What's Biting? 2016 Port Aransas Fishing Competitions

IFA Redfish Tournament April 1st-3rd

The IFA Redfish Tour is an exciting “inshore angler” fishing competition that tours the country and this town is one of their stops! The IFA Redfish Tour will be in Port Aransas April 1st-3rd of 2016. This event is put on by Cabelas and considered the “Strongest Grass Roots Inshore Tournament Series”.

“Not only is there a renewed excitement of inshore angling, but the Redfish Tour is also a great tournament that naturally educates people on the importance of maintaining our precious fishing resources. “Since the banning of netting, our inshore fisheries have flourished much quicker than anyone could have imagined. From this, the Inshore Fishing Association was formed and continues to thrive. In accordance to Inshore Fishing Association’s mission statement; we will keep our goals of competition, recognition, and education as the center of our focus.”
