Palm Beach KDW Classic @ Riviera Beach Marina
Jun 3 – Jun 4 all-day

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. –

South Jersey Shark Tournament
Jun 7 – Jun 10 all-day

The annual South Jersey Shark Tournament is the first competitive big-game fishing opportunity of the season. Averaging 150 to 200 boats each year, this event is the premiere Shark Tournament in the Mid-Atlantic region. With a cast of over 1,000 anglers participating annually, this exciting event takes place when the bite has been historically at its best in our productive waters off of Cape May. Our shark tournament is structured to provide participants with the best possible fishing hours, lucrative cash prizes and an equal chance for boats of all sizes to compete – all while setting an example of sportsmanship and sound conservation practices.

The entry fee is $650 per boat which provides eligibility for tournament prizes and five tickets to all dockside dinners and festivities (additional tickets can be purchased at the Captains’ meeting). All of the festivities, from Captain’s Meeting to Awards Party will take place at South Jersey Marina. We’ll have the big tent, great food and everything else you’ve come to expect at this event. We’ll even have a shuttle van running between South Jersey and Canyon Club for remote parking. It’s going to be a typical Jersey good time! Guaranteed!
Depending on the number of entries, prize money will most likely top the 300K mark again this year! If you enjoy competitive shark fishing, dockside parties and the camaraderie inherent in this sport, there is no better opportunity to enjoy yourself with family and friends than the South Jersey Shark Tournament. If you need transient dockage, be sure to make your reservations early to guarantee yourself a spot at South Jersey Marina (South Jersey will likely fill up first) or Canyon Club Resort.
See you at the weigh station – Bob Glover, Tournament Director.

32nd ANNUAL LADIES FISH OFF
Jun 25 @ 11:17 am – Jun 28 @ 12:17 pm

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
$32,000.
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.
SAVE THE DATE for the 32nd Annual Ladies Fish Off ~ June 1-4, 2017
