Fernandina Beach Fishing Rodeo
Kayak Division: We are welcoming kayak anglers with their own Division and their own pay-outs. See the rules for more details.
Expanded Payouts for the Rodeo Division: Instead of one cash prize, we now have 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for each of the eight (8) species: Cobia, Redfish, Flounder, Sea Trout, Sea Bass, Dolphin, Wahoo and Sheepshead.
Redfish with Most Spots: This prize is open to all anglers, regardless of which division you are fishing; the prize can be won by any tournament entrant. The category is exactly what the name suggests...the redfish brought in by any angler, dead or alive, in any division with the most spots, wins. The fish must physically be brought to the weigh-in by the deadline to be eligible for the prize. The number of spots will be counted and verified by the biologist. If the fish is brought to the biologist alive, you will be awarded one (1) extra spot. All live redfish will be immediately released.
Boat Number Raffle Drawings: The Rodeo Committee has been hard at work to obtain over $20,000 worth of raffle and silent auction prizes. There will be NUMEROUS prizes awarded at the Captain's Meeting on Friday, August 2, based on your boat number, just for entering!
Raffle and Silent Auction Prizes: Numerous prizes will be available for the silent auction and raffle drawing. The Silent Auction ends at 7:30 pm at the event on August 3...the Raffle Drawing will be held immediately following the Awards Ceremony at 7:00 pm on Saturday, August 3.
Tickets are a donation of $5 each or buy 4, get one free! (5 tickets for $20). If you'd like raffle tickets (need not be present to win), send your check or money order to NSFA at PO Box 16417, Fernandina Beach, FL 32035. We'll fill them out and drop them in the hopper for you!
