The "Back to School" Kids Kingfish Derby is an invitation to go fishing. ... Unlike a tournament or fishing rodeo, where the emphasis is usually on competition and profit, our fishing derby places emphasis on the kids and their exposure to fisheries resources and the sport of fishing. Cost is $25 Per Kid, all fish proceeds will go to Safe Harbor Boys Home.
