Panama City Beach, FL -

Bay County is home to a national oyster shucking champion. Robert Daffin of Panama City Beach is headed to Ireland later in September to represent the U.S. at the World Oyster Shucking Championship.

Daffin has been shucking oysters for over 35 years and developed his style and technique early on shucking oysters in family backyard cookouts. That experience has led to where he is now.

Robert is not only the current national champion, he's also been crowned state champion in Florida twice along with titles in Alabama and Louisiana.

 Daffin is a shucker at Bayou On The Beach and will head to Ireland for the world championships to be held on September 28th.
