Time to Plan for the Destin Fishing Rodeo

October is a very special month in Destin. We celebrate the bounty of fish in the Gulf of Mexico with the annual Destin Fishing Rodeo. This is not an event that will be canceled. With plenty of open gulf and open air, it would be a great time to join the fishing fun. This will be the 73nd year for the rodeo to be held in Destin area waters.

Held the entire month of October, hundreds of anglers will leave the harbor each day in hopes of bringing back a winner at the daily weigh-ins. You can now go online to the Destin Fishing Rodeo website to find a listing of registered boats. You can also find information about events planned for children under the “Rodeo Fun” tab.

The artwork and t-shirts issued for the Rodeo each year are always a popular souvenir. The store for t-shirts, hats, and posters will soon be available in the online rodeo store. 

If you are planning to fish in the Destin Fishing Rodeo, we can help you line up a day trip with some of the very best in Destin fishing. We have partnered with our favorite charter boat captains to bring you a fishing trip of a lifetime.


It’s also a great time to line-up lodging for October. It’s a popular month in Destin – especially with milder temperatures. Check with our lodging partner, Southern Vacation Rentals, for availability and any special rates.
