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 fisherpersons of all ages and skill levels.  Deep Sea Roundup draws over 800 contestants annually.

JULY 12th – 15th, 2018

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 spirt the PABA will hold the 2018 83rd Deep Sea Roundup. The Deep Sea Roundup is the oldest fishing tournament on the Gulf Coast. Because of Hurricane Harvey, there will be some modifications to the tournament for this year.  Registration day will be Thursday July 12th.  The Fishing Day and Piggy Perch contest will be on Friday and Saturday July 13th & 14th.  Awards and the Bill Horn Fish Fry will be on Sunday July 15.  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 Seas Roundup Facebook page and sign up for updates on our website .  Harvey could not thwart our fishing spirt and we invite all fishermen inshore and off shore to join us and share our fishing spirt.  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 Frankie Eicholz, Chairperson, 361-701-7711 or by email  If there are businesses or individuals who would like to be sponsors or donate to this great tournament, please contact the chairperson.
