Inshore Fishing Association Renews Partnership with Major Marine Electronics Company

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark.A major sponsor, has re-joined the Inshore Fishing Association (IFA) as official sponsor for the 2015 season. The sponsorship includes both Redfish Tour and Kayak Tour events.

 Humminbird, a leading innovator of cutting-edge technology in the electronics category has re-upped their sponsorship of the growing tours.

“Humminbird is a well respected brand and a great partner for us,” said IFA Marketing Director Bart Schad. “We’re fortunate to have their support and look forward to working together again in 2015.”

As a pioneer in marine electronics and accessories, the Humminbird brand was the first introduction for many anglers to fish finders, depth sounders, marine radios and GPS systems. With time, these items have become essential pieces of equipment among anglers and families alike. Today, the Eufaula, Alabama-based companies continues to introduce revolutionary products available through a wide variety of retail outlets in the USA and Canada, and are available worldwide in over 100 countries.

“Humminbird is proud to support the IFA and their anglers,” said Humminbird Marketing Director Dale Logue. “We’re passionate about inshore fishing and this is an ideal platform to showcase our products. We’re looking forward to the 2015 season.”

Drawing inshore anglers from Texas to the Carolinas and beyond, the IFA Redfish Tour is the largest and oldest redfish tour in the nation. Offering anglers the opportunity to compete in low-entry fee events, redfish anglers can fish close to home, minimize expenses and compete for lucrative winnings and contingency prizes.

The IFA Kayak Fishing Tour presented by Hobie Fishing is the fastest-growing kayak fishing tournament trail in the county. Kayak anglers competing in the catch-photograph-release tournaments can take advantage of the numerous money and product prizes awarded to competitors.
