The world famous Tarpon Lodge in Bokeelia on Pine Island, Florida will host the Kayak Fishing ClassicS’ Pine Island Classic scheduled for July 13. The famous lodge was the lodging host last year and this year they will host the entire tournament event.

The contestants in the Classic will compete for their share of the $10,000 in Sponsor Gear Prizes provided by the many fantastic sponsors of the Kayak Fishing ClassicS. The anglers will be fishing for tarpon, redfish, snook and trout, all of which the lodge is famous for. In fact the fishing in the waters around the famous local is considered to be of world class supporting large numbers of the selected species for this event.

The historic lodge offers a very cozy rustic feel with ocean views from many of the rooms. The restaurant affords a historic elegance that fits very comfortably with the causal sporting attire of boaters and anglers alike. There is of course a pool to cool off in while watching the tarpon roll just off shore in the beautiful sunsets. It is safe to say that is one of our favorite places to hold a tournament.
