In Los Cabos, Baja California Sur began the (36th) edition of Bisbee black and blue sport fishing tournament considered to be the largest prize purse in the world of fishing with over 3.5 million dollars in prizes.
Nearly a thousand anglers from all five continents gathered to form 122 teams who participated in this edition of the three day fishing competition.
Joseph Holding of Colorado, angler:
(translation) "this Bisbee's is wonderful, we are doing incredible, and I hope that we win today..." It is the largest team, we are 14... The team is called Squisher".
The rules of the tournament only allow the capture of black and blue marlin of over 300 pounds in weight.
Paul Caire and Beto Perez Cantu (CDMX) anglers:
" We hooked a Marlin and released it because it didn´t reach the minimum 300 pounds, but today we´re going for the big one, I hope you will see us latter today at the scale. Cabo is a wonderful place, everything so well organized, it´s incredible, great fishing during this excellent tournament.”
Karim Quintero, angler:
"Yesterday we released two marlins , they were both near the 300 pounds limit, but they wouldn´t qualify".
