Hook, Line, and Spears

Whether it's trolling for dolphin or spearfishing the poisonous and overpopulated lionfish that gets your adrenaline pumping, you won't want to miss the sixth-annual Internationally World Famous Fishing Tournament in Fort Lauderdale. This isn't your typical tourney, anglers. All types of tackle and even spearguns are game at this one. Step outside your comfort zone, because one of the 18 awards includes biggest fish caught from a kayak, paddleboard, or surf board. Join this free, world-famous fishing tournament on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Weigh-in ends at 5 p.m. and is followed by an awards ceremony, fish fry, and raffle at the Treasure Trove, located at 2933 SE Fifth St. Register at the captain's meeting at the Treasure Trove on Thursday at 7 p.m. All proceeds go toward One Fund Boston, which assists families of those injured or killed in the Boston Marathon bombings. Call 754-245-6062, or email Phil Dunn at trovefishing@gmail.com. Follow updates on Twitter @IWFTT.

Thu., July 18, 7 p.m.; Sat., July 20, 7 a.m.-3 p.m., 2013
