Tampa Bay Watch Tarpon Rodeo
Honoring Ed Alber
June 15-16, 2018
Join us June 15-16, 2018 for the Tampa Bay Watch Tarpon Rodeo, Honoring Tampa Bay Watch founding board member Ed Alber. The Tarpon Rodeo is an all catch-and-release tournament on Tampa Bay to benefit our restoration projects and education programs. Anglers launch from the starting point at the Fort De Soto boat ramp for the half-day tournament. Fish are called in by the boat captain and logged by professional CCA judges. The exciting post-tournament Castaway Soirée includes a silent auction, live auction, vendors, and great food and drinks at the TradeWinds Island Resort on St. Pete Beach. It’s your turn to bring home the trophy—are you ready to join the hunt for the Silver King?!
