Flora-Bama Fishing Rodeo - The 'Funnest' Fishing Tournament on the Gulf Coast


The Flora-Bama Fishing Rodeo is the "Every Man's" fishing rodeo! Just like the Lounge you don't have to be a VIP to fish with us.


Categories will range from Catfish to Bill Fish and everything in-between. Heck we'll probably see who can catch the biggest crab before it's all said and done. With that said we will be giving away top of the line prizes I can promise you that!


See more details below:

The Flora-Bama is not only the Worlds Most Famous Beach Bar, our live music is legendary. With 5 different entertainment areas there is something for everyone. Whether you like country, dance, beach music or folk guitarist, there is always something playing at the Flora-Bama. See the list of UPCOMING BANDS HERE.

While at the Flora-Bama the Oyster Bar is the cure for the munchies. We have oysters seasoned and raw, Royal Red shrimp, fantastic burgers, nachos, chicken tender baskets, grouper tacos and much more. The Oyster Bar is a must when you visit the Flora-Bama. SEE OUR FULL MENU
