Mossy Oak Fishing is proud to announce the sponsorship of the largest fishing tournament in the world, the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo.
Founded in 1929, the fishing rodeo now attracts over 3000 anglers and 75,000 spectators. It is located on Dauphin Island, Alabama (N30 15'31, 90" W88 06'47.78). The 85th Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo will be held July 20-22, 2018. 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 ADSFR is proud to award a special prize of a 22’ Contender Boat wrapped in Mossy Oak Elements Agua with a 250 h.p. Yamaha outboard motor and Sport Trail Trailer, as part of this year’s rodeo.
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.
As part of its affiliation with the Rodeo, Mossy Oak will be the title sponsor of the event leaderboard and the Liar’s Contest. This contest has been held at the start of the ADSFR weekend every year since 1930. This year’s contest will be held on Thursday, July 19, 2018. Pre-judging will begin at 6:30 PM (local time), with the finals set to start at 7:30 PM (local time). The competition is open to Rodeo ticket holders and will be held on the AutoNation of Mobile Stage. Contestants should limit their tales to five minutes.
Rodeo attendees are encouraged to beat the heat by visiting the Mossy Oak Chill Zone where there will be ongoing giveaways during the entire event.
Mossy Oak launched its first fishing pattern, Elements Agua, at the ICAST show in July 2017. Since then, Mossy Oak has built the Mossy Oak Fishing Team to eight of the top anglers in the world in both saltwater and freshwater categories. In addition Elements Agua has been named the official pattern of B.A.S.S., Major League Fishing and the Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series. Mossy Oak Fishing has also stepped up to sponsor bass fishing competitions for anglers from the high school level up.
