Port Aransas Boatmen’s Association  

 The Boatmen’s is a non-profit organization, made up of charter boat owners and operators dedicated to providing services to the community of Port Aransas, Texas, in the form of scholarships and youth related activities. The Boatmen have spent untold sums to support community projects in Port Aransas. Among other things, Boatmen help fund a summer reading program for kids; a children’s Christmas program; the Boy Scout troop in Port Aransas; and the local lighted boat parade each holiday season. And the Boatmen still sponsor the Deep Sea Roundup – the oldest fishing tournament on the Texas Gulf coast.


The Boatmen’s Association is the founder and sponsor of the annual Deep Sea Roundup. 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.

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