Inshore anglers from across Texas and surrounding regions will converge at Port Aransas, Texas, on April 5-6, for the season-opening events of Texas Division 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 (301 JC Barr Blvd., Port Aransas, TX 78373). The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela’s will begin its activities on Friday, April 4, 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 5, 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 the captain’s meeting to follow on Saturday, April 5, 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).

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, both tours offer opportunities to compete close to home while keeping anglers’ expenses to a minimum.
In addition to nearly 200% payback, every regular-season IFA Redfish Tour event guarantees a new, fully-rigged Ranger boat powered by a Yamaha outboard valued at $25,995 for first place. Each IFA Kayak Fishing Tour event will feature a $1,500 cash prize for the winning angler. For more information or to become a member of the IFA, visit www.ifatours.com.
