    IFA LA. Division events set for MAY 17TH, 2014

    MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. (May 7, 2014) - Inshore anglers from across Louisiana and surrounding regions will meet at Empire, Louisiana on May 17th, for the first of two 2014 Louisiana Division events of the IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela's and IFA Kayak Fishing Tour Presented by Hobie Fishing.

    The IFA Redfish Tour Presented by Cabela's will begin its activities on Friday, May 16th, with tournament registration at The Delta Marina from 5-7 p.m. followed by the captain's meeting. Anglers will launch from the marina at safe light on Saturday, May 17th. Check-in times will be assigned at Friday's captain's meeting with anglers returning to the marina for the weigh-in.

    Competitors in the IFA Kayak Fishing Tour Presented by Hobie Fishing will have registration from 6-7 p.m. with Captain's meeting to follow on Saturday, May 17th, at The Delta Marina. Anglers will launch Sunday, May 18th, from the location of their choice within boundary waters, with the weigh-in set to be at The Delta Marina. Check in times will be announced at Saturday's captain's meeting.

    Continuing to draw inshore anglers from Texas to the Carolinas, both IFA Redfish Tours include five different divisions, each with a two-event regular season. With budget-friendly entry fees, the two tours offer opportunities to compete close to home while keeping anglers' expenses to a minimum.

    Every regular-season IFA Redfish Tour presented by Cabela's tournament winner will take home a fully loaded 2014 Ranger IFA Custom 1862 Boat powered by a Yamaha 70 Outboard, valued at $25,999.00. Winners of the IFA Kayak Fishing Tour presented by Hobie Fishing will win $1,500 guaranteed.
