NAVARRE BEACH —  Families packed the Navarre Beach Fishing Pier on Saturday morning for the annual Take A Kid Fishing clinic.

More than 300 children registered to participate and received free fishing poles to take home. Organized by the Navarre Beach Area Chamber Foundation as part of the Navarre Fishing Rodeo, the event is entering its seventh year, with sponsorship by the Okaloosa Gas District.

 “The Fishing Rodeo is the event we look forward to all year long. It is great fun and we are so pleased and excited to have Okaloosa Gas joining us again as the title sponsor," Foundation President Mike Sandler said. "We are proud of all the work they are doing in Navarre.”

There will be free admission on the pier on both days of the rodeo during Fish Navarre Weekend.
