Inshore anglers from across Louisiana and surrounding regions will meet at Empire, La., May 17-18 for the 2014 Louisiana 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 The Delta Marina (317 Rose Marie Dr., Empire, LA 70050). The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela’s will begin its activities on Friday, May 16, with tournament registration from 5-7 p.m. followed by the 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, 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.
