The Sarasota Tarpon Tournament has been a part of Sarasota for more than 83 years. Not only is the Tournament an opportunity to participate in world-class fishing, but also, to support the local community. To do that, the Tournament partners with a selected non-profit organization annually and donates a portion of the proceeds to that organization.
We are pleased to announce that for the third year in a row, the Tournament will partner with Suncoast Charities for Children. To date, the Tournament has donated more than $13,000 to the charity.
For an entry fee of just $125, anglers not only compete for an overall winner category, but also, weekly, junior, ladies, ‘most DNA samples collected’ and ‘his & her’ categories.
In 2013, a new rule was added, the angler winning the fly division, as well as the angler with the most registered DNA samples, will be invited to participate in the Fish-Off!
Weekly winners and winners of the two additional categories will all compete in a 2-day Fish-Off weekend to determine overall winner whose name is inscribed on the historic trophy.
If you’re looking to make new friends, have some fun and test your angling skills, come fish with us and yours could be the next name on that trophy.
