D'Iberville hosts 3-day redfish tournament

D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - A three-day fishing tournament brings some of the best professional anglers to South Mississippi.

Opening ceremonies for the third and final event of the Yamaha Outboards Eastern Division Redfish Elite Tournament started at sunrise under the I-110 bridge in D'Iberville. Once the formal portion of the tournament ended, fishermen boarded their boats and headed out to reel in redfish.

D'Iberville and the Scarlet Pearl Casino are the co-hosts of the Elite Redfish Tournament. The best angler at this weekend's tournament will take home a new Skeeter Boats SX2250 powered by Yamaha Outboard. And it's possible the overall champion of this fishing series will be decided in D'Iberville.
