Join us October 23 for the triumphant return of the Elite RedFish Tournament to South Padre Island. The Elite RedFish Tournament allows anglers to compete at the highest professional level for a full day of high-intensity fishing and competition. The Elite RedFish Tournament has reached high popularity due to the Elite Fishing League TV Tour’s inaugural success on Discovery Channel, airing every Sunday morning at 7:00.
So come on down October 23. The event begins at 6:00 a.m. with the captains’ meeting and rules briefing, followed by the boat launch at safe light around 6:30 a.m. The weigh-in starts later in the afternoon at 3:00, followed immediately by the awards ceremony. The event is open and free to the public, and everyone is encouraged to come and support the competing teams.
South Padre Island is a perfect destination for any fishermen, whether they are competing in the tournament or they fish leisurely. With plenty of options for fishing spots--whether in our Laguna Madre bay or deep-sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico--this is the perfect place to test your luck and skill. After a long day of fishing, you can take your haul to one of our local eateries and have them cook your catch for you. The restaurants here on SPI are experts at cooking seafood and delivering mouth-watering dishes, with their years of experience handling anything from red snapper to Gulf shrimp.
Come on down to South Padre Island for a great fishing experience.
