The IFA Redfish Tour is regarded as one of the top series of tournaments of its kind in the States and is certainly the most popular. It hosts a number of qualifying events in 5 regional divisions across the south east of the country, with teams vying to make it through to the Championship Final at the end of the season. In 2019 this was held at Venice in Louisiana, considered to be the best Redfish destination in the world. Most of the qualifying competitions are one day events where the teams of two anglers are looking to bag the heaviest total of two fish. Sounds easy, but all states impose a slot, outside which fish that are too small or too big must be put back. So the largest fish that count are either just under 27 or 28 inches, with the heart breaking realisation that something slightly bigger than this won't count. Anglers will try a variety of patterns, looking for something that works on the day, but generally they like to sight fish in clear water where they can see and cast to the shoals of Redfish.
The IFA Tour also includes events for kayak fishing, sponsored by Hobie and in this series we include the season finale Championship from Grand Isle, Louisiana as well as the Hobie World 8's, the world championships from Gold Coast Australia.
