Very excited to announce that South Again Charters has teamed up with Capt. Tyler Manning of Flat Out Charters and James Broxson of Broxson Outdoors to bring you the 1st Annual Navarre Fishing Rodeo!

The Rodeo will be held on June 1st and 2nd and will be a not for profit Family oriented tournament designed to highlight local Navarre Businesses and the amazing Navarre Fishery! We will be announcing sponsors and prizes very soon. The website is under construction as are all the details and tournament specifics.

Really looking forward to bringing a Rodeo to Navarre Beach and can't wait to see how big we can make it!!! As this is a not for profit tourney, all sponsorship money and entry fee money will be used to supply awesome prizes for each of the 20 different fish categories.

We also have a few other things in the works for Navarre Beach so we will keep you posted as they get started!

I will post all and any updates to this thread as we get things all lined up!

Capt. Brad

Looking forward to it!

Sounds good Brad. I messaged Tyler on FB a few days ago offering some input for kayakers. Keep me in mind for next year.

I am still going to fish it for sure, sounds like a good thing for Navarre!
Will do Brother~!

No kayak division is disappointing. I agree with JD... there would be a HUGE showing. As far as offshore fishing in Navarre Beach waters, we're usually the only ones out there. I'm willing to bet we can still make a pretty good showing and open some eyes.

Thats kinda what we are banking on Blackjeep... We need enough Kayak support , as well as Pier anglers and boat anglers to be able to get the funds to separate out next year and to be able to host different divisions.

This year we have to prove to the powers that be... that a tournament in Navarre can be big!

bummer that there's no yak division. Navarre is definitely THE spot for kayakers. I still may have to fish it and beat the boat guys!
Sorry about the Kayak division but we are working on putting something together for Kayaks!!! Looking at doing a really big Kayak Tourney this year in Navarre as well. Like I said earlier, this is just to show the County heads that we have a big enough base group of anglers to start building from!

Tons of stuff to come in the near future if this works out!!!!

I think the biggest hurdle will be getting folks to bring fish all the way to Navarre to weigh from the passes. I'm in hope many others are also!
That is for sure tje major hurdle and probably why no one has put on a Navarre Rodeo yet. Fish can be brought to the scales by vehicle, so we hope that makes it easier!

That's what I'm talking about! After fishing offshore all day I'd be hard pressed to get all the way to Navarre to weigh in and back to the launch. This news just made my life more enjoyable!

Brad, I dont know how I missed this post.

I can assure you that a Kayak Tournament in Navarre would be HUGE, at least relatively speaking.

The one big kayak tournament we have here is the GCKFA tournament and its only once a year and last year they drew very close to 200 anglers from all around the region.

With Navarre quickly becoming the hot spot for kayak anglers I dont see why a kayak tournament with a little promotion and some good sponsors couldnt get at least half of the GCKFA tournament!

Of course Im a little biased. Its my hope we, local kayak anglers, can convince the powers that be to put an artificial reef complex, even if it is just 10-20 reef balls, about a mile off of Navarre beach. It would be HUGE and draw in yakkers from all over because unlike the complexes off of Destin and Pickens, we wouldnt have to compete with a million boats and constantly worry about getting ran over!

Keep me posted man, I will do anything and everything I can to help out with promoting kayak fishing in Navarre!!
