Annual Drum & Henry Kids Fishing Derby



Get the kids’ fishing equipment ready for the Drum and Henry Fishing Derby. It is the 64th year that this event has provided youth 14 years old and younger the opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled day of fishing. Fishing certainly can be, and is, fun for all the family. Don’t be put off from getting your kids involved, as something about catching fish gives them a sense of pride. This isn’t the only event you can get your kids excited about to get them involved in fishing. You can simply book something like a private charter which is led by a captain on the waters of Key West, where there is plenty of legal fish to catch. The captains are experienced fishermen and know where the best places are to catch the fish and will be able to give you and your child general fishing tips. It’s a fun day out for all and will give a confidence boost to the kids. Click Here if you’re interested in your adventure on Key West waters!
