(Oct. 04, 2005 - South Padre Island, TX) The Oh Boy! Oberto Redfish Cup presented by Frogg Toggs Championship has been rescheduled for South Padre Island, Texas on November 11-13.   The Friday through Sunday event will feature the top 40 teams based on points accumulated over the course of the regular season. "We are very pleased to be able to bring the sport¹s most prestigious event to South Padre Island," said David Healy of the Redfish Nation.  "We had to cancel a previously scheduled qualifying event as Hurricane Rita was approaching the Texas coast last week, but South Padre Island made it through in great shape, so it was logical that we come right back to a community that is hungry and well prepared for the event." All weigh-ins and Tailgate Party activities will be held at FishBones Pier and Grill.  The event will feature a host of displays, vendors, give-aways and a Big Air dog competition that is open to the public.  For more details please visit [b]Clearwater, Florida[/b] If you are planning on attending the Oh Boy!
