Destin Cobia Tournament ~ Cottages By The Bay
If you’ve visited the Emerald Coast at all in the springtime, then you’ll know how excited everyone is for the Destin Cobia Tournament! Destin is known as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” for a good reason. The Cobia Tournament kicks off fishing season for anglers. In its 22nd consecutive year, the Destin Cobia Tournament kicks off as soon as the first cobia is caught in our Gulf. Great news for those eager to participate, as the tournament kicked off with a bang yesterday at the Emerald Grande. Despite the early start at the end of the month, the tournament will still carry on until April 30th at 7 PM.
Known as the area’s favorite and most suspenseful fishing tournament of the year, anglers from all over Northwest Florida head down to Destin to catch the largest cobia. Weigh-ins take place at the Destin Harbor to see who caught the largest tournament, with cash prizes as high as $1,000! Weigh-ins are free and open to the public, and if you’ve ever been to one, then you’ll know how exciting they are!
“Super Saturdays” are another fun component of the Destin Cobia Tournament. Whoever catches the heaviest fish will win cash prizes, and free photos are taken with your catch! In addition, fun events and live music take place at HarborWalk Village, adding to the fun of Super Saturdays. View Super Saturday rules here.
