One cast at a time, the ABC of Louisiana’s Annual Fishing Rodeo has been “Reeling” in anglers for years! Although the anglers who participate each year are thrilled when they catch the big fish, ABC shares the delight in knowing that this event has caught the attention of its members and has kept their interest each year! May 28-30, 2015 was an exciting time as over 300 anglers traveled to Grand Isle, LA to participate in the 2015 ABC of Louisiana’s “REEL DEAL” Fishing Rodeo. The Reel experts took the water and returned to showcase their trophy fish at the Sand Dollar Marina Pavilion with some fish weighing in over 48lbs. You couldn’t miss the ABC Members cruising down the Southwest waters, as many could be spotted wearing their neon yellow rodeo shirts and ABC visors. Many thanks to the ABC staff for their hard work, and to the 2015 Fishing Rodeo Committee led by Chair, Terry Hoyle of Bancorp South Insurance. This event couldn’t be “Tackled” without the right bait – better known as our SPONSORS! ABC extends a heartfelt thank-you to the 2015 “Reel Deal” Fishing Rodeo Sponsors for their generous contributions which made this year’s rodeo the “Best Catch” for our members and a “Reel Success”!!
