Participating teams hit the water Wednesday, October 17, in hopes of earning some of the estimated $750,000* in cash and prizes by releasing the most billfish or catching the largest marlin, tuna, wahoo and dorado during the tournament’s three days of fishing. Weigh-ins and billfish release video check-in will be at IGY Marinas Cabo San Lucas.




The LCBT was the first tournament in Cabo to use cameras and technology to score billfish releases, leading to large cash purses for letting billfish go. The tournament was also the first to introduce a live online scorekeeper in Cabo, allowing participants and fans from all over the world to access what happens on the water and at the weigh scales.
