Editor’s Note: This week we welcome guest blogger, Mike Johnson. Mike is an avid fisherman in Destin.
As summer ends and fall begins, here in Destin, we prepare for one of our oldest traditions. That tradition is the Destin Fishing Rodeo.
For 67 years the rodeo has been one of Florida’s premier events for anglers of all ages. Lasting a full month, the Destin Fishing Rodeo gives participants a chance to win their share of over $100,000 in awarded cash and prizes. The contest is free to enter for anglers fishing upon a registered vessel and $25 for anglers over the age of 14 who wish to fish from a pier or bridge.
The contest routinely produces some of the most prized catches of the season. There will even be activities and events just for young anglers to take advantage of. For those not in the tournament, bring the family to see the daily weigh-ins held at A.J.’s Seafood and Oyster Bar.
