The 66th annual Empire South Pass Tarpon Rodeo was a resounding success, said Jeff Edgecombe and Mitch Jurisich, chairman and co-chairman (respectively) of the committee responsible for organizing the event. “The fishing this year was great,” Jurisich said. The weather could have been more cooperative, he noted, after a storm with heavy rain, winds, and lightning swept through Saturday afternoon. Still, everyone stayed dry under the tent, and all boats made it back to the marina safely.
