"Ding" Darling & Doc Ford's Tarpon Tournament
 
May 5th is the opening of this tourney. The purse is 100% of all $100.00 entry fees.
If you're a flats fishing boat captain around Key West and can catch a tarpon on a fly, this would be an opportunity for you to prove it:thmbup:

Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille in Ft. Meyers will be the place where the captains' dinner takes place the evening before the tourney opens.

If you've got the grit and wanna show it, "Ding" Darling & Doc Ford's Tarpon Tournament is where you want to be May 5th.

The guides in Key West go all the way to Sanibel / Ft Meyers area to fsh in a tournament? Really?

I am not sure where this tournament is taking place. I have been to Doc Ford's on Sanibel and to Ding Darling. If this tourney is in Ding Darling I am not sure where people will be launching from. An FYI from my friend who called to tell me that the "Wildlife Drive" will be closed from May 1 through September for road surfacing.

A quick google search for the US Fish & Wildlife on 12-20-2012 will bring up the news release of the closure.
