Chris Speary Wins the 88th Annual Sarasota Tarpon Tournament

Congratulations to Chris Speary winner of the 2018 Sarasota Tarpon Tournament. Chris’s 33.5″ catch in Saturday’s fish-off was enough to get his name engraved on the silver trophy.

Chris, pictured here with Event Chairman Mason Tush to his right and this year’s Tarpon Queen Lori Colado had earned his spot in the Fish-Off by placing 1st in Week 2 of the Tournament.

Gabor Torok, who had 4 total catches for the day, finished second with a catch measuring 32″. Third place went to Kayden Peters followed by Jim Lopez in fourth, Joe Peters in fifth and Joe Speary in finished sixth place. The final 4 positions were awarded by default using the Weekly Results.

The Tournament Committee would like to thank all our anglers and sponsors and remind everyone to please mark your calendars for the Awards Banquet to be held Friday night, July 20th, at Gold Coast Eagle Distributing in Sarasota. We’ll be celebrating all our Anglers with cold beers, good food, raffles, and a night that looks to be a lot of fun so don’t miss it.
