The CCA State of Texas Angler’s Rodeo (STAR) Tournament was created to support the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) in its mission to advise and educate the public on the conservation of our marine resources. It is also an annual membership recruitment drive for CCA Texas. Contestants can participate from shore, by wading or from a boat. The tournament takes place each summer from the Saturday before Memorial Day to Labor Day. The tournament spans the entire Texas Gulf Coast and offers current CCA Texas members the chance to win over $1,000,000 in prizes and scholarships.
Fishing categories include Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Gafftop, Dorado, King Mackerel and Ling (Cobia). There is also a special tagged Redfish Division in which winners receive complete boat and truck combos. In order to ensure a fair and impartial outcome, the tournament is professionally directed. It is also zero-budgeted, which means that the money raised is put back into the event in the form of media, prizes and more scholarships.

The CCA Louisiana STAR (Statewide Tournament and Anglers Rodeo) is in its 21st year of competition. Each year the tournament begins on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend and lasts until Labor Day. During the competition, anglers compete for over $500,000 in prizes by catching fish in the coastal waters for Louisiana. STAR is CCA Louisiana's largest membership drive and boasts over 12,000 participants each year but is open to all CCA members from around the country.
Since the tournament is meant to be a membership drive, it has a little something for all anglers. Its signature division is the Tagged Redfish Division. CCA releases 50 tagged redfish each year, if you are in the tournament and catch one, you win! STAR also has many inshore and offshore divisions with great prizes up for grabs. In addition to all of the adult divisions, STAR has a great youth division as well. New Tide Members (CCA members 17 or younger) are able to enter the tournament free of charge. Once they are registered, they can enter a trout and/or a flounder in five divisions across the Louisiana and Mississippi. At the end of the tournament there is random drawing that determines the five winners of brand new boat, motor and trailer packages.

So join today and share in our passion!
