IFA Texas Division events set for August 24-25
The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Bass Pro Shops & Cabela’s will begin its activities on Friday, August 23, with tournament registration from 5-7 p.m. at the Sea Hag Marina (322 Riverside Dr., Steinhatchee, FL 32359) followed by the captain’s meeting. Anglers will launch at safe light from the marina on Saturday, August 24. Check-in times will be assigned at Friday’s captain’s meeting with anglers returning to the marina for the weigh-in, which is set to begin at 3 p.m.
Competitors in the IFA Kayak Fishing Tour will have registration from 6-7 p.m. with captains meeting to follow on Saturday, August 24, at Sea Hag Marina. Anglers will launch Sunday, August 25, from the location of their choice and return to the marina for the weigh-in set for 3 p.m.
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 a fully rigged RB190 Ranger boat prize package powered by a 90-horsepower, 4-stroke Mercury outboard valued at $26,706 for first place. Each IFA Kayak Fishing Tour event will feature a guaranteed $1,000 cash prize.
