Casa Hogar's big fish. (Western Outdoor News)

The hurricane is history as far as the fishing is concerned in Baja California Sur.

Hurricane Odile left a huge mess after it struck Cabo San Lucas on September 14, but it wasn’t enough to prevent its richest sportsfishing tournaments from going ahead. The richest, Bisbee’s Black & Blue, drew 125 teams that competed for US $2.14 million in prize money.

While some anglers did well in picking up a share of the prize money, the biggest winner might not have been an angler at all, but Casa Hogar, a local orphanage for boys. The team that drew one of the “give-away” entries, and was fishing on behalf of the orphanage, was the event’s top winner after Omar Castaneda landed the biggest qualifying fish, a 385-pound bue marlin.

Casa Hogar was the beneficiary of the team’s $258,325 in winnings.

The biggest cash winner of the tournament was the team Sporty Game when Carlos Cervantes landed a 337-pound blue marlin on the event’s final day, for a payout of $1.68 million.
