Day One Bisbee Report

Ninety four teams competed on day one in the world's richest Billfish Tournament, but only one qualifying fish i.e over 300 lbs was brought to the scale by the team aboard "Mi Novia" headed up by San Diego native Bryan Miller. The fish took a 15 lb live yellowfin tuna and for obvious reasons the angler is not saying where, taking 23 minutes to boat the 375 lb blue marlin on 130 lb tackle. The fish is worth $232,000.00 for taking top honors on day one.
