Tarpon Tournament

To celebrate the history of the first documented tarpon caught on a rod-and-reel in “Ding” Darling’s Tarpon Bay in 1885, Doc Ford’s and the “Ding” Darling Wildlife Society-Friends of the Refuge have partnered to host this sixth annual “care, catch, and release” tournament on the weekend of May 19, 2017. Registration is $500 per team of four, 100 percent of which goes back to the anglers in cash awards. 

Stay tuned for details on registering. In the meantime, have a look at last year's results.
