The Irishwaterdogs Invitational was a great event again in 2011.The IWDI is an annual kayak fishing tournament held in Jacksonville, Florida each October. The goal for this event was to bring together anglers, paddlers, vendors and local charities to help raise money for the Cleft Palate clinic of Jacksonville, FL.

The awards party that followed was the best part of this tournament. Meeting new people and listening to stories about the one that got away while enjoying good food, live music and cold beer is always worth the 4 hr drive for me. I would encourage all kayaks anglers to attend this great event every year. I know I will.

    • Braid to fluorocarbon
    • Try using a spider hitch in the braid first then tie the leader onto it. Doubles the size of the braid in the knot to the leader.
