Figuring out how to Fling Fish in Perdido Key

By: Lauren Tjaden


Mullet are the only fish with a gizzard. They are said to possess mystical properties. And I haven’t a clue about how to throw one.

After all, I never anticipated competing in a contest where you fling dead fish at a target.

Nevertheless, I better figure it out quick, because I’m leaving in just a few days for Flora-Bama’s Interstate Mullet Toss and Gulf Coast’s Greatest Beach Party, April 26—28, 2013. This world-renowned party, which takes place smack-dab on the sugar-sands of Perdido Key, includes three stages of live music, beach games, great food, a daily bikini contest, and even celebrity tossers.

So the question is: overhand or underhand?

You can also enjoy auxiliary events like the Flora-Bama Mullet Man Triathlon, and the Flora-Bama Mullet Swing Golf Classic. This event generates more than $20,000 for local youth charities annually.
