The thrilling event of the year is coming up. The Bisbee’s Black & Blue Tournament has been taking place in Los Cabos for over 30 years. There are currently two tournaments; Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore in Buenavista which is in July, and the Los Cabos Offshore Charity Tournament and Black & Blue Marlin Tournament which take place in Cabo San Lucas every October.
It’s been amazing to see how far this tournament has come since it’s beginnings in 1981 by Bob Bisbee, with just six teams pursuing a prize of $10,000 to now more than 150 teams with millions of dollars on the line. In 2006 the Black & Blue had its biggest overall cash payout of $4,165,960. This was, and remains, the largest payout in sportfishing history.
Over the years each tournament has developed its own personality with the East Cape Offshore being more of a laid back event and takes place a few days before (the “big tournament) called “Little Bisbee’s.”
The last tournament or “big show” as many like to describe it, is of course Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Tournament. It’s five days of adrenaline and full of hard-core excitement. With the beautiful and lively city of Cabo San Lucas as the backdrop, thousands of people crowd the marina walkways to shop, party and watch huge fish being weighed in at the scales in front of the world-famous Puerto Paraiso Entertainment Plaza. The Black & Blue is a once in a lifetime experience you’ll never forget, whether you take home memories or millions of dollars.
