27th Annual Los Pescadores Billfish Tournament

September 23 - 24, 2016
Avalon, California

Join the Peskys and their friends for two days of camraderie, clowning and billfishing. A fall classic for more than a quarter century, the LPNTAINSLTBFD (Los Pescadores Next To Avalon Invitational Not So Light Tackle Billfish Derby) is famous equally for great fishing on the water and great times on the beach. Contested by some of SoCal's best marlineers, the "Pesky" has a relaxed feel you just won't find in other tournaments. Come see for yourself!!

Some Rules
  • $140 per angler (still a deal!).
  • Includes kickoff and awards banquet somewhere hereabouts. You're on your own after that!
  • Great goodie bucket filled with worthless junk.
  • Anyone caught acting too serious will be disqualified.
  • Bonus points awarded for correct placement of your bagel.
  • Finder of the Golden Tail will be lavished with many things - maybe even the bar tab.

Some More Rules
  • 40 mile fishing radius from Avalon.
  • 30 lb tackle for marlin, 80 lb tackle for swordfish (attaboys only for lighter tackle).
  • Not required to report position (you'll get grilled about it at the banquet).
  • Any fish still on after 4:03 pm on the last day don't count. You obviously forgot to lick the fish and should have used more pressure. Failure to comply interrupts the cocktail hour, and screws up our less-than-perfect tally system.
