Sarasota charter captains volunteer time for special needs event

SARASOTA, FL (WFLX) - There was a special fishing event this week in Sarasota to give children with special needs the opportunity to go out on the open water. Around 35 charter captains volunteered their time for "The Friendliest Catch."

Dozens of people with special needs got on boats and went out in the Gulf to get the catch of the day. The event's organizers have been doing this for the past 12 years and plan to continue keep the tradition going.
