Pic show why they are called Wall Eye....seriously. They are the only fish that has a reflective liner (tapetum lucidum) behind the retina which is why the eye appears white. Nice fish, BTW

Anglers with giant marlin lose race against clock, miss epic payday


It took only one day -- including nine minutes of sheer angst -- for the world's richest marlin-fishing competition to produce Hollywood-style drama and extreme disappointment.



Eight large marlin were weighed Wednesday, for considerable riches, during the first day of the three-day Bisbee's Black & Blue jackpot tournament off Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

But what does not show in the standings was by far the largest marlin, an 800-pound beast, that took five hours to land and was brought to the scale nine minutes past the 9 p.m. deadline, disqualifying a catch that would have netted a team from Texas more than $430,000.

What's more disappointing for Team Great Escape is that if no other team beats that weight during the remainder of the competition -- and marlin that large are rarely caught off Cabo San Lucas -- the catch would have been worth $1 million or more.

"I'm not in that good of shape. I should have worked out," Carl Riley, the angler who fought the blue marlin, told a Pisces Sportfishing representative during the late weigh-in. "I just want a massage and to go to bed."

The fishermen, who comprise one of 103 teams vying for more than $2 million in prize money, were aware that a 599-pound marlin, caught earlier Wednesday aboard the vessel Reelaxe, was the fish to beat when the 800-pounder struck a large lure being trolled behind the boat.

It was about 3 p.m. and the team was more than 20 miles north of Cabo in the Sea of Cortez. Time should not have been a factor but Riley and the crew did not count on the marlin dying at great depth during the fight.

Because the person fighting the fish cannot accept assistance from teammates, Riley was saddled with the task of reeling in 800 pounds of dead weight against an opposing current, and many times felt like giving up.

When the marlin was finally aboard, the team had only an hour to get back in the darkness. Word had spread of the giant marlin coming shore and about 1,000 people gathered around the dock-side scale.

"I spoke to the crew on the phone and was told, 'It's a really big fish -- 700 or 800 pounds,' " Tracy Ehrenberg, general manager of the Pisces fleet, said on the landing's blog.

Tournament director Wayne Bisbee was among those on the dock, official time piece in hand.

"We willed them to go faster and imagined we would see their lights at any second," wrote Ehrenberg, whose business charters the Great Escape. "But it was not to be. The 9 p.m. deadline came and the fish was disqualified. The boat came into view nine minutes after 9 to everybody's dismay... well, except the team that was now in first place."

That was the team aboard Reelaxe, who through late-morning Thursday was still in the overall lead. However, Team Great Escape at mid-morning Thursday boated a 430-pound marlin, which it hoped would hold as the largest of Day 2 and ensure it at least earns a slice of the Black & Blue pie.

The Bisbee's competition, which attracts anglers from around the world, is in its 30th year and famous for producing drama and controversy.

Epic battles between man and fish have raged long into the darkness. Accusations of cheating have flown, and because of the amount of money involved, winning teams must pass lie-detector tests to determine if all rules were followed. One of many classic stories involved an angler who failed the test, became belligerent and smashed the windows of the hotel that served as tournament headquarters.

First-place prize money varies from year to year, depending on the number of entries and how many side jackpots a winning team has entered. A record check of $2,162,035 was written to the winners in 2008.

My Buddy Ken landing a big King Salmon in B.C canada, We use 10' 6" casting rods, 50 pound test line, bouncing a tuff of yarn on the bottom of the Vedder/Chilliwack River.

Ken's biggest fish couple years back was a 55 pounder, with the tail fin 14" tall. It's like trying to turn a freight train when you hook into these big fish in a small shallow river.
