3 Fishing Days - May 26,27,28

As the name implies, the "Bahamas Open" is open to all anglers on boats in the area.

This year we are operating the first leg of the Bermuda Triangle Series (BTS) in Abaco, Bahamas.

The Bermuda Triangle Series travels to three hot fishing destinations (Bahamas, Bermuda and Virgin Islands), but each leg is an "Open" meaning it stands on its own to allow anglers in the area to compete against the anglers fishing the series.

The 2011 Bahamas fishing dates are May 26, 27, 28 We are calling it the Boy Scout 'Bahamas Open' and it will offer three great days of fishing.

You also choose your line test - choices are 50, 80, or 130 lb. and naturally there is a proportional point spread See Rules and Point Spread.

We operate a "Modified Release" format, meaning you can boat a large fish, but it won't count for tournament "points" unless it weighs 1000 pounds or more. We provide ABMT and IGFA certified observers to verify the releases.

The BTS "Bahamas Open" is primarily an "Anglers Tournament" and may the best anglers win! The Calcuttas and Dailys are paid to the boat owner or charter name on record.

You will be fishing for Sailfish, Spearfish, White Marlin and Blue Marlin. Our tournaments are designed for experienced anglers. As with our famous St. Thomas "Boy Scout" event, you will be fishing against some of the best anglers and crews in the industry. If you need to locate a good boat for this tournament - call our tournament headquarters at 340-775-9500 or Toll Free 1-888-234-7484. An exciting Calcutta will be offered during this event and a "series" pot will also be established. Great prizes and cash awards! See entry fees and prize link below.


Many of our friends who fish the Bahamas have told us they would like to support our Boy Scouts fund raising effort but our "go with light line to win" Bermuda Triangle Series (BTS) format puts a damper on their style of fishing and their career goal of catching a Grander. We've listened and we've developed an exciting 2 day event for the hard-cores!

May 13-14, 2011

Join our 2 day "Heavy Hitters" Division. It's a slug fest with a simple format... most Blue Marlin wins! The entry fee is just $1500 per boat! The Hitter's Calcutta is a suggested $5,000 per boat but the final $$$ amount and the winner's split will be decided by majority agreement during the anglers meeting. The BSA shall receive 15% of any pot amount. This is an old fashion "boat tournament" without rules on the number of anglers, crew, rods, line test or fight time.

Observers are supplied to oversee the release and the use of IGFA angling rules. 1000 "points" per blue marlin released and most points wins. Ties are broken by time. Because we represent a youth organization that promotes conservation, any blue marlin that is boated for "personal best" reasons cannot be awarded points unless the fish weighs 1000 pounds. Checks written to BSA are tax deductible. Teams entered into the BTS "Bermuda Open" (series entrants or a local entry) that also wish to join the "Heavy Hitters" pot may do so, but the structured rules of the BTS "Bermuda Open" must prevail. Participants in the "Heavy Hitters" division are invited to all tournament functions.
