41st Bisbee Black and Blue Jackpot reaches an enormous $9,725,000

For the 20th time in the 41-year history of the event, the Bisbee BLACK and BLUE wrote a check for over $1,000,000!

Team BRANIFF, FIRST TIME WINNER aboard the 58′ Dona Homa, with Captain Lupe at the wheel and angler Andres Pineda on the rod, caught what turned out to be the largest fish during the event – a 489-pound blue marlin earning the Team $1,134,350.

The total Jackpot is an enormous $9,725,000, a massive increase of 76% from the prior year, the highest amount ever recorded in a single year in the history of the Money Sportfishing Tournaments on the planet. Along with an equally notable 56% increase in Teams from 127 in 2020 to 198 in 2021, all verified by CatchStat.

Bob Bisbee (1933-2018) founded the Bisbee Black and Blue in 1980 when he and ten friends challenged each other to a tournament in Cabo. As the event became established, the Bisbee family added the Los Cabos Offshore in 1997. The East Cape Offshore followed in 2000. Over the years, under the direction of Wayne Bisbee and the Bisbee family, the three tournaments have paid out approximately $104,038,250.
