MS Gulf Coast Buddy Sports provides recreational sports and leisure opportunities for youths and adults with special needs. With support from Shaggy’s Restaurants and Shaggy’s Harbor Docks in Pass Christian, the Buddy Sports organization has planned a near shore charter boat fishing event for Tuesday October 11, 2022, from 4:00pm -7:00pm at Shaggy’s Charter Docks in the Pass Christian Harbor. In keeping with our theme of programs, this event is called “Fishing with Buddies”.
Near-shore charter boat fishing event details:
On Tuesday, October 11, 2022, from approximately 4:00 pm -7:00 pm we will have a near shore charter boat fishing event at Shaggy’s in Pass Christian. We have 25 boats that will take 45 youths and adults with special needs fishing. Each boat will have one or two participants and a family member or volunteer Fishing Buddy. The boats will load and leave out of the Shaggy’s Harbor Docks in the Pass Christian Harbor and fish around the local area for 2 hours and then return. We have been approved for this event by the Mississippi Department of Marine Resources. There will be a DMR, City of Pass Christian, and Harrison County Sheriff Office boat escorting the participants out of the harbor to make the event more memorable and safer for the participants. Granny’s Alliance is providing an air-conditioned ADA accessible restroom, Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) is providing fishing rods for all the participants, Keesler Federal Credit Union has sunglasses for the participants, and Sea Tow is providing life jackets for everyone’s use.
Boat loading will take place between 4:00-4:30pm. Participants and their Fishing Buddy will fish for about 2 hours and the participants may keep all the legal fish caught, if they so choose. Thanks to our sponsors and all the boats and captains, everything is being provided free of charge for the participants and their fishing buddies.
