Neal Kendrick and Jon Halker from Ridgeland, South Carolina, emerged as the winners of the final regular-season event for the Atlantic Division of the IFA Redfish Tour. 
The event, presented by Bass Pro Shops & Cabela's, took place on August 22, at Beaufort, South Carolina. Kendrick and Halker weighed a two-fish limit that totaled 10.98 pounds, which was enough to win them a fully rigged Ranger RB190 boat prize package powered by a 90-horsepower, four-stroke Mercury outboard.
The duo traveled only four miles from the launch to find their winning fish and primarily used Berkley Gulp! 4-inch shrimp on a Texas rig. It landed them a 5.70-pound redfish, which was the heaviest of the day. The catch also won them the $500 Berkley Gulp! Big Redfish award, which came with $250 in Berkley products.
Derek Taylor and Brian Goude of Georgetown, South Carolina, finished in second place with a total of 10.30 pounds. These two also stayed close to the launch and Taylor stated that fishing was tough and that they caught around 10 to 12 fish and all by 8: 30. They used Berkley Gulp to fish the banks and win their $2,134 prize money. However, thanks to the Anglers Advantage program they more than doubled their winnings with a total of $4,507.
Rennie Clark, of Wilmington, North Carolina, and Drew Arndt, of Hampstead, North Carolina were the third-place winners with their total of 10.16 pounds. Their strategy was to take advantage of the overcast skies and low winds, which saw them running up to 20 miles during the day. They sight-fished Berkley Gulp shrimp to tailing fish and caught their limit for a total of $1,231 in winnings.
The IFA Redfish Tour is heading for Hopedale, Louisiana for the next event, which will take place on August 29. Teams that compete in at least two regular-season events will be qualified for the 2020 IFA Redfish Tour Championship. The top ten winners for the IFA Redfish Tour - Atlantic Division Beaufort is as follow:
