This week got off to a slower start than last, due mostly to a surprising storm that caught everyone off guard. The Storm which came through Saturday to Monday brought a torrential downpour that closed the port and pushed the Los Cabos Billfish Tourney over a day. Two tournaments took place this week, the Los Cabos Billfish and the Bisbees Offshore, the first had 51 boats entered, while the second had 119 boats and a $1.3 Million Dollar Pot. Billfish numbers were still good, 133 fish released total this week, which included nice sized Blue Marlin, averaging about 200 - 250 lbs each. 72 Tag Team took the Release Division in the Bisbees with four Blue Marlin and 3 Striped Marlin over the course of two days. There were 176 dorado caught, which were slightly smaller in size compared to last week, averaging between 10 and 20 lbs. Tuna catches totaled 94 fish, which included a nice 157 lbs Yellowfin for 38 C Rod during the Bisbees that won them $132,430 USD. Other catches included wahoo mainly, with 35 Bill Collector 2 taking 1st place in the Wahoo Division of the Los Cabos Billfish with a 29.2 pounder.
Big Tuna weighing in at 134.5 lbs!

Top marlin release boat was Pisces 37 BBII, which went 8 for 13 on Striped Marlin.
