Fishing class at Destin High School draws in students


Not only will it be a first for Destin when the long-awaited Destin High School opens its doors on Aug. 10, but it will be the first school in Florida to have a fishing class. 

About 60 people showed up Tuesday night at Destin High to hear about the fishing class to be taught by Capt. Mike Parker, who recently sold his charter boat Silver King after 20 years in the business. 

Capt. Mike Parker shares with the crowd gathered at Destin High School Tuesday night about the goals and objectives for the fishing class.

During the meeting, Parker went over a list of course goals and objectives they hope to accomplish in the class. 

On the list were such things as learning and developing fishing skills, how to use fishing equipment, rigging and techniques as well as to learn and develop boating knowledge and boat care and boating safety. 

Part of rigging will include learning how to tie knots and how to cast.
