World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament 2109 Boca Grande

The 2019 World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament Artwork was done by the talented Kelly Reark, Artist. This piece “Richest Memories” honors the teams that placed in the 2018 World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament. 1st Place: Blaze, 2nd place: Outtaline, 1st Fish Hooked and Released Day 1: Añejo, Last Fish Hooked and Released Day 1: Casuarina, 1st Fish Hooked and Released Day 2: Little Spook, Last Fish Hooked and Released Day 2: Hey, Moma! The Boca Grande Family Fleet makes this Tournament what it is. This past year was difficult to process with all of the loved ones lost. World’s Richest is honored to have some of our Setting Sons captured in this work. Thank you Kelly for all of your hard work, the spirit of the Boca Grande Pass is woven in every fiber of this painting.

Words from Kelly: “When I sit back in my chair on a drift of the pass, I often think about my previous tarpon experiences. Every single one was an event shared with friends and loved ones that I truly cherish. Fishing is as much about people and relationships as it is about the fish. Much love to all who are part of this incredible fishery that is Boca Grande. You are my “Richest Memories”.

The World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament would like to thank our Premier Sponsor, The Gasparilla Inn & Club, for hosting and presenting the 2019 World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament Captain’s Party at the Gasparilla Inn Beach Club. We thank you for your generous continued support of this 37-year Grande Tradition!

    I apologize for the time this has taken to make our final decision.After looking at the past years of our beloved Casting for Cats Womens fishing tournament our number of lady anglers has dropped each year, in order to keep up with our ever changing time Casting for Cats will be changing it’s format. Now we will include women anglers fishing with there Captain or there husband to become a team event We will still have a Grand Champion female angler but we will also have other division . We are hoping this change will bring in more anglers male and female to cover the cost we all incurred by having tournaments. With this new change we now will be challenged with a new set of rules to make it fun and fair for all. We feel we need to ”Paws” to make these changes . We have just booked the Islander Resort for Oct.17 and 18 2024 . Thank you for so many years of your support we greatly hope this change will keep this tournament here for many years to come.
