Maveric Boat Group Southwest Owners Tournament Tarpon Lodge 2023
For over 30 years, MBG boat owners and their families have been coming together to share good food, fishing, and friendship. The charming Tarpon Lodge located in Pineland, FL will play host to this year’s Southwest Florida Owner’s Tournament for Maverick, Hewes, and Pathfinder owners and their guests. Located directly on the Pine Island Sound, the Tarpon Lodge is as well known for its proximity to world class fishing as it is for its exceptional dining.
We look forward to another weekend of great fishing, food, and fun with our fellow MBG brand owners!
