A perfect day was on tap as young anglers enjoyed the day catching fish along South Walton’s Grayton Beach.  Coastal Conservation Association hosted the annual fishing event on May 15 with more than 100 kids joining in on the popular tournament.

More than 100 participants were given their own rod and reel combo and tackle donated from Fish Florida, a state-wide organization that provides the rods and tackle from money collected from Florida specialty license tags. Yellowfin Ocean Sports in Seagrove donated the shrimp bait for the event.
