The Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy will host their Second Annual Lowcountry Bottom Fishing Rodeo on Saturday, October 10th at the James Island Yacht Club.

Lines will be cast at 6:50 am and weigh-in is from 3 pm to 5 pm at the James Island Yacht Club.

 “We are excited to host this tournament as a fun, socially distanced way for people to be part of something bigger than themselves and support our community during these exceptionally difficult and heavy times.”  Chaplain Rich Robinson, Executive Director at Coastal Crisis Chaplaincy, said.
