After accepting the award, Southerland told the crowd that he hoped his family’s reef produced a lot of “good days” for area fishermen.

Since 2011 Southerland has served on House committees for natural resources and transportation and infrastructure. He currently serves on subcommittee for fisheries, wildlife, oceans, and insular affairs along with Coast Guard and maritime transportation.

Money raised from the Kingfish Tournament goes toward funding various MBARA reef building and research projects.
