The 2014 Van Wormer Resorts Tournament is now in the books and it was an incredible event. There were 125 teams that participated in this years tournament and more than $90,000 is jackpot money was awarded to the winning teams. This years big winners were Patricia Morrison and Lavo Castro Rosa from right here in Los Barriles. The team fished on their super panga called Sayrita. They not only took home the 2014 Toyota Tacoma from Toyota of Los Cabos, they also won the $200 and $300 Jackpots worth just over $31,000 dollars. The winning dorado weighed in at 33.9lbs.
The second place team that took down the $500 and $1,000 jackpots was Pedro Mejia also from Los Barriles on the super panga Robert. Pedro took home more than $66,000 dollars and a return trip with one day of fishing. This is the first time that a team from Los Barriles has won the Dorado Shoot Out as well as all the Jackpots.
