American Fishing Wire/HI-SEAS has signed on to sponsor the 2015 Bisbee tournaments in the US.
The competitions include the East Cape Offshore, Los Cabos Offshore and the Black & Blue Marlin Tournament. Bisbees Black & Blue Tournaments have been taking place in the Los Cabos region of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico for over 30 years.
Started in 1981 by Bob Bisbee, the Black & Blue Marlin Tournament has grown from six teams with a purse of $10,000 to more than 150 teams with millions of dollars on the line. In 2006 the Black & Blue had its biggest overall cash pay-out of $4,165,960 – still the biggest in sport fishing history.
Tricia Bisbee, Director of Sponsorship, said she is excited for AFW/HI-SEAS to be involved.
“We are very proud to have AFW/HI-SEAS join our sponsor family and to be a part of the 35th anniversary celebrations. We look forward to working with them for many years to come.”
