So what is Swollfest? “On the surface, it’s a fishing rodeo, a charitable fishing tournament, but in the truest sense, it’s a congregation of some of the best people humanity has to offer. This group of board members, volunteers, participants, and sponsors alike, all see the greater good in people.” – Dr. Nick Rauber, Swollfest Founder/Director
Held the 1st weekend after Father's day at Bridge Side Marina in Grand Isle, LA., the Creole Classic has evolved to over the past three decades to one of the premier fishing tournaments. Prizes are awarded for the first 3 places in each category; for the Best All-Around Fisherman; for the Best All-Around Fisherette; and the Best All-Around in the Children's Division.
