Grand Isle, Louisiana
July 6 – 8, 2022
The WWH Grand Isle Offshore Rodeo is a two day deep water fishing event for combat injured veterans on the WWH roster held annually at Bridge Side Marina in Grand Isle, LA. The invited veterans will arrive Thursday, July 6th to meet their captains and camp owners. The volunteer boat captains and many camp owners come together to make this event possible for our veterans. They will be fishing Friday and Saturday, July 7th and 8th. The veterans will compete in 8 fish categories. Only the veterans are allowed to enter fish into the rodeo. Plaques are given in each category. Each veteran leaves with either an additional trip or a door price valued at least $250. All the fish caught will be cleaned by volunteers and each veteran will leave with an ice chest of cleaned fish.
This is a 2-day fishing rodeo meaning that some of the bigger boats can and will stay offshore overnight. For most of our members, that’s a trip beyond their means. For some, it’s a trip of a lifetime.
Each night everyone including veterans, captains, camp owners and sponsors will come to together for a meal donated by even more WWH Grand Isle Offshore Rodeo supporters. So, as you can see, without the support of the community, WWH couldn’t pull off this event. We thank you for your support!
