On the Road: Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo

I’m heading down to Grand Isle to cover the Tarpon Rodeo, which was cancelled last year for the first time in its long history because of the BP oil spill.

There’s a ton of excitement on the island for the big return because it’s about more than just fishing. It’s about community and resilience and a way of life. The people there are tough and they’ve been through a lot, so today will be as symbolic as it is fun.

I’ll have reports from Grand Isle on WDSU News at 4, 5 & 10.
