THE FAIRMONT HAMILTON PRINCESS
A favorite with our anglers! The Fairmont Hamilton Princess overlooks the picturesque harbor of Bermuda and it features all the amenities that you expect of a first class property. Just a short walk from the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club and other marinas where boats are staying, this is the host hotel of "Bermuda Open" Awards Banquet. Tel. (800) 441-1414 or 441-295-3000 and be sure to mention that you are participating in the Bermuda Triangle Series. Visit the Fairmont Hamilton Princess website:“Fairmont Hamilton Princess”
The Rosemont is a great recommendation for those who are planning to bring the family and for those who want to avoid the busy atmosphere of a large hotel. The Rosemont overlooks the Bermuda harbor and is located just a block from the Fairmont and a short walk to the RBYC and the marinas. This is a family operated poolside property that offers both simplicity and comfort. "Angler" rates are available if you mention that you are fishing the "Bermuda Triangle Series."

In the morning work rush you'll see Johnny Barnes at the roundabout - blessing the drivers as they circle past him - and then you'll notice the owners waving back and honking their horns in appreciation!
Johnny puts an early morning smile on your face and its no wonder the community loves him so much. The story goes that Johnny retired years back and against the wishes of his wife, Johnny took up a new job, appointing himself the morning greeter! Johnny has become a Bermuda legend and to prove it - you'll pass a full size statue that was cast in his honor!
This is great side trip for those who enjoy history and don't mind the heights. Driving the south shore road - you'll come upon an 1800's lighthouse sitting on top of a hill, one that as you can imagine, has survived the forces of many a devastating hurricane. To this day it still serves, warning passing mariners of the barrier reefs that surround the island. The climb up the stairs of the lighthouse is well worth the effort - you'll learn the history of the structure and there is a view the whole island from the top!
The charter fleet in Bermuda is one of the best there is! They have a wealth of big game fishing experience and they can boast of a great fishery to boot! There aren't too many places in the world where you can anchor or drift for yellowfins in the morning - switch to trolling the edge for wahoo - then move off into the deep for the very real possibility of seeing a monster blue marlin! These charter captains are a helpful bunch and they invite you to come fish their waters.
Book early for the tournaments!

In addition to the boats listed here - there may be others available. If you find these boats are booked, give one of the listed captains a call for their recommendations of others.
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 lbs. or more. We provide ABMT Observers to verify the releases.
The BTS "Bermuda Open" is primarily an "Anglers
Tournament" meaning - may the best angler win the prizes and cash awards! The boat owner or team leader of record receives the funds of the Calcutta and Dailys. Visit the RULES button on this site for an explanation of our tournament rules.
You will be fishing for Sailfish, Spearfish, White Marlin and Blue Marlin. Our
tournaments are designed for skilled anglers and as with our famous St. Thomas "Boy Scout" event,
you'll be fishing against some of the best anglers and crews in the sport. We recommend the charter boats listed above. Call our office at 340-775-9500 or toll Free 1-888-234-7484 if all are booked for more suggestions.
$10,000 first prize (based on 10 or more boats signing up) plus many tackle prizes. An exciting Calcutta and Dailys will be offered. The BTS "series" leg winner receives Ed Pang Gold Hook with ruby - or a precious ruby is added to angler's existing hook.
"HEAVY HITTERS" DIVISION
June 29-30, 2010 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, rotation, line test or fight time.
Many of our friends who fish the Bermuda 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!
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 over the Bahamas record of 1000 pounds or greater. Checks written to BSA are tax deductible. Teams entered into the BTS "Bermuda Open" (series entrants or local entry) that also wish to join the "Heavy Hitters" pot may do so, but the more structured rules of the BTS "Bermuda Open" must prevail. Participants in the "Heavy Hitters" division are invited to all tournament functions.
