Chuck will talk about how he founded his business and walk you through his incredible website where you can order over a trillion jig combinations. (yes we said a trillion…the choices are endless) Captain Scott will also bring you some great info on one of his favorite fishing tournaments the Grouper Grapple. He will be joined by Sue Sommer, the wife of the late Coach Jeff Sommer of Estero High School and they will discuss the positive impact that he had on hundreds of young people and adults. Brian Peachey, the founder of the Grouper Grapple Offshore Fishing Tournament was an all-star athlete who ran cross country and track for Coach Sommer from 1989-1993. Along with his fellow athletes, Coach Sommer pushed them to be their best taking them to the State meet where they were Runner up in 1991 and State Champions in 1992. Peachey was recognized as All Southwest Florida Cross Country Runner of the year during his time with Coach at Estero HS and has stayed close with Coach Sommer and his family throughout the years. This year the Grouper Grapple will raise money for two charities, the Freedom Alliance and the Jeff Sommer Memorial Scholarship Fund.
