Port St. Joe-- Now to the water and next week it's the 3rd annual Bluewater Outriggers Classic and Wounded Warriors Weekend. It's a fishing tournament based at the St. Joe Marina that will allow anglers to compete for cash, while also hosting ten wounded veterans in a big way.
Classic Tournament Committee
"The Warriors Shootout is a once in a lifetime chance for some of these guys to come over and actually sit on the boat, everything taken care of, we have a tournament crew ready to go tournament fishing for 'em. Basically we take care of every need that they have and get them the best opportunity to go out and fish against each other in the armed forces, and also for their own sake, with a professional, or actually a tournament crew on a boat."
