Poco Bueno Billfish Tournament July 15-18, 2015
For nearly two hours Saturday, the hundreds that gathered at the dock near the Fishing Center waited.
They waited for the rumored 116-inch blue marlin caught by Mojo that could’ve unseated current offshore division leader Hasta Luego – which caught a 112.5-inch, 575-pound behemoth on its 55-foot Viking sport fisher Friday – the first day of the Poco Bueno fishing tournament.
But when the weigh crew helped lift the fish to the deck where it was measured, hoisted then weighed, Mojo just fell short.
Make that a pound short.
Here is how the harvested fish weighed in”
1. 575 Hasta Luego – 55 Viking
2. 574 Mojo – 58 Scully
3. 508 Lady Adele – 36 Bertram
4. 452 Honky Tonk – 52 Viking
5. 421 Done Deal – 70 Viking
6. 393 Over The Limit – 61 Viking
7. 389 Whoo Dat – 58 Jarrett Bay
