Texas redfish anglers get ready.
Inshore anglers from across Texas and surrounding regions will meet at Port Aransas, April 13-14 for the 2013 Texas Division season-opening events of the IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela’s and IFA Kayak Fishing Tour Presented by Hobie Fishing.
Both tour events will operate out of Port Aransas Marina. The IFA Redfish Tour will begin its activities on Friday, April 12, with tournament registration from 5-7 p.m. followed by the captain’s meeting. Anglers will launch from Port Aransas Marina at safe light on Saturday, April 13, with check-in times assigned at Friday’s captain’s meeting.
Competitors in the IFA Kayak Fishing Tour Presented by Hobie Fishing will have registration from 6-7 p.m. with captains meeting to follow on Saturday, April 13, at Port Aransas Marina. Anglers will launch Sunday from the location of their choice with the weigh-in to be held at Seaworthy Marine (102 S. Fulton Beach Rd., Fulton, Texas 78358). Check in times will be announced at Saturday’s captain’s meeting.
Continuing to draw inshore anglers from Texas to the Carolinas, both IFA Redfish Tours include five different divisions, each with a two-event regular season. With budget-friendly entry fees, the two tours offer opportunities to compete close to home while keeping anglers’ expenses to a minimum.
Every regular-season IFA Redfish Tour presented by Cabela’s tournament winner will take home a fully loaded 2013 Ranger Banshee Extreme, valued at $30,000. Winners of the IFA Kayak Fishing Tour presented by Hobie Fishing will win $1,500 guaranteed.
