This year’s Bud Light Fishing Rodeo will take place June 21-24, 2019.
Cash awards and prizes await the angler who weighs in the top three fish in 20 different species. In addition to the rodeo, there is the Buick GMC Cadillac Pensacola King Mackerel Challenge with separate buy-in and cash and prizes awarded to the boat that brings in the biggest king mackerel. There is also the In-Shore Challenge and the Academy Sports and Outdoors Junior Rodeo.
There are new boundaries for the In-Shore Challenge – the Highway 59 Bridge in Orange Beach is the west boundary and the Mid-Bay Bridge in Destin is the east boundary. All boats participating in the In-Shore Challenge must catch their fish (red fish, trout, flounder) within those boundaries to be eligible for prizes. A polygraph test will be administered to the winning boat.
