Take A Kid Fishing Day
What it Is
Take A Kid Fishing Day is a free event for children 7 to 13 years old. Every year, on the first Sunday of November, some 300 children will be treated to a day of fishing on the Gulf of Mexico or Choctawhatchee Bay. Each child - and their chaperones - are served breakfast before boarding one of Destin's finest charter boats for a morning of fishing. Upon return, the day is celebrated with a fish fry lunch, and every child is sent home with a t-shirt and their own rod and reel.
OVER 7,000 KIDS SENT FISHNG TO DATE
How it Happens
Funds are raised via the Harbor Docks Take a Kid Fishing Day Auction held every August and the Caddyshack Classic Golf Tournament in March. With these proceeds - and the help and time of hundreds of captains, crew and volunteers - we are able to continue this wonderful tradition that has been going on for 27 years now!
