Destin – Home of the Cobia World Championships
This¬†61.6 pound cobia was caught by Jordan Whiteman on the Hey Baby charter boat.
- For six weeks each spring, this area is the center of the cobia world with the annual Cobia World Championships fishing tournament.
- More than $200,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded to the best in several categories such as overall world champion, ladies world champion, and junior world champion. ¬†¬†There’s even a SUP (stand-up paddle) board division.
- Based out of Harbor Docks, the tournament runs until final weigh-in on Sunday afternoon, May 4.
- Even if you’re not fishing the tournament, it’s a great time to visit the docks each afternoon to watch the boats arrive in the harbor and weigh-in their catches of the day.
