During its inaugural 2017 season, the previously named Tito’s Handmade Vodka Redfish Series averaged more boats in its first four tournaments than any other redfish series in the entire southeast. Voted the 2017 “Best Redfish Tournament Organization” in the annual “Best of Louisiana Outdoors” awards, the tournament drew in over 164 unique teams along the Gulf Coast from Texas to Florida, Arkansas, the Carolinas, and all over Louisiana for superior competition and conservation.
The mission of America's Redfish Cup is to create the premier non-profit redfish tournament series with a purpose. It promotes conservation through education and helps preserve coastal fisheries for future generations by tagging and releasing most of the fish caught during the tournament. Anglers and staff tagged and released over 1,000 redfish during last year's events.
Each regular season event has a guaranteed $10,000 payout 1st place payout, wrapping up with a $20,000 payout for the championship. Rather than the usual two fish under 27” stringer, we make it interesting and give more teams the chance to win the $10,000 top prize by using a three fish stringer (one under 27" and two up to 28").
The payout structure is based on the 106 boat entries averaged in 2017:
1st-$10,000; 2nd-$4,000; 3rd-$3,250; 4th-$2,750; 5th-$2,250; 6th-$1,750; 7th-$1,250; 8th-$1,000; 9th-$800; 10th-$700; 11th-$600; 12th-$500; 13th-$400; 14th-$300; 15th-$250.
