On Saturday night everyone gathered up to tell of the almost moments that got away! That’s fishing for you… so many close calls, and hours on the grind with a few teams rewarded for the hard work.
120 teams in all fought the battle at this years tournament, and over 3 million was passed out Saturday night.
14 Black Marlin
54 Blue Marlin
10 Striped Marlin & 1 Sailfish for a total of 78 fish
Wayne Bisbee announced “All of the fish brought to the scales, regardless of whether they were qualifiers or not, were donated to Hope for Los Cabos. Jen Limpert, representing Hope for Los Cabos, reported that the catch amounted to 11,249 pounds or 33,747 meals which would feed those in need. Many went to the Los Cabos Kids kitchens while others were delivered to the needy people in the barrios. It is so great that those fish help so many in great need!”
Bisbee also announced that this year’s tournament was responsible for the largest number of qualifying fish in its history before he concluded the tournament by awarding the checks to the winners.

Congrats to all the winners for their hard work, and thank you to Team Picante for their efforts at this years Tournament. Honorable mention to “Team Liquid Assets” fishing aboard “Picante Pride” we got on the board, but in the end we needed a bigger fish missing the money by 4#’s… that’s tough luck, we wish them better luck next year!
