Flora-Bama Fishing Rodeo - The 'Funnest' Fishing Tournament on the Gulf Coast

The Flora-Bama Fishing Rodeo is the "Every Man's" 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. Heck we'll probably see who can catch the biggest crab before it's all said and done. With that said we will be giving away top of the line prizes I can promise you that!

The tournament will be held at the Flora-Bama Yacht Club across the street from the world famous Flora-Bama Lounge and Package Store. The FBFR is a 3-day Captain's Choice tournament with anglers competing for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in 38 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 area, live music, great food, and hospitality done in true Flora-Bama fashion!

A portion of the FBFR ticket sales will be donated to Operation ReConnect - A non profit organization geared to providing combat veterans with well-deserved family vacations.
