This rodeo is scuba and "skin diving." The "Aqua Aces Rodeo" is our main rodeo that we have every year. It is huge.

For the first time, we're doing a feediving-only tournament, which you can read more about here: http://www.spearboard.com/showthread.php?p=922276

Re: 2009 New Orleans Aqua Aces Rodeo - June 18-21

Thanks Chris... Just viewed the link... sounds very exciting.

My wife and kids will be out on vacation during that time so I think I will escape my work week somehow.

btw, I am in Fort Lauderdale, so I will be flying up there. Also I am the pres of the Longfins this year and will be advertising your competition at the next meeting.

Hopefully I can make it... if I can get a boat... Any fishing guide contact I can use?

Thanks,

Bruno

There are many fishing charters around here, but few that specialize in spearfishing. A few that were recommended to me were:

Troy Wetzel
Xtreme Fishing Charters
