Congratulations to the winners of the Gasparilla Island Kids Classic! First place was won by Team Gasparilla Outfitters on the Boca Blue with Capt. Sandy Melvin with two releases.
The results are in, and with a total of 49 tarpon confirmed caught.
The guys on Team Tracy Lynn with Capt. Willie Mills have won the 2012 World's Richest Tarpon Tournament with five tarpon caught and released.
The excitement is building as the final preparations are being made for Tarpon Week in Boca Grande, Florida where World Class Art will meet World Class Fishing this year. The schedule for Tarpon Week is full of fun and excitement, starting on Thursday with The World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament, May 17-18, and continuing into the weekend with the Tarpon Festival and Carroll Swayze’s Boca Grande Invitational Art Festival on Saturday and Sunday, May 19-20, in downtown Boca Grande.
The Munchkins kids performed their annual Mother’s Day program on Friday, May 11 and presented their moms and grandmothers with a little surprise as well.
A Mother’s Day questionnaire asked things like, “What is your mom made of?” and “Why is she special to you?” Here are some of their answers:
Who will win these trophies in the World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament of 2012? The first place trophy will go to the team leader, and each of the second-place-team members will receive plaques. Both were created by J.W. Wells Trophies. The winning team will also receive silver rings created and donated by Barbara Anne’s Jewelry.
Don’t forget, of course, the winning purse worth tens of thousands of dollars.
Good luck to all the anglers!
