The John A. Peters Jr. Memorial Tarpon Tournament is hosted out of Savannah, Georgia by Release Marine. The JAPTT's purpose is to benefit the local community by bringing together the community as well as charitably donating to a worthy local organization. 


The John A. Peters Jr. Memorial Tarpon Tournament is a catch and release tournament that is in it's 10th year. This annual tournament is a can't miss event in Savannah and surrounding coastal areas among fisherman.
