The captain and crew of the Lady Em in were full Halloween garb a last year's Rodeo wrap-up. Who knows what surprise they will bring in this year

Saturday, Oct. 31 is the final day of the Destin Fishing Rodeo and as always, AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar has a full, fun and exciting day planned with something for everyone.

For the angler

The Rodeo's final day of weigh-ins starts Saturday, Oct. 31 at 10 a.m. on the docks at AJ’s Rodeo Barge.

AJ’s and Rodeo staff will be dressed in their favorite costumes and the Rodeo will finish off with a grand ending around 7 p.m. with free stuff giveaways and the final call for fish from weigh-master Bruce Cheves.

The final day would not be complete without the charter boat Lady Em and their now famous themed arrival at the AJ’s Docks to finish up the Rodeo right.

Live music and fireworks follow at 8 p.m. right there on the docks.

For the sports enthusiast

The football morning begins with Ole Miss versus Auburn at 11 a.m. on AJ’s Jumbotron.

The World’s Second Largest Cocktail Party will be at AJ’s with Florida versus Georgia at 2:30 p.m. and then the fourth game of the World Series begins at 7 p.m.

For the late nighter

The AJ's adult costume party begins after 10 p.m. with a $500 cash prize for the best costume.

AJ’s says thanks
