The 15th annual Palm Beach County KDW Classic, one of Florida’s largest fishing tournaments, returns to the Riviera Beach Marina on June 3rd & 4th. The popular event, co-hosted by the venerable West Palm Beach Fishing Club (WPBFC) and the City of Riviera Beach, routinely attracts over 200 boats and nearly 1,000 anglers. Over 140 boats are currently registered. The KDW Classic is a very family & friends oriented event offering a wide range of prizes for adults and kids. The tournament offers 10 guaranteed cash awards in all four categories, Kingfish, Dolphin, Wahoo and Juniors (kids age 12 & under).
Broad based support from sponsors, a great value to anglers and an ongoing commitment to give something back to the local community are why the KDW Classic has developed such a loyal following. Through the years tournament proceeds have been used to create new artificial reefs, install reef saving mooring buoys, support the City of Riviera Beach scholarship fund and aid the annual Kid’s Fishing Day program produced by the Fishing Club’s charitable affiliate, the Palm Beach County Fishing Foundation.
The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County has been the KDW Classic’s presenting sponsor since the beginning. Numerous other sponsors participate in the event by underwriting the cash awards, providing raffle items and tournament giveaways. This year $34,000 in guaranteed cash prizes and $30,000 in raffle items and trophies are up for grabs.
Anglers can register for the tournament online at www.kdwclassic.com. The general public is invited to watch the tournament weigh-in on Saturday, June 4th along the newly renovated Riviera Beach Marina waterfront. The scales, located on the north end of the marina bulkhead, open at 12 noon and close at 4pm. For additional tournament information call the WPBFC at (561) 832-6780. –

POMPANO BEACH, FL – (FEBRUARY 24, 2017) –
In 1986, a group of ten enthusiastic lady anglers organized the Ladies Annual Fish-Off to raise
money for a local children’s charity. The first ladies-only saltwater tournament was held at the
Sands, and featured 72 boats and 125 anglers. The tournament raised $5,000 in its inaugural
year. In its second year, the tournament had 127 boats and 237 anglers. The heaviest fish was
a Blue Marlin caught by Kim Burgess, and the tournament netted $10,000. Most recently, 159
anglers fished on 49 boats in the 31st Annual Ladies Fish-Off, and the tournament netted
The longevity of the Ladies Annual Fish-Off is a true testament to the fishing community in
Southeast Florida. Our lady anglers are family-focused women with a passion for fishing and
their community. This tournament is planned and executed 100% by volunteers, and it is
amazing what can happen when a community comes together. Since its inception, over
$532,000 has been donated to our beneficiaries.
As a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, all the tournament proceeds go directly to The Ronald
McDonald House Charities of South Florida and The Billfish Foundation. The Ladies Fish-Off
also makes a $1,500 contribution to the NSU Oceanographic Center Fisheries Lab.
