Fishing Invitational

FGCU Fishing Invitational

Due to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations regarding the global outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), the FGCU Fishing Invitational has been postponed until further notice.

The Fallen Eagle Redfish Classic was created to honor the memory of Jesse Woodyard, an FGCU student who passed away in 2014. After many years of success, the Florida Gulf Coast University Alumni Association now hosts the annual fishing tournament, the FGCU Fishing Invitational, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Jesse M. Woodyard Scholarship.


Thank you to our 2020 Sponsors!
