Day Three of the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament Ends in Another Big Yellowfin Tuna Being Brought to the Scales.
14 October 2011 Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Tournament Report from picantesportfishing.com.
Day three of the 2011 Los Cabos Billfish Tournament was another beautiful Cabo fishing day. It was sunny and the temperatures were in the low 90’s Fahrenheit with a slight breeze out of the north west. The humidity was in the high 60’s. The water temperatures were in the mid to high 80’s Fahrenheit and the moon is 92% full.
Day three of the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament was not as exciting as the last couple of days.
Only one marlin, a Black Marlin was brought to the scales. It was landed by Bad Company and was hoped to be big enough to win the daily jackpot. When it hit the scales there was disappointment in the air as it only registered 276 pounds. It was short 24 pounds from winning the daily jackpot. Bad luck for the Bad Company team who had hoped to squeak by the minimum.
The daily winner in the Tuna division was a 135 pound Yellowfin Tuna caught by the Zhao. It looks like it will be the third place tuna, pending the announcement at tomorrow’s awards banquet.
The winning fish in the Wahoo division was a 39.3 pound fish caught by the Wildcatter. With all the focus being on the marlin, not many large gamefish were being caught except in the Yellowfin Tuna Division.
Tune in tomorrow for the official announcements of the winner after the 2011 Los Cabos Billfish Tournament Award Dinner. And stay tuned for the results of the Bisbee’s Los Cabos tournament which starts tomorrow. It is tournament time in Cabo and the fun keeps happening.
