Second Place Big Blue Marlin Takes the Big Jackpots to the Tune of over $1.1 Million in 2011 Bisbee Black and Blue Marlin Tournament

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

Last night was the big awards banquet. It took place right here in the marina right in front of Picantesportfishing.com’s office.  The winners were just what were expected from the daily totals.

And here is how it went; first place was Angler Luis Arballo and his team aboard Bad Medicine. Their big fish was a Blue Marlin of 409 pounds, which was caught the first day and their total winnings were $394,090.


The most interesting winners were Tiger Spirit team, because they were in all the big daily jackpots. Their 395 pound Blue Marlin made their 2nd place winnings rocket to the sum of $1,162,842.50. Catching the biggest fish has its rewards, but being in the right jackpots can really pay off. They also won an offshore trip to Panama.

Third place went to Pegasus, part of the Picantesportfishing.com fleet, and Vicente Rangel. Their 329 pound Blue Marlin netted them $283,752.

Fourth place went to El Lobo and their 313 pound Blue Marlin weighed in on Friday. They took home a cool $259,745 in prize money.

In the release divisions the winners were Hammertime, $47,791; Big Time, $16,543 and third went to Reel Energy for $9,190.

Ending with a quote from Wayne Bisbee, tournament director, “… we are the big enchilada of sportfishing, We’re the World Series, Super Bowl, and Triple Crown all rolled into one wet and wild ride.”
