NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. – Inshore anglers from across South Carolina and surrounding regions will converge at Georgetown, South Carolina, April 27-28, for the first of two events for the Atlantic Division of the 2019 IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Bass Pro Shops & Cabela’s and IFA Kayak Fishing Tour.
The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Bass Pro Shops & Cabela’s will begin its activities on Friday, April 26, with tournament registration from 5-7 p.m. at Campbell Marine Complex (Hwy 17 S at Sampit River Bridge, Georgetown, SC 29440) with the captain’s meeting following registration. Anglers will launch at safe light on Saturday, April 27, from the complex and return to the complex for the weigh-in. Check-in times will be assigned at Friday’s captain’s meeting.
Competitors in the IFA Kayak Fishing Tour will have registration from 6-7 p.m. with captains meeting to follow on Saturday, April 27, at Campbell Marine Complex.
