• It’s been said that success is found at the three-way intersecti­on of preparatio­n, hard work and luck, especially in a high-stakes tournament such as the Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Jackpot in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Million-dollar marlin are caught long before the first line goes in the water. Aboard the 80-foot Viking Hooray, tournament prep means an early start and the hunt for live bait off the southernmo­st tip of the Baja Peninsula. On the water for days prior to the start of the main event, the team will assess the conditions, develop a pattern, and then hope for a bit of luck along the way.
