Usually it is divided into two categories: high fishing and sea shore fishing. The prizes for the winners range from money in cash and new motorcycles up to a last model car. The samples of fish obtained during the tournament are cooked in varied ways with typical recipes for the region, to share with tourists who come to this event.
