IFA Atlantic Division events now set for June 6-7
NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. – The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Bass Pro Shops & Cabela’s and IFA Kayak Fishing Tour events for Georgetown, South Carolina, have been rescheduled for June 6-7 due to concerns of the spread of the Coronavirus and IFA anglers’ safety. This will be the first regular-season event for the Atlantic Division.
The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Bass Pro Shops & Cabela’s will begin its activities on Friday, June 5, with tournament registration from 5-7 p.m. at the Campbell Marine Complex (Hwy 17 S at Sampit River Bridge, Georgetown, SC 29440) followed by the captain’s meeting. Anglers will launch at safe light from the complex on Saturday, June 6. 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. at the Campbell Marine Complex with captains meeting to follow on Saturday, June 6. Anglers will launch Sunday, June 7, from the location of their choice with the weigh-in set for 3 p.m. 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.
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 Mercury outboard valued at $26,800 for first place. Each IFA Kayak Fishing Tour event will award the first-place finisher with an Ascend 128T kayak plus $1,000. Second place will be awarded an Ascend 12T Kayak plus $100.
