generations of family aboard. We caught seven dorado and one marlin released! Plus, one of the dorado had a baby turtle in its mouth when we caught it. We were able to revive the baby turtle and release it, and it swam off strong.”
