Okaloosa Co commissioners to decide on Destin Fishing Show using Bed Tax money

Okaloosa commissioners will also decide whether or not to spend sixty-two-hundred dollars in Bed Tax money for the pilot of a Destin-based fishing show.

The idea came up when the owners of a local charter boat partnered with an Alabama hunter, who has a show on the Sportsman Channel.
Each week on the show, a family would win a sweepstakes for a vacation in Destin for a fishing experience..
The show would also feature local shops, restaurants and attractions.
The Tourism Director says if the pilot is picked up by a national cable network, the exposure would be huge.
