The 2014 Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament was held this past weekend in Georgetown SC with beautiful weather on tap and excellent fishing. We had a record number of participants(25 Boats) and a record number of tarpon caught with a total of 15 releases. Other than the excellent fishing, the highlight of the tournament was a 115lb tarpon that Capt. Newman Weaver(www.kingfisherguideservice.com) caught on fly. Thanks to all anglers, attendees, and sponsors. For more information on the Lowcountry Tarpon Tournament visit www.lowcountrytarpon.com.
