Ghost Trap Rodeo
January 9, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
A unique inshore fishing tournament series kicks off its 2021 season in Apalachicola Saturday, January 9. But instead of redfish and flounder, teams in this tournament are hunting for abandoned crab traps, plastics and other marine debris. The Ghost Trap Rodeo, hosted by the environmental group Ocean Aid 360, is an opportunity to help improve the fishery, have fun and compete for prizes. The FWC-permitted event is free to enter, family friendly and includes free lunch and a swag bag. Entrants compete for $25,000 in prizes in this six-event series which kicks off its 2021 season in Apalachicola. The four-hour tournament begins at 8am January 9, 2021 at the 10-foot Hole Boat Ramp in Apalachicola.
Ocean Aid 360’s Ghost Trap Rodeo Event Series is funded through the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Fishing for Energy program. The Tampa Bay-based tournament series is hosting the Ghost Trap Rodeos throughout the state in 2021 in cities including St. Petersburg, Tampa, Homasassa, Jacksonville and Cocoa Beach.
