Destin Celebrates 20th Annual Take-a-Kid Fishing Day

What do you get when you combine 57 of Destin’s finest charter boats with more than 300 kids and a crew of volunteer chaperones?  You get one glorious day of fishing in Destin, FL!

Harbor Docks Charities recently hosted the 20th Annual Take-A-Kid-Fishing Day.  The special event is open to children in the area who don’t often get the chance to go fishing. Off-duty policemen and firemen from Destin and Fort Walton Beach along with Harbor Docks Charities volunteers serve as chaperones for the day.
