The Red Drum Rodeo is focused on bringing the Young Life community together with the coastal Virginia fishing community, through family friendly tournaments that encourage middle and high school students to get out on the water. Our annual Red Drum Rodeo Tournament offers serious fishermen and women the opportunity to be involved in a competitive fishing tournament, while also rewarding younger fishers for their participation.
