Thirty local and visiting teams completed their paperwork and plunked down their final payments for the entry fee and brown bag jackpot for the Marina Puerto Escondido Tournament.

Cabo swordfish explode as 43-year-old Pisces fleet leads the Los Cabos fleet with record back-to-back “swordy” catches two days in a row — Thursday, Pisces 31’ Tracy Ann caught one, and Friday Pisces 35’ Bill Collector caught another two.
The yellowtail bite that had been en Fuego has somewhat slowed from all the pressure. Despite that, we were able to get quite a few nice yellowtail on both days.
