It’s time for one of the most popular events on the Gulf Coast, the 68th Annual Destin Fishing Rodeo! For the entire month of October, anglers from all over the world come to compete for over $100,000 in cash and prizes during this fishing tournament!  Weigh-ins are held every day from 10am to 7pm behind AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar on the Destin Harbor. Everyone is welcome to walk the harbor come see the catch of the day!

If you would like to participate in the 2016 Destin Fishing Rodeo, there are plenty of ways to do it! You can fish from the shore, a pier, a jetty, a bridge, a kayak, paddleboard, a private boat, or a charter boat! Just be sure to register and pay the appropriate entry fees at least 24 hours before the weigh-in. Also, if you sign up with a boat that is already registered, then you can fish under their registration!

Since 1948, the Destin Fishing Rodeo has been a local tradition and brings in visitors from all over the world to fish the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. If you would like to compete in this year’s tournament, we have some amazing beach vacation homes in Destin offered at great fall prices! In fact, you can save up to 20% off when you stay in a Southern beach home or condo this October. The Fishing Rodeo goes on the whole month, so you still have plenty of time to reel in that big catch. Call today!
