The redfish around Aransas Pass should head to other areas.
Inshore anglers from across Texas and surrounding regions will meet at Aransas Pass, Sept. 7-8, for the final 2013 Texas Division events of the IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela’s and IFA Kayak Fishing Tour Presented by Hobie Fishing.
The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela’s will begin its activities on Friday, Sept. 6, with tournament registration at Redfish Willie’s at Redfish Bay Boat House (322 Huff St., Aransas Pass, TX 78336) from 5-7 p.m. followed by the captain’s meeting.
