Capt. Roger Gales was a giver. Every day he spent around the water, he gave his heart, his soul and his knowledge. If you met Roger, you remember. Roger passed away 10/18/18 and left his wife, Darla and 8 year daughter, Paisley. In his final days, Roger's main concern was for the security of his wife and child.
Thus, this tournament is designated in memory of Capt. Roger and as a financial support mechanism for his family. 25% of all entries and TWT's received in this event will be kept and paid directly to the Capt. Roger Legacy Fund for his family's benefit.
Capt. Roger loved to Wahoo fish; it was his passion. As you plow the seas in search of the next big bite, think about Capt. Roger and other great fishermen who have done the same, and loved it as much as you do. They are certainly looking down on you and waiting for the next strike.
