Celebrate Father's Day at Rio Nosara’s Bass Fishing Tournament

By Irina Guzman

Prepare your line or fishing pole for the first bass fishing tournament in Rio Nosara, starting the weekend of Saturday, the 16th and Sunday, the 17th of June so that all fathers can enjoy the eco-fishing and have a happy Father’s Day. The competition will continue the following week, ending on the 23rd and 24th of June.

The fishing tournament is organized by the Foundation of Fishermen Protective of Nosara River Species (FUPPERNO), a newly formed group of local fishermen. Javier Hernandez Jiron, FUPPERNO president, explained that they have united to stop overfishing and irresponsible practices that affect fish resources and the balance of marine ecosystems.

The concept of the bass tournament is "catch and release." According to Hernandez, this is to improve and change the management of marine resources and raise awareness.

The registration fee is 12,000 colones ($24) and includes a t-shirt. Make sure you get a stamped receipt from the Foundation to present at the entrance station.

For the tournament, all participants will be in a line, which is a rule they must abide by. They should be courteous when someone else is reeling in a fish. Live bait is not allowed, and fishermen need to use fishing lures. For the benefit of the Foundation, the judges will not count injured fish. When fish other than bass are caught, the participant can decide whether to keep them or release them.

Qualification will be based on weight. The first place prize is 100,000 colones ($200), second place is  75,000 colones ($150) and third place is 50,000 colones ($100). The awards will be presented Sunday July 24th after 10 a.m. at Rio Nosara’s river mouth.

To register, you can go to Ciclo Ramírez bicycle shop in downtown Nosara, the Nosara gas station or the Fishing Paradise office in Guiones.
