On June 4-6, the Cut Off Fishing Club will again host its annual saltwater rodeo on Grand Isle. The event is a three-day tournament held at Bridgeside Marina and is open to the public.
In addition to the live music, auctions, food and door prizes, the rodeo will feature 9 adult and 3 children’s categories. A “Best Fisherman” and “Best Fisherette” award will also be given.
Adult categories are bull red, rat red, speckled trout, flounder, mangrove snapper, red snapper, cobia, drum, and redfish closest to 21 lbs.
Children (age 12 and under) may weigh in hardhead catfish, bronze croaker, or pin fish.
Fishing tickets cost $20 and may be purchased at The Tin Shed or at Bridgeside Marina, or from any club member.
In 2014, the Cut Off Fishing Club proudly gave back over $4000 from tournament proceeds to organizations and individuals in Lafourche and Grand Isle.
