Fishermen from throughout The Marianas are gearing up for the 2017 Rota Cliff Fishing Derby on July 28-30, 2017.  Organizers say competitors from Saipan, Tinian, and Guam are anticipated to join fishermen from Rota for the annual event.

The designated derby fishing sites are As Matmos, Pona Point and Mt. Taipingo. Registration is $25.  Derby orientation will be at 5 p.m. on July 28 at Guata Beach Park, followed by the start of the derby. The derby will end at 10 a.m. on the final day, followed by the awards banquet at 1 p.m.

“We’re pleased to again be preparing with the Rota Mayor’s Office to welcome fishermen for our cliff fishing derby later this month,” said Sandra Atalig, Rota Field Operations Supervisor at the Marianas Visitors Authority (MVA) office in Rota.
