The tournament is open to inshore and offshore anglers targeting trout, redfish, flounder, kingfish and black sea bass.

Cash prizes will be awarded, with all proceeds benefiting past, present and future members of the 160th special operations aviation regiment in our area.

“We are so fortunate to live in the Savannah area we are embraced as military by the local community. That outpouring, that support drives and funds our ability to help those soldiers and families that are in need,” said Wade Ziegler, Night Stalker Association executive member.

Participants are encouraged to register ahead of the tournament.

Anglers can have their lines in the water at daylight on Saturday, with the weigh-in cutoff at 5 p.m. at Fort McAllister Marina in Richmond Hill.

Ziegler is excited for the weekend and hopes it grows into something much bigger than just a tournament.
