WALA-TV Brings You...


The Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo.

Who needs network television when you can have the regional delights of local events.  A quick search on Google reveals
"Sharks, Snapper, Stingray, and much more are coming to the shores as the anglers bring home their prizes for the 78th year of the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo.


The rodeo started back in 1929. Local businessmen organized the tournament along with the Alabama State Game and fish commission. Tickets were just five bucks. That covered prizes and also gave you a place to sleep!


The tournament has grown from a nice sized fishing tournament to perhaps the Guinness Record Holder for largest fishing tournament in the world! They are hoping to set that mark this year. More than 100,000 people make the trek to Dauphin Island for the event. Thousands of which participate in the contest"
