Dec 01, 2015. Today we learned that Capt. Skip Smith announced the dates of his Scrub Island, BVI Invitational Tournament (Aug. 14-17). Those dates will overlap the 44th annual USVI Open/ABMT which is scheduled for Aug. 15, 16, 17 and 19. We feel this to be an irresponsible action because informed folks in the fishing industry know that the August full moon is the traditional "rest day" of the ABMT. While we welcome Capt. Smith’s help in promoting the fishing in these Virgin Islands - we do not understand why he'd intentionally try to undermine a 44 old year event that financially supports local youth programs. Capt. Skippy, we feel that you are on a course that will divide these islands and cause bad feelings amongst our mutually shared fishing friends. The right thing to do is to reschedule your event. JL
