Elite Release of 2019 Team Format

NEDERLAND, Texas. (October 15, 2018) – The sport of professional redfishing may be enjoying it's best days since the early 2000's with tour and trails popping up everywhere along Gulf and Atlantic coastal communities. Nationally televised events like the Elite Redfish Series on Discovery Channel offers anglers and companies tremendous exposure and a avenue by which, in a coordinated effort they can reach the buyer and end user with their product(s) and brand. Since 2014 the Elite Redfish Series has focused solely on a model that offers high dollar paybacks to a more limited field of competitors fishing head to head, just 1 angler per boat with no teams nor draw partners. The Elite Redfish Series has been and continues to be the leader and most lucrative inshore saltwater tournament series in the country. Invitational fields of just 20-25 professional anglers paying higher entry fees and traveling across the Gulf Coast have resulted in fewer anglers fishing for more money than ever before in the history of our sport.
