MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – Inshore anglers from across Louisiana and surrounding regions will meet at Houma, Louisiana, on Aug. 1-2 for the final 2015 Louisiana Division events of the IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela’s and IFA Kayak Fishing Tour Presented by Hobie Fishing. The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela’s will begin its activities on Friday, July 31, with tournament registration at Quality Inn of Houma (210 S Hollywood Rd, Houma, LA 70360) from 5-7 p.m. followed by the captain’s meeting.

Continuing to draw inshore anglers from Texas to the Carolinas, both IFA Redfish 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.
