The Texas Internation­al Fishing Tournament (TIFT) is right around the corner and officials from both Port Isabel and South Padre Island are excited for the prospects it brings.

“This is a great event that has been with us for many, many years,” Port Isabel Mayor Joe Vega said. “I am very excited about this tourney because it brings a lot of anglers from all over the state.”

Mayor Bob Pinkerton echoed Vega’s sentiments and said, “As always we are looking forward to TIFT. It is always a fan­tastic tournament. …My grandkids fish it every year.”
