Manteo Rotary Club’s Rockfish Rodeo presents the 2nd Annual Inshore Slam

October 2nd & 3rd, 2015 – Manteo Waterfront


Dear Friends and Supporters,

The Manteo Rotary Club has held the “Rockfish Rodeo” for 16 years. Your support allowed us to provide over $260,000 in scholarships to deserving young people in Dare County.

In 2014, due to the decline in the striper populations, and after much consideration, we decided to reformat our tournament.It is now the “INSHORE SLAM”.Participants now compete for the largest fish in four categories; stripers, flounder, puppy drum, and speckle trout.There is also 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.


The tournament is 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 is 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 2-3, 2015 at the Manteo Waterfront.
