Fishing Rodeo Will Take Place At Rice Pavilion

There will be a deep sea fishing rodeo in Gulfport this year. After meeting with city representatives, rodeo committee president Chuck Dedeaux says the debris will be removed from Rice Pavilion, where the rodeo is held, and power will be hooked up.

Dedeaux says the sticking point is who will pay for the fireworks display on July 4th. The rodeo used to pay, but in the last few years, Dedeaux says the chamber put up the money.

The Mississippi Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo will run from July 1-4.
