We're changing up the format for the tournament this year to an ALL CASH payout for the heaviest five fish stringer. The cost to enter is $30 and 25% of the entry fees will be donated to charity.
The weigh-in location will be at the Pelican Pub on Dauphin Island and weigh-in will be between 1pm and 2pm. You can fish anywhere in AL waters after 5:30 am.
