NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. – Inshore anglers from across the Carolinas and surrounding regions will converge at Georgetown, South Carolina, September 23-24, for the final 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.
Both tour events will operate out of Campbell Marine Complex (Hwy 17 S at Sampit River Bridge, Georgetown, SC 29440). The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela's will begin its activities on Friday, Sept. 22, with tournament registration from 5-7 p.m. at the complex followed by the captain's meeting. Anglers will launch from complex marina at safe light on Saturday, Sept. 23, and will return to the marina for the weigh-in. Check-in times will be assigned at Friday's captain's meeting.
Competitors in the IFA Kayak Fishing Tour Presented by Hobie Fishing will have registration from 6-7 p.m. with the captain's meeting to follow on Saturday, Sept. 23, at Campbell Marine Complex. Anglers will launch Sunday from the location of their choice with the weigh-in to be at Quality Inn & Suites (210 Church St., Georgetown, SC 29440).

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.
