Big Mac Classic Fishing Tournament

Published: Wednesday, September 4, 2013 at 08:53 AM.

Mark your calendar for the weekend of Sept. 27 through 29 to fish in the third Big Mac Classic Fishing Tournament.

The event is moving to the Destin Fishing Rodeo’s familiar weigh station located behind AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar on the Destin harbor.

AJ’s will be the official host for the annual fundraiser presented yearly by Emerald Coast McDonald’s of Fort Walton Beach.

The event benefits the Ronald McDonald House of Northwest Florida which provides a home away from home for families with a hospitalized child and is located next door to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola.

As the host for the annual Destin Rodeo, AJ’s will create excitement the weekend before the official month-long Destin event by hosting this annual fundraiser for RMHC.

There’s something for everyone with a live auction planned at 6 p.m. during the captain’s meeting and dinner on Friday night, free family kid’s events on Saturday, more silent auctions and raffles all weekend long and of course weigh-in each afternoon Saturday and Sunday.

First prize for largest king mackerel is $5,000 and other cash awards for dolphin, barracuda, amberjack and wahoo will also be paid out to top anglers.
