Omar Castaneda, the director of Casa Hogar, a local orphanage that was home to 42 boys at the time, fielded a team with three boys from the orphanage and fished with local captain Ernie Cossio on the “Mucho Bueno” boat. He had never fished offshore, hooked a big blue marlin. After chasing the jumping marlin and using all of his energy to fight it, the team boated the fish and headed to the scales. The marlin weighed in at 385 pounds. The blue marlin went on to win the tournament, netting the team a $258,325 payout, which was donated to Casa Hogar.”

“Hurricane Odile hit Cabo in 2014 very bad. The orphanage “Casa Hogar” was hit too. The opportunity to fish for a big monetary prize came up… and the rest is history. A 385 pound Marlin awarded both the orphanage and Ernie’s fishing team with the 2014 Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin 1st Place. In addition, the next day they had the opportunity to fish a 270 lb Tuna. 2 days and 2 blessings! What you need to do is come fish with them to experience the same blessing “Casa Hogar Orphanage” received…”
