cobiaMonth long tournament hosted by HarborWalk Marina

The 13th Annual Destin Cobia Tournament presented by HarborWalk Marina is a month long event that attracts hundreds of anglers from Northwest Florida. With a nickname like, “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” great fishing tournaments and Destin naturally go hand in hand. The tournament provides anglers with a great fishing experience and excellent payout. Last year more than $35,000 in cash and prizes were awarded.

The tournament takes place at HarborWalk Marina in Destin, Florida, located on the Destin Harbor. The tournament is scheduled to begin with the first Cobia caught and weighed-in by a boat officially entered in the tournament and ends April 30, 2009.

All proceeds from the event go towards the Miss Destin Scholarship Fund. The Miss Destin competition began in 1951; three years after the Destin Fishing Rodeo debuted. This scholarship fund has helped dozens of aspiring young women further their educational goals. Your support is truly an influential way to give back to your community.
