Fishing, fun, and much more is what guests will experience when attending the 80th Annual Texas International Fishing Tournament (TIFT) from July 31 – August 4, 2019!
Founded in 1933 by Doc J.A. Hockaday, TIFT was born to tell the story of fishing in the Rio Grande Valley to fellow anglers around the world.
With almost 90 years under its belt, TIFT consistently attracts over 1500 anglers and more than 500 boats every year, plus over 10,000 dockside spectators!
Anglers can enjoy both bay and offshore fishing and can compete in one of three divisions: bay, tarpon, and offshore. Anglers of any age are encouraged to participate!
TIFT’s mission statement is to “Provide a quality family oriented fishing tournament for anglers of all ages,” and it is a pledge that TIFT holds dear.
