When we are close to the registration of 250 anglers, an official announcement will be made through our website (www.navarrefishingrodeo.com) and also through our official Facebook page. Like our official Facebook page and also check out our rodeo website for the most up-to-date information. If it doesn’t say we are close to being out of t-shirts – then we still have them.

I am a kayaker, but I like the variety of fish in the open division. If I register as a kayaker, and catch a Pompano, is that fish not going to win a prize?

No, you will not win a prize because you registered as a kayaker.  The kayak division has only six eligible fish, and the open division has sixteen eligible species of fish. You can register in two divisions. 

I am a kayaker, and I’d like all of my options on species of fish. What are my options?

If you register in the Open Division and also register and pay to be in the Kayak Division, you can fish both divisions. One Captain’s Bag per Angler even if registered in Open and Kayak divisions. However, one fish cannot win more than one category.  For example: If you had a large Snapper and when you weighed in, someone already had a larger snapper in the Kayak division – you could decide to enter your fish in the Open Division. Fish registered for a SLAM cannot be registered in open or Kayak as well. Fish registered in Open or Kayak cannot count towards a SLAM.

I’m not a “Captain” of a boat. Should I attend the Captain’s Meeting?

The Captain’s meeting – is a euphemism for an “angler” meeting. Basically – we dub everyone with a paid ticket -  a captain. This year, 2020, the Captain’s meeting is virtual. We will send everyone a link to the “Captain’s Meeting” video the week of the rodeo.

Do I need to be present to win at the Awards Ceremony on Sunday?

No, but we will only hold prizes for 15 days after the event.

Does my rodeo ticket cover my admission to the Navarre Beach fishing pier?

No.  However, the Santa Rosa County Commissioners declared rodeo weekend – admission free. You can thank them by emailing them at bocc@santarosa.fl.gov.
