GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — The Mississippi Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo is offering the biggest prize in its 69-year history.
The event will be July 1-4 at Jones Park in Gulfport. Admission for all four days is $10 and daily admission is $5. Anglers fish for free.
Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo president Richard Valdez tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/295acWe) interest has doubled since the organization announced the five-figure prize.
Valdez said the extra money is drawing interest from anglers in Alabama and Louisiana.
