About the IFA

Only a few short years ago, who would have ever imagined, that inshore anglers would be fishing for Redfish in a professional format. The idea, formulated from a love of fishing, continues to grow and provide inshore anglers an opportunity to display their talents on the intercoastal waterways.

Not only is there a renewed excitement of inshore angling, but the Redfish Tour is also a great format to educate people on the importance of maintaining our precious fishing resources. Since the banning of netting, our inshore fisheries have flourished much quicker than anyone could have imagined. From this, the Inshore Fishing Association was formed and continues to thrive. In accordance to Inshore Fishing Association’s mission statement; we will keep our goals of competition, recognition, and education as the center of our focus.

“We are dedicated to providing an avenue for the talented anglers of the Redfish Tour to excel in the world of competitive Professional fishing.”

Now in our second decade of providing a quality tournament experience, and having awarded several million dollars in cash and prizes, we are proud to number our friends and members in the thousands
