Ding Darling Wildlife Society and Doc Fords restaurant have joined forces for a tarpon tournament to be held May 5. All entry fees will be distributed as tournament awards, but sponsorship donations will help support the work of the wildlife society. With the mild winter we had, the Gulf waters are warming up quickly and there are reports of tarpon being caught already. Beginning of May should be prime time for tarpon. This is the first time they have tried a tarpon tournament like this so hopefully all the fisherman will get out there and support them.
