FLORA-BAMA FISHING RODEO
The Flora-Bama Fishing Rodeo is the ‘Every Mans” fishing rodeo! Just like the Lounge you don’t have to be a VIP to fish with us. Categories will range from Catfish to Bill Fish and everything in between. They will be giving away top of the line prizes I can promise you that! The tournament will be held at the Flor-Bama Yacht Club across the street from the world famous Flora-Bama Lounge and Package Store. The FBFR is a 3-day Captains Choice tournament with anglers competing for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in 30 categories including red snapper. Accompanying the tournament will be a three day beach party and awards ceremony that will include daily weigh-ins with fish viewing, live music, great food and hospitality done in true Flora-Bama fashion. Not only will the FBFR be one of the premier events on the Gulf Coast. A portion of the proceeds from the tournament will be donated to the Operation Reconnect, a charity for Combat Veterans.
This event will be held June 10, 2016 – June 12, 2016. The tickets are $40.00 for the adult division and $20.00 for kids 12 and under competing in the youth division. Kids can fish up with an adult-division ticket.
