(Nov. 14, 2012 - Chalmette, LA)...

Another season of the Presented by Hobie is officially in the books! The 2012 season concluded recently at the Tour Championship in Chalmette, Louisiana. The no-entry fee Championship proved to be a tremendous event, thanks in large part to the support of our sponsors. In addition to the deep overall payout, the grand prize included a brand new, Pro Angler Hobie Kayak! Be sure to check out the articles below for a full run-down of the event and help us congratulate the 2012 IFA Kayak Fishing Tour Champion, Benton Parrott of Spanish Fort, Alabama.

The Tour Championship in Chalmette also gave us the opportunity to crown the 2012 Overall Angler of the Year. With a 45-inch redfish which ultimately won Big Fish honors of the event, Fil Spencer clinched the overall award in addition to a $1,000 cash prize.

We’ve also posted the 2013 Redfish Tour and Kayak Schedules! We’re looking forward to seeing everybody for the start of the new season - dates and locations are available below.

In the meantime, we love hearing from IFA anglers - don’t hesitate to contact us directly with any questions about membership, schedules or sponsor bonuses available to IFA competitors.

Sincerely, Inshore Fishing Associationoffice@redfishtour.com478-836-4266
