GREETINGS FROM OUR TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR
Wow, Panama City Beach, Bay County, and the surrounding area has been eagerly awaiting this Fishing Tournament. Over the past few years, I have had the privilege of talking with several Boat Captains and First Mates regarding fishing tournaments and lack thereof in our area. Most people remembered the Billfish annual tournament and how much fun that tournament was. Over the course of several conversations we quickly discovered a demand for a sizeable fishing tournament for this area in a BIG WAY! Following all the chatter we decided to get a little more serious and make it happen!
We are excited to bring to you the PCB Fishing Rodeo. This tournament is a 3 weekend, 17-day event with 2 weigh inns daily from 10am-2pm and 4pm-7pm from Sep 22nd – Oct 8th, 2023. This year will include 11 species of fish and 7 divisions with species tailored for each division. The PCB Fishing Rodeo allows, and encourages a variety of anglers to participate. Whether you’re fishing from the shore, on a kayak, paddleboard, personal boat, or you and your family decide to charter one of the many Federal and State boats registered in this tournament, we made sure to keep you in mind. There will be daily entertainment with great food. Patches Food Truck, That’s what Cheese Said, and Gelato Love will be our onsite food sponsors. Legendary marine will have a few of their awesome boats on display, and Florida Water Sports will be displaying multiple different types of tackle and gear.
Come out to Capt. Anderson’s Marina located at 5550 N Lagoon Drive Panama City Beach, FL 32408 from September 22, 2022 – October 8, 2023 and be apart of the 3rd annual PCB Fishing Rodeo.
