    Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo 2017

    The Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo, a Project of the Mobile Jaycees, was held July 21- 23 down on Dauphin Island in Alabama. The fishing rodeo was founded in
    1929 and now attracts over 3,000 anglers and 75,000 spectators.

    The ADSFR is a 3-day Captain's Choice tournament and a Southern Kingfish Association (SKA) sanctioned event. The total awards package is valued up to one million dollars in cash and prizes and anchored by a boat, motor, and trailer packages.

    The 3-day event features 30 categories with prizes awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in all categories. One Master Angler is also awarded along with cash prizes for King Mackerel, Speckled Trout and Big Game Jackpots.

    The ADSFR has donated over $200,000 to the University of South Alabama Department of Marine Sciences and annually funds academic scholarships.

    Lots of media coverage. I think that is Dr. Bob Shipp being interviewed. He's a local marine biologist and professor.

    One of the teams. Looks like this bunch has some serious sponsors.
