Summer is coming to a close, but don’t save those fishing poles. The St. James Boat Club will be holding their “Annual Jr. Choupique Rodeo” on Aug. 6, on the Blind River Point Area and Boat Launch Areas at 39180 US 61 Hwy at the Scenic Blind River, which is located in St. James Parish, just outside of the Town of Gramercy.

All participants, 0 – 15 years old, male or female, are eligible to compete in this fishing rodeo, but must be accompanied by an adult or guardian. The fishing times start at 9 A.M. and end at Noon. The registration fee is still only 25 cents. Please be sure to get registered before fishing and to get your copy of the rules. Fishing is limited to the banks of the Blind River Point Area and Boat Launch Areas. At the close of Rodeo, awards will be given to the winners. Ribbons will be given to all participants. Random drawings will be held in each age group for rod and reels at the awards time (winners must be present). Refreshments will be sold at the Point Area.

For more information, contact the St. James Boat Club (in the morning times) 225-869-8966 or Craig Calcagno at 225-206-2476 (cell).
