“I’d hang around with the mates and captains after school and thought to myself, ‘Wow, if I was a mate, I’d have it made,” Mann tells. “Then, after so many years as a mate, I thought if I was a captain, I’d have it made."
The Spanish Main Series (SMS) is fished from three destinations in the Caribbean (DR, BVI, USVI). The format is a "team" competition and team members and boats may change between destinations. Min. 2 anglers per team, max. 4. Team points are accumulated and at least 2 legs must be fished in order to win the "Treasure Chest" (pot), the final USVI Open/ABMT leg is mandatory.
The SMS is designed to challenge experienced anglers and crews. Points are earned for the release of blue marlin, white marlin, spearfish and sailfish (Alvarez's DR Intl. Billfish Shootout and and BVI Open - Bitter End, Virgin Gorda). The St. Thomas ABMT "Boy Scout" leg is a blue marlin only tournament. Observers are supplied for all three events - providing that all teams are signed and paid by July 1st. 2014.
The Booty - Series Treasure Chest
Entry into the Spanish Main Series is FREE! Contestants pay only their share of the 'Treasure Chest' which is $10,000 per team. At the end of the series the pot is split 70/30 by the 1st. and 2nd. place winners (after BSA receives it's 15% share), based on total number of accumulated "team" points. Individual legs of the series will naturally have an entrance fee of their own. Participants are encouraged to read the rules of each leg of the SMS before entering.
