The 9th Annual Flounder Pounder charity fishing tournament began in 2010, spearheaded by parents Chip and Teresa Davis. When their son Tyler was diagnosed with autism, they wanted to create an event that gave back to the cause.
Tyler enrolled at JSA and Chip, being the avid fisherman that he is, immediately thought of hosting a fishing tournament to raise money for the school. From the very beginning, the Davis family devoted countless hours of time and energy to raising Autism Awareness, while creating a grassroots effort among family and friends to create this annual charity event.
To date, Flounder Pounder has raised over $250,000 in the past 8 years and is voted the best tournament in the 904! Last year’s Big Fish winner reeled one in at 7.3 lbs and won $1,500 in prize money!
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, October 20th at Beach Marine. The Mandatory Captain’s Meeting for all Anglers will be held on Thursday, October 18th at Pierside Tiki Bar & Grill. All proceeds from the tournament will benefit Jacksonville School for Autism (JSA). THANK YOU to all of our supporters for making a difference in the lives of children with autism!
