The Event:
In May of each year, the South Haven Steelheaders, a chapter of the Michigan Steelheaders & Salmon Fisherman’s Association (MSSFA), holds a two day Professional-Amateur Salmon and Trout fishing tournament out of the Port of South Haven, Michigan. This tournament is the third in a series of tournaments that run the length of Lake Michigan throughout the season taking advantage of the spring migration of fish from southern to northern Lake Michigan. The Tournament is an annual event that began in 1985.

The Opportunity:
We historically kick-off the event the second week of May on a Friday evening with a Captain’s meeting and the Pro-Am Tournament will take place over the weekend on a Saturday and Sunday. These dates are fast approaching and the earlier you get aboard, the more opportunities there will be for us to become your brand ambassador. We want to give you as many impressions as possible. Whether it is word of mouth, print media, social media, internet, event participation or editorial features & press releases, we want to include you at whatever level of sponsorship you are comfortable donating.

Aside from the May tournament, we will continue to include promotion of your company in our local tournaments throughout the season, communications with our members and other opportunities that will arise. You want the most out of your dollar for advertising with us and we aim to give it to you.

The Request:
We earnestly solicit your support to help create the excitement of our community’s tournament event experience by providing cash and prizes to be given away while at the same time giving you the opportunity to market your company and products to the Great Lakes fishermen who participate in our tournament as well as the crowd of onlookers during onshore tournament activities.
