The Only Ladies Billfishing Event In Central America Announces Their Dates!
Pescadora Billfish Championship ~ February 21st – 23rd 2019.
Quepos, Costa Rica: “Some Women Fear The Fire, Others Simply Become It” is the tag line that the Pescadora Billfish Championship recently used on their billboard announcement in Costa Rica’s, Marina Pez Vela. Not only is this the only billifishing event specifically for women in Central America, but they are bringing experienced and non-experienced female anglers, of all nationalities, together to compete for the title of the World’s Top Lady Anglers!
Two top lady angler awards will be given… one to the female who reels in the most fish (hook & hand), and the other to the female that hooks and reels in her own fish (per IGFA rules) along with overall team awards. “There is no other billfishing tournament in the world with this new competitive ground-breaking format, it gives every skill level the ability to be competitive!” says Samantha Mumford, Tournament Director.
The Pescadora Billfish Championship has also teamed up with the Gray FishTag Research Program and is excited to announce the Pescadora Tagging Program. “Women from around the world have played a significant role in conservation, taking on tasks both large and small to help the planet,” says Samantha Mumford “this is a great way to educate and promote the tagging of fish which helps produce data that is desperately needed in the scientific community.”
Pescadora means “Lady Angler” in Spanish, so it’s a perfect fit.
The tournament will be held in Quepos, Costa Rica at Marina Pez Vela on February 21st-23rd, 2019. Join them for a fun, champagne filled weekend… catered to women, by women. Come be The Pescadora!! A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Seeds of Hope. This organization works in Costa Rica on the national and local level to combat sexual exploitation, drugs, violence and trafficking of minors.
