This year's 9th annual Flounder Pounder Tournament was a great success, both for Fisherman, and for the Jacksonville School for Autism

The fishing started early with the first weigh-ins coming in at 2 pm.  Ted Clayman was the overall winner of the Big Fish prize, bringing in a single Flounder at 8.48 lbs.  Ryan Vogt took the 3 fish aggregate prize with 15.43 lbs to show for his fishing efforts.  The top Jr. Angler award went to Micah Bush this year with a Flounder at 2.67 lbs.

Much Fun was had by everyone who attended the event.   There was plenty of food and entertainment to go around, and an overall incredible atmosphere on a great sunny day.

Chip's desire to have one of the best fishing tournaments in Jacksonville is evidenced by the support of the local community. 

Angie's Sub, a local favorite sandwich shop showed their appreciation to Chip Davis.

Almost 700 anglers participated in 173 registered boats for the tournament,  making it a local fisherman's favorite too. 

The trophies

Next years tournament will shape up to be bigger and better than before with the goals set out by it's founder. 

And by the way, since I had started this post, the actual check given to the JSA turned out to be  $95,000.
