Bisbee’s Black and Blue – Day 1

Overall a slightly subpar day on the water for the boats participating in the world’s richest billfish tournament – the $1.9 million Black and Blue.  103 boats were out today, with 36 billfish caught – broken down as follows: 13 blues, nine blacks, 13 striped marlin, and a lone Pacific sail.  Looks like eight of the 36 were weighed – meaning the fish weren’t numerous but were fairly large.  Largest was a 599-pound black caught on the Reelaxe – fight time FIVE HOURS.

More information to come as we get it, hopefully including some pictures.
