The first regular-season event for the Louisiana Division of the IFA Redfish Tour presented by Bass Pro Shops & Cabela's took place on June 13, at Lafitte, Louisiana. 
Walking away as the winners were Trevor Taylor, of Panama City, Florida, along with Bill Burke of Crestview, Florida. They weighed a two-fish limit that totaled 18.97 pounds, which was enough to net them the win. For their efforts, the team is the proud owners of a fully rigged Ranger RB190 boat prize package powered by a 90-horsepower, four-stroke Mercury outboard.
Taylor and Burke found clean water and little wind while fishing in the wake of a passing tropical storm. Their strategy was to fish the waters of Houma and concentrate on sight-fishing in the grass with spoons and soft plastics.
Taylor stated that the duo was overwhelmed with the win and did not think that they were going to make it due to a family emergency. However, they stayed with their plan and stuck to it all day. He also said that it was the best feeling ever to face off against some of the best anglers in the world and winning against them was amazing.
The team didn't just win themselves a Ranger boat either, but also added $3,576 in Anglers Advantage cash to their pockets. In addition, their 10.10-pound kicker earned them the $500 Berkley Big Redfish award, so in total, the anglers went home with $31,076 in winnings.
Second place went to Kevin Harvey, of Bourg, Louisiana, and Kelly Dupre, of Houma, Louisiana. They brought 18.68 pounds of redfish to the scales after taking advantage of the sunny skies while sight-fishing Berkley Gulp! and Powerbait.
Narrowly missing out on second place for a third-place finish was Brandon Arceneaux, of Gray, Louisiana and Bubba Corbin, of Houma, Louisiana. They weighed a total of 18.60 pounds, which was enough to win them a total of $3,112. The team found conditions to be ideal for sight-fishing soft plastics.
