Our Mission

The Suncoast Tarpon Roundup provides a ten week, 24/7 fishing tournament which promotes sportsmanship, research, and education.   

The goal of the Suncoast Tarpon Roundup is to encourage family and community involvement, enhance the awareness of the tarpon fishing available in our own back yard and bring together people from all circles of the community to provide a safe, educational and entertaining forum to compete and enjoy the rewards of Tarpon fishing in the Tampa Bay area.   

The Suncoast Tarpon Roundup further recognizes and appreciates that children are the future of this tournament and energetically promotes the philosophy of “Take a Child Fishing.”  We exist so anglers can enjoy themselves today, but more importantly, so that future anglers may be afforded the same opportunities we are privileged to enjoy.
