Harbor Docks in Destin, Fla., is hosting its 19th annual Take-A-Kid-Fishing Day Nov. 3 and has 350 openings for children and chaperones.

Last year, 57 Destin charterboats offered to take children out for a fun day of fishing. Harbor Docks treats families to a fish fry after the trips, according to nwfdailynews.com.

Children between the ages of 7 and 13 are welcome to join Harbor Docks for a day of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and the Choctawhatchee Bay. The day will begin at 7 a.m. with an early sign-in for boat assignments and breakfast. Children and chaperones will board the boats at 8 a.m. and return to Harbor Docks at 12:30 p.m. for the fish fry.

All participating children will receive a T-shirt, fishing rod and reel.

Off-duty police officers, firefighters and Harbor Docks Charities volunteers will be chaperones on the charterboats.
