If you think you can catch a bigger mangrove snapper than Morten Andersen or a heavier drum than Dalton Hilliard, you’ll get your chance Saturday during Stan Brock’s Black & Gold Classic at Grand Isle.
And in addition to competing against several former Saints and ex-NFL players, you’ll be supporting two military non-profit organizations in the process: the Green Beret and Navy Seal Foundations.
Several former Saints players, including Brock, Hokie Gajan, Bobby Hebert, Elois Grooms, Derland Moore and Jon Stinchcomb, as well as several other ex-NFL players, are scheduled to compete in the rodeo on Saturday, which features an inshore and offshore division.
In the inshore division, 1st place through 3rd place, plus big fish, will be awarded in five categories: red fish, speckled trout, flounder, sheepshead and drum.
In the offshore division, 1st place through 3rd place, plus big fish, will be awarded in three categories: amberjack, lemon fish and mangrove snapper.
The fishing rodeo is open to the public and starts at 6 a.m. with scales closing at 2 p.m. Entry fee is $25 per angler, and you can register here or in person at Bridge Side Marina.
Additionally on Saturday, there will be a crazy quail target shoot from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a concert featuring Category 6 taking place at 6 p.m.
