Attention fisherman! Are you the best angler in Southwest Louisiana? Can you hook a fish without even trying? Are you ready to show off your skills?

Then get ready for a great event that not only gets you out on the water to wet a line but also supports a couple of terrific causes. The United Way of Southwest Louisiana will be holding the Inaugural Reelin' for Warriors Fishing Rodeo here in Lake Charles in August.

The event will feature two-person teams on boats only and it is open to all ages. Entry fee is $150 per team and the event will take place at the Calcasieu Point Landing located at 3955 Henry Pugh Blvd in Lake Charles, LA.

Fishing rodeo

The Reelin' for Warriors Fishing Rodeo will be on Saturday, August 12th, 2023 and fishing will get underway at 5:00 am. The Weigh station will be open starting at 2:00 pm and once that is all complete, they will have a family-style awards ceremony at Calcasieu Point Landing.

Denise Durel, President and CEO of the United Way of Southwest Louisiana said,

“This is such a natural partnership because both are responding to the complex issues veterans face today. At the same time, both nonprofits want to see a growth in events where families can spend more time together outdoors,” said Denise Durel, President and CEO, United Way of Southwest Louisiana. “It’s the perfect way to teach children about giving back while spending time together and having fun.”

So get your team together and help raise money for the Southwest Louisiana Veterans Association and the United Way of Southwest Louisiana. For full details about the event or to register your team, CLICK HERE.
