There are countless ways to gauge success in today’s society. From presidential polls to college football rankings, friends, followers and likes to stocks and commodities values, all measure degrees of achievement, standings and wealth. The benchmark for the Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Jackpot Tournament, the richest sport-fishing contest in the world and presented this year by Orca Coolers, is the unofficial Pacifico Index. By all accounts the 2016 edition was a resounding success with an overall purse of $3,511,900 at stake for the 121 boats entered.
