Bisbee's East Cape: final results

Congratulations to the Dreamweaver, which saw its 581-pound black marlin from the tournament’s first day hold up to win the tournament and its $18,000 first place purse.  All told, 56 boats released 108 billfish, with two blacks, 33 blues, 64 striped marlin, and nine sailfish all told.  Three fish in total were weighed – the 581 black plus a 441 and 377 blue.  One blue didn’t make weight.

Two more Bisbee’s to come!
