Late tournament registrations are being accepted for the Sabine Showdown Fishing Tournament.

More than 50 teams have signed up for the tournament, which is to be held Saturday with weigh-in at the Carl Parker Center from 2-5 p.m. More than $15,000 will be awarded in three categories with anglers traveling from across Southeast Texas and Southwest Louisiana to participate. A drawing for a $2,800 offshore trip will take place, and a Sabine Showdown Cook-Off champion will be named as well.

Proceeds will be used to provide scholarships, purchase and maintain training equipment, and other needs at Lamar State College Port Arthur.
