The Texas International Fishing Tournament (TIFT) will launch its 5th Annual TIFT Catch a Redfish Educational Scholarship (CARES) at our 78th event August 2 – August 6.

 The 10 month program will be open to all anglers registered in TIFT, and junior anglers who are 16 years of age or younger.  Tagged redfish will be released in the Laguna Madre Bay and the first five anglers who catch one of the tagged fish will receive a $10,000 scholarship.  Fishing for the event will be open from August 4, 2017 through May 31, 2018.  Any angler registered in the 78th TIFT is automatically registered in the TIFT CARES.

“This program was designed as an investment in the future of TIFT. We feel this is a wonderful complement to our existing annual scholarship program and encourages the family fishing experiences that have kept our tournament growing.”
