SCRUB ISLAND BILLFISH SERIES RULES, AWARDS & OPTIONAL JACKPOT ENTRY 2024
UNOFFICIAL RULES & ENTRY
Boats and participants competing in the Scrub Island Billfish Series Leg 1 September 13 - 17 and/or Leg 2 September 17 – 20 are eligible for the 2024 Scrub Island Billfish Series Trophies and Awards. Teams may also enter the optional Scrub Island Billfish Series Points Jackpot to compete for cash awards.
All participants competing in the Scrub Island Billfish Series must follow the rules governing each qualifying tournament. Boats earning points do not have to use the same participants/anglers at each event. The sum of all official points earned at each qualifying event will determine the total points awarded for the series. The boat with the highest total points will win the series. In the event of a tie, the boat accumulating the points first will be the champion with the other boat assuming the next position.
Each qualifying event has the same scoring system for billfish. Boats receive 500 points for blue marlin releases and 100 points for white marlin, spearfish and sailfish releases. Points are accumulated during the two events.
This is a boat championship with awards going to the boat with the highest point total. The winning boat will receive a series trophy and prize package.
