EW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (March 30, 2017) – Inshore anglers from across South Carolina and surrounding regions will converge at Beaufort, South Carolina, April 8-9, for the first regular-season events for the Atlantic Division of the 2017 IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela’s and IFA Kayak Fishing Tour Presented by Hobie Fishing.
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 8, at Downtown Marina. Anglers will launch Sunday, April 9, from the location of their choice with weigh-in set to be at Higher Ground of the Low Country (2121 Boundary St., Suite 101, Beaufort, South Carolina 29902). Check-in times will be announced at Saturday’s captain’s meeting.
The IFA would like to thank local sponsors Quality Inn at Town Center and Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce for their support in putting together these events.
Continuing to draw inshore anglers from Texas to the Carolinas, both IFA 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 percent payback, every regular-season IFA Redfish Tour event guarantees fully rigged RB190 Ranger (new in 2017) boat prize package powered by a 90 horsepower, 4-stroke Mercury outboard valued at $26,800 for first place.
