D.J. Domangue and Tilden Hooper with the Cowboys and Cajuns Redfish Rodeo Gold Buckle.

To help recover with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the BP Oil Spill, Cowboy Outfitters USA’s (COUSA) member D.J. Domangue (Houma, LA) approached COUSA with the idea of creating a fishing tournament to promote the recreational fishing opportunities and Cajun lifestyle of Southern Louisiana. The 1st Annual Cowboy's & Cajun's Redfish Tournament was held in October of 2011 and has been a great tradition ever since. Thursday night kicks off with registration and a welcome reception.  Friday and Saturday, teams head out bright and early to catch the largest two day total of three redfish per day and have the opportunity to fish with a COUSA cowboy. The event concludes Saturday evening where the top prizes are handed out, including the prestigious Cowboys and Cajuns Redfish Rodeo Gold Buckle.
