Destin Fishing Rodeo
The Destin Rodeo is the ultimate fishing tournament for anglers of all kinds. More than 30,000 anglers compete throughout the month of October
for over $100,000 in prizes ranging from trophies and merchandise to bonds. 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 daily, weekly and overall prizes in
men's, women's and junior anglers' categories. Virtually every gamefish is recognized with awards during the Rodeo.
It's free to anglers who fish aboard boats registered in the Rodeo. That's right, there's no fee to fish the tournament so you can come down
anytime during October and join in the fun.
The weather in October is usually just great, with sunny skies and moder· ate sea breezes. Average high temperartures are about 80", average
lows are 60". The water temperature is a mild 81" and there is an average of only 3.0" of rain during the entire month.
