Lake Chapala’s second annual National Bass Fishing Tournament is scheduled for February 2 and 3, headquartered again at the Nimue Marina Residence & Sport Club (formerly Club Náutico) in La Floresta.
This year, the tournament has openings in two categories, one for professional sports fishermen and another for amateurs anglers. The contest runs under a “catch and release” mode, with up to four team members allowed aboard each motor boat.
The top ranking pro competitors will split a purse of 250,000 pesos in prize money, with an award of 60,000 pesos going to the crew scoring the highest accumulated weight for five fish reeled in per day and an equal sum for capture of the heaviest single specimen. Cash awards for amateurs total 50,000 pesos, with 10,000 going to first-place winners.
