The Sarasota Tarpon Tournament has been part of Sarasota’s history for 89 years and is the oldest tarpon tournament in the world! The Tournament not only offers participants the opportunity to partake in word-class fishing but also support the community. Each year, the Tournament partners with a non-profit organization and donates a portion of its proceeds to the selected group. Click below to learn more.
