Tommy Bohanon Foundation receives $20,000 from Off Duty Fishing Series

Dozens of anglers took to the waters of Southwest Florida recently to raise thousands of dollars in the 2nd Annual Red Grouper Bash as part of the Off-Duty Fishing Series. $20,000 raised in the event was donated to the Tommy Bohanon Foundation, which supports young student-athletes in Lee County.

Forty-five boats took part in the March 15-16 event at Moss Marina on Fort Myers Beach. The winner of the bash was Jess Mesmer, with a combined two-grouper weight of 35 pounds. Mesmer also won the Calcutta group paying out $25,500 for first place and a Calcutta reel.

The Off-Duty Fishing Series was founded by Ryan Joyce, Alec Dilallo and Michael Werner as a way to give back to the Fort Myers Beach community after the devastating effects of Hurricane Ian. Overall, $40,000 was raised at this year’s tournament.

“We’re sincerely appreciative of the support Ryan, Alec and Michael have given us the past couple of years,” said Foundation Co-Founder Tommy Bohanon. “Their generosity helps the Foundation make a positive impact on the lives of so many young people in the community.”
