The Crew of the Five More Minutes was the second boat of the day to hook up in Bisbee’s Black and Blue this morning. After a 45 minute battle the team boated a 356lb blue that would hold on for the remainder of the day in first place.
The Tranquilo had to wait until 2:51pm until they got their bite. But once again it was angler Michael Moretti who got bit and like they did in the Lil Bisbees they did again today. Moretti battled the 327lb blue to boatside rather quickly but the fish seemed marginal to qualify. So the team took their time and had three good looks before Captain Victor Julio Pizarro made the call to take the fish. The blue taped out at 105 inches by 50 inch girth. The formula said the fish would weigh 325lbs. When Tranquilo reached the scales the fish weighed in at 327lbs. The Five More Minutes was not across the board in the daily jackpot so Tranquilo’s fish will be worth an estimate $912,000. Congrats to both crews. Tomorrow is day 2.
