Garmin would like to introduce you to Team Tuppens. Based out of Lake Worth, Florida, we are proud to be part of the team. Currently, Team Tuppens is placed 2nd in the Division 8 Open Class for the Southern Kingfish Association.
The team consists of Captain Steve Sprauge, owner of Tuppens Marine and Tackle, his 8-year old son Christopher, J.J. Clark, Mike Folsum and Bill Brodbeck.
For SKA, Steve and Team Tuppens compete against and alongside some of the best anglers around. As a personal goal, Team Tuppens is shooting for a top-5 finish and to fish the nationals in Biloxi, Mississippi. Better yet, Christopher is aiming for the #1 finish in the Jr. Angler division and we certainly hope that he meets his goal!
"If we are not chasing wahoo and tuna in the Bahamas, we are fishing SKA or local charity tournaments along the South Central east coast of Florida," Sprague said. "We always make sure we have a good time and we very much respect and appreciate what the ocean offers to us."
On his Jupiter 34, Steve is decked out with top-of-the-line Garmin hardware. He has 2 GPSMAP 7215 MFDs, a GSD 26, Garmin VHF 200, GMR 1204 xHD open array radar, a GXM 51 for weather data, our GHP autopilot and Yamaha Outboards.
Best of luck to Team Tuppens for the remainder of the season. We are certainly pulling for you!
