Los Cabos will host Bisbee’s Black & Blue sportfishing tournament on Oct. 22-26, giving competitors a chance to win $3 million in cash. More than 125 fishing fleets are expected this year, a 20 percent increase from last year’s tournament.
In an effort to promote ecological conservation and preserve the blue and black marlin species, participants are rewarded for every specimen they release back into the water. Participants are only allowed two specimens per day, with a 300-pound minimum, and teams consist of eight participants in each fleet.
The Offshore Bisbee Tournament is a smaller tournament that will also take place in Los Cabos from Oct. 18-20.
