We’re proud partners with CCA Florida who have promoted over 25 years of marine conservation. They’ve recently released 150 tagged redfish in Florida waters with a chance to win nearly $500,000 in prizes & scholarships.

In order to win, you have to register. Recently an angler and Captain caught one of the lucky redfish – but were not registered. Here’s their story from the CCAFLStar Facebook page:

Two more people missed out on some great prizes today! This time a Youth Angler and a Captain!

This morning Jonathan Schisler was fishing with Capt LW of Intercoastal Experience, between Destin and Ft. Walton on the bay. His 8yr old son Zachary caught and released a tagged redfish at around 9am. Neither was registered for STAR. Jonathan said it may pay to register and try again. We definitely think so! Unfortunately, Zachary missed out on a $25,000 scholarship for the youth STAR tagged redfish division.

The guide missed out on a big prize too! Captain LW was actually one of the captain’s that led an unregistered angler to a tagged redfish last year. He had a chance to win a 150hp Yamaha Outboard if he and Zachary were both STAR participants. If you’re a guide make sure you and all of your clients are eligible STAR particpants to avoid this happening to you!

This year’s kick-off is at sunrise on Saturday, May 28, Memorial Day weekend and ends at sunset, Labor Day, September 5 offering participants a total of 101 fishing days!

A chance to win nearly $500,000 in prizes & scholarships makes CCA Florida STAR the largest family friendly saltwater fishing competition in the state. Catch one of the first tagged redfish and you could win a new GMC Pick-up truck, boat, motor and trailer package worth over $40,000 or a college scholarship worth up to $25,000.  Enter a photo of any of the other eligible species you catch in the additional divisions for the opportunity to win more terrific prizes.
