IFA Redfish Tour – Kayak Fishing Tournament

| January 23, 2011

I pulled up the IFA Redfish Tour website the other day, and found the new tournament calendar for 2011. If you ever thought about doing a saltwater kayak fishing tournament, this one would be a good way to get your feet wet (pun intended). I did the Rockport, Texas, tournament last year, and learned a whole lot about how it’s done. It was more learning than catching, and although I thought I posted something on it, I guess some secrets were kept?
I was fishing the tournament with a fellow Texas fly fisher who is much more versed in conventional fishing methods and proved it by winning back his expenses with the large speckled trout of the tournament – a $200 “windfall.”

The kayak tournament is part of the IFA Fishing Tour and is in the same place as the tour on a different day. There winner of a division is eligible to go on and compete for the championship – if you find you ARE the competitive type.

Stay tuned for more IFA Redfish Tour Kayak Fishing Tournament information.
