Bisbee’s Black and Blue (B&B) and Bisbees Los Cabos Offshore (LCO) tournamentsTWO IN ONE

This year was a very different year as far as Bisbees is concerned, due to Hurricane Norma which hit the area on Friday October 20th night, the organizers decided that it was a great idea to bring together the two largest and most anticipated tournaments of the region in one and thus not having to cancel the LCO, the complaints did not take long to appear because the competition would be high while the time and fishing opportunity would decrease from five days to only two, in the end the teams that stayed joined the excitement of a million-dollar tournament and accepted the designs of Mother Nature, both B&B and LCO tournaments took place on October 26th and 27th… here are the results.
Bisbee´s pays out a Record Breaking $4.4 M Dollar check, the largest single check given out in the tournament’s 43 year history.
