The 70th Annual TIFT Tournament began today, and the towns of South Padre Island and Port Isabel are getting ready, hoping business will be good.
Anglers of all ages and from all over Texas and even from out-of-state, are arriving to South Padre Island for the largest saltwater fishing tournament in Texas, and with the influx of participants and spectators, hotels are expected to be at full capacity, restaurants packed, and clothing stores ringing up the cash register.
TIFT will be held this weekend at the Island and Port Isabel.
