Anglers land 800-pound marlin, lose out on payday

A team of anglers landed an 800-pound marlin Wednesday off Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in the Bisbee's Black and Blue tournament, but it won't count as the winning catch.

Thegroup, called Team Great Escape, landed the fish nine minutes past the 9 p.m. deadline, nullifying the result.

The toughest aspect is that if no other team beats that weight during the remainder of the competition - and marlin that large are rarely caught off Cabo San Lucas - the catch would have been worth $1 million or more.
