Anglers land 800-pound marlin, but 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 fishing tournament, but it won't count as the winning catch.

The group landed the fish nine minutes past the first day's 9 p.m. deadline, nullifying the result.

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