2nd Annual Riviera Nayarit Marlin and Tuna International Fishing Tournament (PromoVision)

Riviera Nayarit, the 160 kilometers of coastline in the State of Nayarit that stretches from Nuevo Vallarta to San Blas, is fast becoming known as one of the best fishing destinations in the Americas.

Boasting an abundance of marlin and tuna, as well as top game fish such as sailfish, mahi mahi, grouper, red snapper and wahoo, it is the perfect place for fishermen from around the world to test their fishing skills while competing in the Second Annual Riviera Nayarit Marlin and Tuna International Fishing Tournament.

Scheduled to be held at the new Marina Riviera Nayarit in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle from July 10-12, 2008, this year's tournament features a first place purse of $10,000 USD in each category for marlin and tuna catches.

With anglers from around the world vying to beat the Mexican Pacific Coast Marlin record of 710 pounds, set by Alejandro Herrera during the inaugural Riviera Nayarit Marlin and Tuna International Fishing Tournament in 2007, this year’s event promises some hot and heavy competition.

The warm, blue waters around Riviera Nayarit and the Bay of Banderas are fast becoming known for superb fishing. Two world record catches have been accomplished in the area (blue marlin and wahoo) and more are waiting, so start making plans now to join the hundreds of International anglers who will be competing to land trophy fish in the Pacific waters of the Riviera Nayarit this July.
