Happy New Year!

The 2014 Awards TableAs 2014 comes to a close, the STR board would like to take a moment to thank all of our sponsors and anglers for their continued support. 2014 has been a great year, with the highest tournament participation since 2010. We had a great time at the Captain’s Kickoff Party followed by 10 weeks of competitive catch-and-release tarpon fishing, and we can’t wait to do it all again in 2015!

First and foremost, we’d like to thank the 2014 Sponsors, including Bollman Boating, Gandy Bait & Tackle, Owen & Sons Marine, Pets in the City and Bob Lee’s Tire Company, as well as all our other sponsors.
