Hola Amigos,

I would like share with you, what a wonderful week we just had hosting one of the best fishing tournaments of the world.

 

The 10th Annual Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore Tournament, hosted by Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort  took place July 28 through August 1 in Buenavista, Baja California Sur, Mexico. Fifty-three boats and 254 anglers competed for $274,350.00 in prize money.

In what is becoming a Bisbee's "Grand Finale" tradition, it was the last fish on the last day that won the 2009 event. Cap’n Jake, a 50’ Mikelson with Capt. Barrie Harnett, pulled up to the scales at the last minute with a 341-pound blue marlin caught by Kent Andersson to squeeze out the only other qualifying marlin of the tournament by 31 lbs. The team aboard Cap’n Jake took $77,871.40 for 1st Place and the Day 3 Marlin Jackpots.

The runner-up, however, took the big money. Keith Jones, fishing aboard Mi Corazon, a 30’ Luhrs a local Spa Buenavista boat, captained by Antonio Lucero Castillo, caught a 310-pound blue marlin on the second day and, in addition to 2nd Place, won the Day 1 and Day 2 Marlin Jackpots for a total of $124,784.60. Mi Corazon is no stranger to center stage—they took first place in 2006 with a 418-pound blue marlin and share the record with Copa Gobernador for the largest blue marlin caught in the ten year history of Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore Tournament.

The fishing was steady throughout the three days of competition despite rough seas, and the field posted 101 billfish with a 95% release ratio: 36 blue marlin, 1 black marlin, 37 striped marlin and 27 sailfish.

Tuna were scarce, but the two that made it to the scales were both over 100 pounds. First place went to Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort sponsored team: Fisherman with Capt. Perico Sanchez Alarcon and angler Daniel Fisher. The 174.4-pound yellowfin won $17,997.00 for Top Tuna and the Day 3 Tuna Jackpot. Fisher’s son, Danny Fisher, Jr., caught the third largest dorado of the tournament, 51.4 lbs., and won honorable mention as the top junior angler.
 

The host location Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort, sign up a record number of boats on the tournament. We had 8 boats fighting for the big money this year, the boats that fished the tournament were: Dottie BII (Capt. Vicente Cosio), Dusty BII (Capt. Alejandro Castro), Dusty BII (Capt. Rosario Cota), Alegria (Capt. Juan Garcia), Careleste (Capt. Carlos Agundez), Liliana (Capt. Marco Yepiz) and fishing for only one day we had the former winners of 2006, Tres Hermanos (Capt. Ramon Tamayo) and Yanet (Capt. Felipe Ruiz).


Home Team Dottie B II with Capt. Vicente Cosio, and team members: Mr. Togo Hazard, Mike Mcgrath and Esaul Valdez won the Day 2 Dorado Jackpot (48.5 lbs.) they won $8,925.00.

 

Also Alegria made the 1st place Release Team, obtaining the highest release points, catching and releasing: 2 Blue Marlin, 4 Striped Marlin and 2 Sailfish.

One of the true highlights of the event was the special day the Valdez family, owners of the Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort, hosted for 15 boys from Casa Hogar, a local orphanage. The boys enjoyed a day of fishing, a picnic lunch on the beach and splashed away in the pool for hours. Casa Hogar was also the recipient of several voluntary donations made by various teams including 100% of the proceeds from the auction of a framed reproduction of the 1992 Bisbee’s Black & Blue tournament art by Chuck Byron.

 

The traditional time for the Bisbee´s East Cape Offshore Tournament is the last week of July or the first week of August, so if you need more information you can visit www.bisbees.com or call us to our 800-752-3555 or visit www.hotelbuenavista.com.

In-shore Fishing: Mostly off-shore action but snappers and roosters were giving battle.

 

Bait Used: We keep not having a bait problem in the area, sardine, caballitos, mullets available, and some ballyhoo that can't be missed it.

 

Highlight of the Week: Excellent week for Bisbee's Tournament !

 

See you next week!!!
