The Mayor, Arturo Dávalos Peña, was present at the 10th Los Muertos Beach Fishing Tournament, a contest that grows with great strides and that on this occasion had 103 participating boats.

Early Saturday, the municipal president was accompanied on the pier of Los Muertos by the president of the Los Muertos Beach Fishing Club, Gilberto Uribe González, the members of the organizing committee Mauricio Escontria, Sergio Gutiérrez and Víctor Flores, as well as representatives from the private sector and in the presence of personnel from the Harbor Master's Office.

"This tournament is growing year after year, we have supported it for years, we see many 'patasaladas' and people are already joining us from abroad, who come with their family to enjoy this wonderful scenery, this port that we love so much. The event is economic, everyone has fun and that is why we are going to continue supporting this event," said the mayor.

Last year 85 boats participated and the objective of the tournament is the promotion of sport fishing and the economic and tourist boost of the Romantic Zone and the beach of Los Muertos. The fish that are presented to the judges are cooked for the attending people as part of the party and they also deliver approximately 250 thousand pesos in prizes.

This year, the stellar category of the Dorado fish (mahi mahi) was won by the Mad Mahi team of Fernando Martínez de la Garza with a catch of 15 kilos 100 grams, enough to win a prize of 107,300 pesos. In Pez Vela, the champion team was the boat "Una más" which took home 32 thousand 193 pesos as a prize.

The best Marlin was achieved by Víctor Manuel Santana, of 63 kilos 800 grams, and also took 32 thousand 193 pesos. Finally in the Open Water category, Fernando Peñalba achieved the first place with an catch of 15 kilos 600 grams. His prize was 21 thousand 460 pesos.

At the award ceremony were present the General Secretary of the City Council, Víctor Bernal Vargas, with the representation of the mayor; the director of Economic Development, Gustavo Fong, and the director of the municipal DIF, David de la Rosa, who received a donation of approximately 60 kilos of fish for the Integral Assistance Center for Older Adults (CAIAM).
