2024 Kids Summer Fishing Rodeo

The Coastal Conservation Association Mississippi (CCAMS) and the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources are excited to present the Junior Jubilee Kids Fishing Rodeo. This unique event runs from Memorial Day Weekend to Labor Day and concludes with a grand awards banquet in September. The fishing rodeo is a great opportunity for children aged 3 to 15 to participate in over 100 place prizes and win exciting door prizes totaling over $40,000.00. Fishing is restricted to Mississippi Waters South of I-10!

Beyond just having fun fishing, this event aims to foster a sense of environmental responsibility in our young ones and encourage them to develop a love for the Gulf, our most precious natural resource. We also want to provide opportunities for families to fish together and allow children who have never fished before to learn. Our goal is to create healthy competition between peers and within each child to gain a better understanding of fishing while rewarding and acknowledging all who participate.

Registration is easy and the entire event is at no cost to our young anglers. Its simple, go to the QR code and get ready to fish!!

Return 'Em Right


Return 'Em Right has been in development for some time and is a program to SAVE FISH. Most offshore or even inshore anglers have had the experience of releasing a fish (for whatever reason) and seeing it float off belly-up or be attacked by an unwelcome predator lurking nearby. Research has clearly shown that the simple method of air release from the fish is not working at depths. Now you can join a program devised to address this problem and get FREE GEAR to do so in the process.

CCA Mississippi will release further information on RETURN 'EM RIGHT as we move forward but for now, go to the website  and follow the steps to meet the training and then be sent your gear.

With Red Snapper season just about on us, we need to conserve our reef fish resources and this is a great start.
