Nine Minutes Too Late

Cabo San Lucas – Nine minutes may have cost Great Escape a win at the 2010 Bisbees. The fish was hooked before lines-out, but the team did not make it back in time for the 9:00 PM weigh-in, arriving just 9 minutes too late. The Daily Pot alone was $430,000, not to mention the potential for Tournament Win. Impressive fish either way, but that had to have hurt.(Thanks to Tracy Ehrenberg of the Pisces Fleet for bringing us the story and the picture)
