The Manteo Rotary Club’s 1st Annual “Inshore Slam” Fishing Tournament

Rockfish Rodeo Fishing Tournament

October 3-4, 2014

Dear Friends and Supporters,

The Manteo Rotary Club has held the “Rockfish Rodeo” for the past 16 years. Your support has allowed us to provide over $250,000 in scholarships to deserving young people in Dare County.

Due to the decline in the striper populations, and after much consideration, we decided to reformat our
tournament. It will now be the “INSHORE SLAM”. Participants will compete for the largest fish in four categories; stripers, flounder, puppy drum, and speckled trout. There will also be a single “Grand Slam” award for the individual who weighs in fish from at least three of the four categories, with the highest total weight.

Please take a moment to browse our website. Here you will find updated fishing reports, pictures of last year’s winners and participants and information about the recent fishing reports and prize payouts.


The tournament will be held the first weekend in October with the expectation of more fish and warmer
weather. Most locals will agree that early October is one of their favorite times on the Outer Banks.
The tournament will be held on the Manteo waterfront, with docking available, at the Maritime Museum.

Bring the Family

Our tournament is a family event. We encourage everyone to share the fun and excitement of the
tournament with your spouse, friends, family, and especially make it a point to “take a kid fishing”.
Prizes and trophies will be awarded in adult, women’s and youth divisions.

Food, Beverages, & Entertainment

As is our tradition, we will also hold our famous silent auction with great prizes and gifts available for all
tastes and budgets. Our Saturday night awards banquet will be fun for all with live music and a pig
pickin by Chef Paul Mann & Crew. Remember, it’s about having fun and supporting a great cause.


Come join us October 3-4, 2014 at the Manteo Waterfront.
Tight lines, and fair winds,

Bobby Harrell
