Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin Tournament Brings in Big Fish and Pays Big Bucks

Bisbee’s Black and Blue Marlin Tournament Brings in Big Fish and Pays Big Bucks

Oct 5, 2012

Fishing fanatics don’t want to miss the 2012 Bisbee’s Los Cabo Offshore Tournament. Los Cabos Offshore Tournament runs October 19 to October 21, and the Black and Blue Marlin Tournament is held October 23 through October 27.

The tournament, started in 1981 by Bob Bisbee has grown from six teams with $10,000 in prizes up for grabs to over 150 teams and millions of dollars on the line. Every October, teams come from all over to compete for the big prize.

The Los Cabos Offshore Tournament is often thought of as the “Little Bisbee’s”. It is usually more laid-back and is very social. The event is usually full of camaraderie where friends meet, swap stories and get in some fishing before the “Big Show” that is the Black and Blue Marlin Tournament.

The Big Show begins with a bang. The Baja Brewing Company at Cabo Villas Beach Resort promotes the Shot Gun Start of the Bisbee Fishing tournament. Every morning, hundreds of boats participating in the tournament line up in the bay of Cabo and wait for the flair to go off at 8 a.m..  The shotgun start tells all the boats that the daily fishing hours have officially begun.

The Baja Brewing Company is located on the rooftop of the resort and overlooks the bay of Cabo. It is considered the absolute best spot to watch the shot gun start. Hundreds of interested tourists come to the restaurant to enjoy breakfast and watch the hundreds of boats take off for the day. IT is really an amazing site.

The restaurant will have breakfast specials and raffle off prizes to celebrate the tournament beginning at 8 a.m. on October 24-26.  Fisherman and fans will have a once in a lifetime experience at the Bisbee Fishing Tournament. It is truly an event you don’t want to miss.
