The city of Corpus Christi has landed a big one.

Details have been announced for the inaugural Roger Creager Coastal Bender Fishing Tournament.

It’s the American Bank Center’s latest homegrown event where they team up with the local country music performer.

It will be held from Aug. 1-4.

Creager says the only thing he loves more than country music is fishing.

“Doing a fishing tournament – talk about a no-brainer – it’s a natural fit. And then pairing it with Corpus Christi is a home run,” Creager said. “I mean, my hometown, me getting to fish, and getting to be in my hometown for three days. I mean … greatest gig ever.”

The Coastal Bender fishing tournament will also feature an outdoor expo, good ol’ South Texas bar b-q and a big concert featuring Roger Creager.

It will be held down on Shoreline between the American Bank Center and the barge dock.
