Bob’s Machine Shop, a leading manufacturer of high-performance marine products and accessories, has re-joined the Inshore Fishing Association (IFA) as official sponsor for the 2013 season. In addition to being a sponsor of the IFA Redfish and Kayak Tours, Bob’s Machine Shop will also sponsor the new Lucas Oil IFA Pro-Am Redfish Challenge series presented by Cabela’s.

“We’re thrilled to have Bob’s Machine Shop on board again for 2013,” said IFA Marketing Director Bart Schad. “They’ve been a key partner for the IFA for six years running and build extremely high-quality products. We’re fortunate to have their support.”

A division of RSM International Inc., Bob’s Machine Shop is a major supplier of marine performance accessories, including jack plates for engines up to 350 horsepower. The company strives to market innovative, high-quality marine products targeted at anglers and performance boaters who value their sport and leisure time and demand the very best.

“Bob’s Machine Shop is proud to support the IFA and their anglers,” said Steven Pelini, marketing director of Bob’s Machine Shop. “We’re passionate about inshore fishing and this is an ideal platform to showcase our products. We’re looking forward to the 2013 season.”

Drawing inshore anglers from Texas to the Carolinas and beyond, the IFA Redfish Tour is the largest and oldest redfish tour in the nation. Offering anglers the opportunity to compete in low-entry fee events, redfish anglers can fish close to home, minimize expenses and compete for lucrative winnings and contingency prizes. The Lucas Oil IFA Pro-Am Redfish Challenge series is being billed as the ultimate redfish showdown, featuring the sport’s best anglers in a high stakes, made-for-TV competition.

The IFA Kayak Fishing Tour presented by Hobie Fishing is the fastest-growing kayak fishing tournament trail in the county. Kayak anglers competing in the catch-photograph-release tournaments can take advantage of the numerous money and product prizes awarded to competitors.
