Congratulations to Andrew Hughes! See his team's 310lb Marlin
His team caught a 310lb Marlin in the 10th Annual Bisbee's East Cape Offshore Tournament this year. The tournament took place July 28 through August 1 in Baja Sur, Mexico at the Buenavista.
Their team captured the two dailies giving them a huge share of the money.
"Keith Jones, fishing aboard Mi Corazon, a 30’ Luhrs 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."
