JULY 9th – 12th, 2020

The Port Aransas Boatmen (PABA) are excited to announce they will again host the Deep Sea Roundup (DSR).  Hurricane Harvey roared into the Coastal Bend and has left its mark on Port Aransas but with volunteer help and community fishing spirit the PABA will hold the 2020 85th Deep Sea Roundup. The Deep Sea Roundup is the oldest fishing tournament on the Gulf Coast.  Registration day will be Thursday July 9th.  The Fishing Day and Piggy Perch contest will be on Friday and Saturday July 10th & 11th.  Awards and the Bill Horn Fish Fry will be on Sunday July 12th.  Advance Registration has commenced.  The fish categories will remain the same following the Texas and Federal fishing guidelines.  Mark your calendars now to attend, support the community spirit and fish in the tournament.  This is a tournament for all who wish to participate -- men, women, and youth with emphasis on fishing fun and excitement...

Keep in touch with the DSR by following us on Deep Sea Roundup Facebook page and sign up for updates on our website www.deepsearoundup.com .  Harvey could not thwart our fishing spirit and we invite all anglers inshore and off shore to join us and share our fishing spirit.  The monies from the Deep Sea Roundup are used to fund our scholarships for community students and support community youth activities.

For more information please contact Ryan Thurman, Chairperson, 361-806-7678 or by email chairperson@deepsearoundup.com.  If there are businesses or individuals who would like to be sponsors or donate to this great tournament, please contact the chairperson.

Deep Sea Roundup includes Offshore, Bay Surf, Fly Fishing and Junior Division plus a free Piggy Perch contest for the little guys and gals.

Whether registering to fish the Deep Sea Roundup through advanced-registration or registration at the door, you will be given a goodie bag, a keepsake personalized with  "85th Deep Sea Roundup"....

The “Roundup” is considered the best value among the Texas Coastal Tournaments!

Join us for this Historic Fishing Tournament and THE BEST FISHING IN TEXAS.

The Deep Sea Roundup began in 1932 as the Tarpon Roundup and has grown from a handful of Port Aransas fishing and hunting guides pitting their skills against one another to the largest family fishing tournament on the Texas Gulf Coast.  The Roundup attracts anglers of all ages and skill levels.  Deep Sea Roundup draws over 800 contestants annually.
