While you're waiting for the big catches to come to the dock, let the kids have a try at the Catch & Release Fishing Tournament. There's no entry fee, just meet under the weigh-in scales at Baytowne Marina. There are some poles available, but if you have your own, it's a good idea to bring them. The kids will be fishing the ponds and lakes in Sandestin for the biggest catch.
