21st Annual Destin Cobia Tournament

It’s that time of year again! Get ready because you don’t want to miss out on the 21st Annual Destin Cobia Tournament. Cobia is only in-season once a year, and the season begins when the first cobia is caught in the Gulf — the race is on! The tournament ends on April 30th, so there’s still plenty of time to join the fun.

Hosted by HarborWalk Village, the 21st Annual Destin Cobia Tournament attracts anglers from all over Northwest Florida. The competition is heating up! This is a boat tournament, and boats must register on the calendar day prior to catching and weighing eligible entries. All anglers are limited to one fish entry per person, per day. The biggest fish caught during the tournament could win a cash prize! To weigh your cobia, take it to any of the following weigh stations:

  • HarborWalk Marina- Destin FL
  • Blue Water Bay Marina- Blue Water Bay, FL
  • Outcast Bait and Tackle- Pensacola, FL
  • Captain Andersons Marina- Panama City, FL

Because cobia is considered a delicacy, this event is a favorite among both locals and guests. Try your cobia with a lemon caper sauce or baked with parmesan.
