Seventeen years ago, Palmas de Cortez established the Dorado Shootout. Over the years, it has become one of the largest fishing tournaments in Southern Baja, with an average turnout of 130 teams each year. However, this year the event set a new attendance record of 147 Teams that plunked down their base entry fee of $600 to compete for the $323,000 cash payout, in addition to a SUV valued at $47,000, plus Jackpots, clothing, etc. which drives up the total winnings to nearly ONE-HALF MILLION DOLLARS – one of the largest payouts in any Dorado Tournament in the world.

Overshadowing the recent Marina Puerto Escondido Tournament held in May that awarded Team “Pink Bullet” $232, 150.00 for their 42.3-pound dorado.
