SavetheTarpon.com was launched only eight months ago as a platform for anglers and community members to speak out and demand accountability from those whose actions are threatening the sustainability of the tarpon fishery of Boca Grande Pass and Charlotte Harbor.  Since then, we have evolved into a Florida not-for-profit organization representing the combined voices of more than 12,000 people world-wide who have joined the effort to protect and preserve this historically and culturally significant public resource.

The Save the Tarpon Shindig,  on Sunday, March 3, 2013, from 2 to 6 pm,  is an event for us all to come together as we celebrate our solidarity and dedication to protecting the future of tarpon fishing at Boca Grande.  We will review our achievements thus far, and look to the future as we plan our 2013 successes.  It will be a time for supporters to rally, meet the Save the Tarpon Directors, bump elbows with most of the local captains and community members as well as enjoy the company of a few special guests.

It’s completely free to attend and open to the public, so bring the kids to this family-friendly event.

Complimentary food and beverages will be served, including Budweiser products!

And, of course, we will be raising some funds for our 2013 projects (and we have some GREAT ones in the works).  So make sure you are there for the live auction featuring tarpon fishing charters from highly respected captains including Capt. Tommy Locke, Capt. Rhett Morris and Capt. Willie Mills, a seaplane oyster trip with Capt. Mark Futch, and a red snapper offshore fishing charter with Capt. Tom McLaughlin.

There will also be an incredible silent auction full of fine dining, exclusive lodging packages for a quick getaway, fine art, jewelry, and much much more. As the lists is finalized we will be posting more info here.  But trust us when we say, you won’t want to miss it!
