Cobia World Championships & Crab Cruncher Classic
Posted on April 7, 2016
Owning a home on the Emerald Coast, especially real estate in Destin, is especially exciting in the spring if you happen to also be an avid fisherman. The Cobia are running through our waters and the local tournaments are in full swing!
One such tournament is the Cobia World Championships, which are being hosted by Harbor Docks, a favorite local Destin restaurant. Proceeds benefit Take-A-Kid Fishing Day and participants have won over $300,000 in cash prizes in previous years. One of our favorite divisions of this tournament actually kicks off today, the Crab Cruncher, and runs through the weekend.
To participate in this event all you need to do is hop aboard one of our local charter fishing boats in Destin, Florida. The majority of the boats are participating in each tournament taking place along the Gulf Coast and the Cobia are expected to run throughout the rest of the month, should you not be able to head out this weekend.
If fishing isn’t really for you, but you love the excitement of a good sporting event – and a reason to sip a cool beverage on a gorgeous day – stop by Harbor Docks each afternoon for the weigh-ins. Enjoy your favorite sushi roll or fresh seafood dish as you watch the boats line the harbor and bring to shore their day’s haul.
