The Destin Cobia Tournament!
If you own real estate in Destin or have ever been on vacation to the Emerald Coast, you have no doubt heard the town referred to as the ‘World’s Luckiest Fishing Village’. For this reason, we love our fishing tournaments and one of the biggest of the year is just around the corner.
The annual Destin Cobia Tournament kicks off on March 3, 2016 with the official launch party at Jackacuda’s in HarborWalk Village. When the Cobia run and the first fish is brought to shore, the game is officially on to see who can reel in the biggest one and take home the prize before the close of the tournament on April 30, 2016.
While the tournament officially takes place in Destin, you can fish and weigh-in all along the Gulf Coast. The weigh-in station for Destin is at HarborWalk Marina, but there are official locations also available in Pensacola, Panama City, Orange Beach and Bluewater Bay.
So, what are you fishing for? Cash! Prizes ranging from $100 to $1000 are available. Oh, and if the kids love to fish too, be sure to enter them into the Pee Wee Angler division. Whether you ride out on your own boat or hop aboard a Destin charter fishing boat, we wish you the best of luck during this two month tournament. Good luck!
