Surrounded by the sparkling waters of the Laguna Madre Bay and Gulf of Mexico, Port Isabel and South Padre Island play host to Texas’ largest saltwater fishing tournament—the Texas International Fishing Tournament (TIF). The tournament starts with late registration on Wednesday and Thursday with a special “play day” for junior anglers on Thursday.
Always the first weekend of August, TIFT is expected to attract as many as 1500 anglers and more than 500 boats during its two days of fishing activities.
TIFT is open to anglers of all ages and levels of experience. And remember, when it comes to big catches, luck often wins over skill! We hope to see you at TIFT!
