Bisbees Pays Out a Record Breaking $4.4 Million Dollar Check!

The 4.4 Million Dollar Fish! Stella June’s 368 pound Black Marlin

BISBEES Pays Out a Record Breaking $4.4 MILLION Dollar check! The largest single check given out in the tournament’s 43 year history – $3,906,550 USD exactly.

This record was previously held by Team Bad Company, in 2007, a payout just $4,000 dlls less than this. These big money winners were Team Stella June landing a 368 pound Black Marlin on Day One – taking the Daily and the Jackpots up to the $10,000 plus their “Let it Ride” Jackpots from 2020 & 2021, and earning them 2ND PLACE OVERALL.

Rocky Mountain Hookers landed an impressive 501 pound Blue the next day though, giving them 1ST PLACE OVERALL & knocking Stella June’s posible check amount, as if their Black Marlin would have held as the largest of the tournament, their check would have been in the 5 MILLION Dollar range.

The Rocky Mountain Team brought their awesome fish (the largest in any tournament this year) to the scales just as the weigh station opened as it was boated by 9:45 am. That means their Marlin bit only minutes after their lines were in the water! An impressive $3,644,139 USD Total check for them! The team also, very kindly, donated $100,000 USD of their winnings to the CASA HOGAR Orphanage in Cabo (on which the film “Blue Miracle” is based on.
