Where is the best fishing in Mexico? A list of 25 tournaments was published by Pescando en el Caribe, the promoter group of the catch and release of sports fishing in the Mexican Caribbean, to begin to materialize as of April 12 of this year.

The resurgence between the 9th and 10th of August of the so-called International Tournament Copa Bahía Chetumal 2019 stands out, a contest that was previously held only as friends, but now becomes part of the serial of the Mexican Caribbean and with the plus of the internationalization.

The head of Pescando en el Caribe, Gamaliel Ek, revealed that this Chetumal competition, the only one of the calendar to be added this year, seeks to promote the southern zone of Quintana Roo under the responsible application of the capture and release.

Specifically, in this tournament there are two species considered, the shad and the esmedregal, just to preserve this type of specimens that, according to Gamaliel, are preferred by the fisherman.

Ek said that it is intended to attract fishermen not only from other states but from the neighboring country of Belize in a contest that will take place in inland water within the bay.

He said that he already works in coordination with the tourism directorate of Chetumal in an effort that will also involve the Secretariat of Tourism of Quintana Roo and other areas of the State Government.

Francisco Alberto Hernandez Cetina is the organizer of the fair, whose committee will grant a cup that will give identity to the novel raid, regardless of the prize that is won.

Next, the sports fishing agenda for this year.
