Welcome to the 87th Annual Suncoast Tarpon Roundup–truly a Florida classic tradition relating to the most sought-after gamefish in Florida. This is our 87th year and we are excited to continue the longest running tarpon tournament in the world!
The Suncoast Tarpon Roundup Tournament Series is an all-release tarpon fishing tournament promoting sportsmanship, research and education, while bringing the community together to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay’s premier game fish, the Megalops Atlanticus! The Suncoast Tarpon Roundup strives to provide a safe, educational and entertaining forum for anglers of all ages.
We are honored to have Task Force Dagger as our beneficiary. Task Force Dagger provides assistance to wounded, ill or injured US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) members and their families. They respond to urgent needs, conduct rehabilitative therapy events (RTE) and provide the next generation health solutions for issues facing our service members. They are a rallying point to combat traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress (PTS) and environmental exposures. Their cohesive programs enable families to seize the moment and live life.
New for 2021 is the Tournament Series. This will be a team event consisting of two individual tournaments, awarding the top five teams for each event. The top 20 teams qualify for finale day!
