IFA reschedules Slidell Redfish, Kayak tours for Port Aransas, Texas

Tournaments moved after Hurricane Isaac blasts Southeast Louisiana

The IFA Redfish and Kayak tours originally scheduled for Sept. 7-9 out of Slidell have been rescheduled to provide time for the area to recover from the impacts of Hurricane Isaac.

The event is now slated to be held Sept. 14-16 in conjunction with a regional event in Port Aransas, Texas.“Due to widespread power outages and flooding from Hurricane Isaac, we feel we have no other choice but to cancel the events,” IFA President Jim Armstrong said of the Slidell tournaments. “Our hearts go out to the anglers, their families and everyone on the Gulf Coast affected by Hurricane Isaac.”

The remaining regional events will merge, beginning Sept. 13 with the IFA Redfish Tour captain’s meeting at City Marina Dennis Dryer Municipal Harbor in Port Aransas, Texas. Anglers who compete in two regular-season events and at least one regional event will be qualified automatically to compete in the no-entry-fee championship.
