Posted on by Southern

Fishing reelCalling all fisherman who live in Destin or own a home in Fort Walton Beach, it’s time for the annual HarborWalk Marina Cobia Tournament!

Take a break from shopping Emerald Coast real estate and hit the open water this March or April as the Cobia make their annual run. The tournament officially opens when that first Cobia comes to shore for weigh-in at the marina, which usually happen mid to late March and ends April 30, 2015 at 8pm.

In addition to great fishing there are also many on-shore events associated with this fun annual event in Destin and all are free and open to the public. The kickoff party will take place on March 1, 2015 at Jackacuda’s in HarborWalk Village. Come and enjoy food, delicious drinks and wonderful live music beginning at 6pm. 

During the fishing tournament, be sure to hang around the docks for Super Saturdays. This is when fisherman are encouraged to head out and reel in the really big one as the heaviest fish of the day earns cash prizes. The whole event will wrap up with the awards ceremony on May 6, 2015 at Harry T’s Lighthouse. We wish all our local fisherman the best of luck in the 2015 Cobia Tournament!
