Bill Collector Scores Big $167,877.00 in Prize Money

Last night the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament awards banquet took place beachside, at the Playa Grande resort, giving teams a chance to get spruced up and mingle with other teams during a delicious four course dinner. Of course we were very proud of Pisces Bill Collector, a 31 ft Cabo, for taking first place and to have caught the only qualifying fish during the event. Total winnings for the team headed up by Mark Chiavetta and crew Julio Gonzalez  & Esteban Balderas was $167,877.00.
Team Bad Medicine scored $43,753.00 for most billfish released and a dorado weighed in, whilst team Galanti took $30,200.00 for most billfish released on day two.
Wild Hooker, did very well with two tuna of 227 and 247 lbs respectively for angler Alan Stewart winning him $19,507.00. These are exacly what he needs for the Tuna Tournament coming up next month.
This is the second time Pisces has won this tournament; in 2006 Tracy Ann, a 31 ft Bertram, won over $400,000.00 for a group of anglers from Finland.
Just goes to show you don't necessarily need a big boat to place.
