Day Two of the 2011 Bisbee Black and Blue Marlin Tournament Only Shows One Qualifying Big Marlin


20 October 2011 Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico Bisbee Black and Blue Tournament Report from Picantesportfishing.com

Day two of the Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin tournament turned out to be a good fishing day. More Billfish were caught today than yesterday. Today the spread was 18 Blue Marlin, 19 Striped Marlin and 3 Sailfish. Water temperatures are still holding in the mid 80’s Fahrenheit. So the marlin fishing will stay good for the rest of the tournament. Fewer Sailfish are being caught, but that is probably because the boats are targeting the Blue and Black Marlin which are what this tournament is all about. The fishermen are fishing hard, but no one has hooked into that really big fish to take it all.

The fish of the day was on the Pegasus, part of Picantesportfishing.com’s charter fleet with a 329 pound Blue Marlin. That fish put them into 3rd place overall. More tomorrow.

The Bisbee is traditionally a third day tournament, which means that more fish are usually brought to the scales on the final day. And that is what we expect. The fishermen are getting more of a feel on how to hook the big ones and tomorrow will probably produce some big fish and hopefully a winner.
