The family-friendly event is a catch-and-release shore fishing tournament for anglers targeting the largest bass. The day also includes the Battle for the Bass student fishing tournament and Boats on the Bayou non-motorized tournament on Bayou St. John. You don’t have to fish to enjoy the Fishtival! Bring the entire family, and while your angler casts around City Park, you can catch a good time at the Fishtival. There will be a DJ playing music, activities for all ages, great raffles, and a host of educational exhibitors.
Big Bass Rodeo and Fishtival Details
BIG BRASS RODEO
The traditional Big Bass Rodeo is a bank-fishing only event but in 2014, we added a new division called Boats on the Bayou for kayakers and other non-motorized vessels to fish for various species in Bayou St. John. In 2016, Battle for the Bass was presented by Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries as a school competition for 7th through 12th grade students.
You don’t have to fish to enjoy the Fishtival! Bring the entire family, and while your angler casts around City Park, you can catch a good time at the Fishtival. There will be a DJ playing music, activities for all ages, great raffles, and a host of educational exhibitors. The Fishtival highlights many of the state’s fishing resources with interactive demonstrations and information.
