Anglers from across Louisiana and surrounding states will be in Lafitte to participate in both the IFA Redfish Tour and IFA Kayak Fishing Tour this weekend.

The IFA Redfish Tour will launch at safe light on Saturday morning from Team Lafitte Harbor, and will return there at check-in times assigned at Friday evening’s captains meetings.

The IFA Kayak Fishing Tour will launch Sunday from locations anglers select, and will return to Team Lafitte Harbor that afternoon for weigh-in. Kayak anglers will register from 6 to 7 p.m. Saturday, with a captains meeting immediately following.

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.

In addition to nearly 200% payback, every regular-season IFA Redfish Tour event guarantees a new, fully-rigged Ranger boat powered by a Yamaha outboard valued at $25,995 for first place. Each IFA Kayak Fishing Tour event will feature a $1,500 cash prize for the winning angler.
