21 October 2011 Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico Bisbee Black and Blue Tournament Report from Picantesportfishing.com
Day three of the 2011 Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin Tournament has been another interesting fishing day. The first fish of the day was a 313 Blue Marlin brought in by the El Lobo. It was early in the day and the crowd wasn’t very big, but the crowd reaction was big as the fish tipped the scale at 13 pounds over the minimum. In this type of tournament where there are various jackpots a smallish fish may not win the tournament, but may score big in the jackpot. So everyone is hoping to get a fish weighed and then get out and catch another and maybe win the tournament with points as well as the various jackpots.
As it turned out the El Lobo fish was the big winner of the day. Another fish was brought to the scales by Bull Rider, but it only weighed in at 228 pounds.
As was expected there were more billfish caught today, but they just weren’t big enough. The fishing was good, but not for big fish. Tune in tomorrow for the final results. As it stands now the winner is Bad Medicine with 409 points, Tiger Spirit with 395 points, Pegasus, part of Picantesportfishing.com charter fleet, with 329 points and El Lobo with 313 points. After the final announcements tomorrow night we will know how the money will be distributed. It should be real interesting.
