The Shootout

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - November 19, 2015

In response to several billfish tournament team, owner and captain requests, Captain Skip Smith and Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina - an exquisite, luxury resort located on the very private Scrub Island in the British Virgin Islands - have collaborated to present blue marlin enthusiasts a new venue in the territory.

Named the Scrub Island Blue Marlin Invitational, Smith hopes to attract not only the U.S.-based teams who take advantage of the hot North Drop bite during the summer full moons, but to open their doors to many Virgin Islands, Puerto Rican, and Dominican teams as well. With its close proximity to the fishing grounds - and Anegada - this tournament is a breath of fresh air and sure to be a success.

The Scrub Island Blue Marlin Invitational will be held at the Scrub Island Resort, Spa & Marina August 14 - 17, 2016.

Tournament details can be found at as they develop.
