isla-mujeres-1634196_1920Each Year, JJ’s Cantina presents one of the coolest celebrations in Mexico. The Angler of the Year contest rewards shore fishermen for their prowess on the beaches of Puerto Peñasco, Mexico. This event generally runs during the summer, about mid to end of June, and has several levels of prizes, including trophies and monetary prizes for your efforts in this great event. Come out and show us your stuff in this battle of the fishermen.

Along with the contest, JJ’s Cantina hosts a party for those competing in Angler of the Year along with those who are watching the event. You can enjoy great drinks, food, and music along with specials that run for the duration of the event. You may come for the contest, but you will definitely stay for the party!

The rules of the contest are simple. Fishing is only permitted on the shoreline and you can use any selection of rods, bait, or lures. The fish that are eligible for prizes include: black sea bass, dophon, flounder, grouper, leather, mackerel, corvina, pargo, pinto, pompano, red snapper, sardinero, sailfish, sheepshead, sea trout, shark, rabbitfish, trigger, yellow tail, and calico. Categories for prizes will vary and will be provided to each angler in advance.

Admission to the contest is only $10, proceeds of which will go to help the needy families of Puerto Peñasco. For more information on these celebrations in Mexico, please give us a call today!
