The IFA Redfish Tour event at Port Aransas, Texas, took place on September 12, 2020. The overall winners were Nate Forbes and Mitchell Collins who are both from the area. 
They weighed a two-fish limit that totaled 17.78 pounds, which was enough to win them the final regular-season event for the Texas Division of the IFA Redfish Tour. For their efforts, the team walked away with a fully rigged Ranger RB190 boat prize package, powered by a 90-horsepower, four-stroke Mercury outboard.
For their limit, the team ran seven to 10 miles to fish Shamrock Cove where they kept an eye out for schooling fish. They made use of gold spoons, Berkley Gulp! and other soft plastics, which eventually landed them their 10.49 lunker. This earned them the $500 Berkley Gulp! Big Redfish award, but their participation in the Anglers Advantage contingency program saw another $2,100 in cash added to their pockets for a total of $29,600 in winnings.
Chris Smith, of Corpus Christi, Texas, and Blake Trevino, of Friendswood, Texas, were the second-place finishers with the 17.59 pounds that they brought to the scales. They opted for a 60-mile run north of the launch to find clean water and after sight-fishing with soft plastics, ended up earning $2,135 for their limit. Third place went to IFA Redfish Tour veterans and previous Tour winners, Russell O'Riley, of Portland, Texas, and Corey Survant, of Corpus Christi, Texas. They weighed 16.37 pounds of redfish to earn $1,164 and also added $1,050 in Anglers Advantage cash. According to O'Riley, their pattern was to fish dirty water adjacent to a clean flat, which saw fish relaxing when they entered the dirty water.
The IFA Redfish Tour is heading to Empire, Louisiana, for its next stop, with the event scheduled for October 10, 2020. Teams that compete in at least two regular-season events will be qualified for the 2020 IFA Redfish Tour Championship.
