Established in 1948, The Destin Fishing Rodeo is the ultimate fishing tournament for saltwater anglers of all ages. It takes place everyday - October 1st through October 31st. The Rodeo is FREE to angler's fishing aboard a registered boat in the Rodeo, with weigh-ins everyday on the docks at A.J.'s Seafood & Oyster Bar from 10 am until 7 pm. This long-standing Destin tradition has become a favorite for both tourists and locals with over 30,000 anglers competing throughout the month of October.
Not only are they competing for the thrill of landing the "big one", but they have added incentive with over $100,000 awarded in cash and prizes which are awarded daily, weekly and for overall tournament rankings. Virtually every gamefish is recognized with awards during the Rodeo. Whether you're trolling inshore for King Mackerel, offshore for Marlin and Sailfish, or fishing the deep bottoms for Red Snapper and Grouper, you'll be in the running for prizes.
