September 2022

$100,000 in prizes

Congratulations to all who spilled blood, sweat and tears—but mostly just had fun— this year. If you don’t want to miss it next year (and many emails and DMs showed us there’s a bunch of you), start planning and watch for early registration. Good things happen to people who PLAN ACCORDINGLY.

Megabite bites again. Showing their local knowledge and get’er’done attitude, Captain Nikiforuk (pictured celebrating above) and Team Megabite took another championship home…and a schwack of cash. Congratulations to everyone who fished this year. Lots of love to all da’ tuna fishermen and women. See you next year.

Thank you to Bedouin Soundclash

catchella

Catchella is an unforgettable night in Tofino. Bedouin Soundclash headlined in 2021. Jesse Roper did it in 2020. Who will headline Catchella next year?

Tofino’s legendary tuna tournament will be back for 2022. For the fifth year in a row, Race for The Blue will go way, way offshore in pursuit of one of the fastest—and tastiest—fish in the ocean. Oh yeah, and there will be parties. Many parties.

Pacific albacore tuna is a sustainable fishery located in B.C.’s rarely-visited offshore paradise. Join us for a week of action in September 2022 to discover the Pacific Ocean like you’ve never seen it. Read the rules and regulations.
