Contestants fish the Gulf waters for days, competing for cash and prizes in 30 categories of both saltwater and freshwater fish. In previous years, records for tuna, shark, and flounder have been broken at the Mississippi Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo. The fishing rodeo attracts an average of 50,000 people every year, and even made the cover of Sports Illustrated!
