The crew aboard the Only Way landed the largest cobia in the World Championships at Harbor Docks.

Locally owned Destin restaurant Harbor Docks recently hosted its largest Cobia Word Championships tournament to date with 87 boats entered in the event. With more than $66,000 paid out to 14 different boats, the Cobia World Championships, combined with the Crab Cruncher Classic, raised over $20,000 for Take-A-Kid Fishing Day.

The Cobia World Championships and the Crab Cruncher Classic are the primary fundraisers for the 19th Annual Take-A-Kid Fishing Day, which treats underprivileged children to a fun day of fishing on some of Destin’s finest luxury charter boats.  The team at Harbor Docks plans to take the kids out for a memorable day on the water on Sunday, Nov. 3, 2013.

Harbor Docks hosts numerous fundraising events throughout the year for local charities including the Cobia World Championships and the Crab Cruncher Classic as well as the Caddyshack Classic Golf Tournament and Harbor Docks Charity Auction.
