Dec. 8. Angler extraordinaire Hank Cherry of Lincolnton will host a special fishing tournament Dec. 11 for The Warrior’s Journey, an organization dedicated to serving military veterans and their families.

The two-time Bassmaster Classic champion said the tournament winner is guaranteed a $5,000 purse.

“The Warrior’s Journey gives everything they have to help serve so many veterans, so this tournament is going straight to a good cause,” said Cherry. All proceeds will go to The Warrior’s Journey to help them connect veterans and their families to community, partnerships and resources.

The entry fee is $120 with $100 going directly to support The Warriors Journey; $20 will go to the Big Bass prize.

On-site registration will begin at 5 am prior to takeoff from Beatty’s Ford Ramp in Denver. Takeoff is at 8 am; weigh-in at Beatty’s Ford at 4 pm.

The benefit tournament is being supported by Woods to Water Outdoor Co. and Abu Garcia.
