MS Gulf Coast Buddy Sports hosting Fishing with Buddies

MS Gulf Coast Buddy Sports will host a fishing experience everyone can enjoy.

The Buddy Sports organization provides recreational sports and leisure opportunities for youths and adults with special needs.

Tomorrow, Buddy Sports has planned a near shore charter boat fishing event called ‘Fishing with Buddies.’ The event will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. at Shaggy’s Charter Docks in the Pass Christian Harbor.

Forty individuals with special needs will be on 23 different boats in hopes of catching all types of fish. Buddy Sports Founder and Executive Director Mike Crawford said, “This event is special because it gives people with special needs an opportunity to go out and fish when they may not have the opportunity otherwise. Just like your neighbor gets up and goes fishing every morning, every afternoon, we want people with special needs to have that same opportunity. We’ve had individuals that are 58, 60 years old that have caught their first fish ever. So, it makes it really special when somebody can do something like that.”

This will be the seventh time Buddy Sports has hosted Fishing with Buddies on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
