The 12th Annual Orange Beach October Fishing Rodeo will take place October 1st though the 31st. The tournament this year will take on a new look which more closely matches the highly successful Orange Beach Red Snapper World Championship.
Anglers will compete in 5 offshore categories and 2 inshore categories. The top 3 places in gag grouper, amberjack, king mackerel, red snapper, triggerfish, redfish, and speckled trout will be awarded $2,000, $1,000 and $500 respectively. The total purse will amount to $24,500. Orange Beach October Fishing Rodeo organizers hope the increased payouts for top places will draw a larger crowd of anglers to the event.
