The 43rd edition of the Bisbee’s tournament in Los Cabos started with a change in the itinerary due to the passage of hurricane “Norma” along the coast. A remarkable occurrence unfolded as the renowned sport fishing tournaments, Bisbee’s Los Cabos Offshore and Bisbee’s Black And Blue, joined forces on October 26th and 27th.

This year’s Bisbee’s tournament celebrates its 43rd edition and is renowned for awarding the team of anglers that successfully captures a blue or black marlin weighing at least 300 pounds. What sets this event apart is its commitment to sustainable fishing practices, with each team limited to catching only two fish. This initiative contributes to the preservation of one of the region’s iconic species.

Bisbee’s holds global acclaim as the most lucrative sport fishing tournament in the world, with a staggering prize purse of $9,222,550 distributed among the 203 participating boats in this year’s edition.

The Bisbee’s Los Cabos Offshore tournament, often referred to as the “little brother” of Bisbee’s, also offers a generous prize purse of $2,121,600, attracting 153 teams to participate.

The tournament commenced with the opening gun at 7:00 a.m. on Thursday, October 26. Clicerio Mercado, the tournament organizer, has announced that the scales will open at 3:00 p.m. and close at 9:00 p.m., allowing participating anglers to present their marlin with the heaviest weight for consideration.

Furthermore, the start of this tournament signifies the official commencement of the high season in the region. The Hotel Association predicts that hotel occupancy will surpass 75% in the upcoming weeks, highlighting the tournament’s significant impact on the local economy and tourism in Los Cabos.
