CCA Florida STAR Tournament 2015

CCA Florida STAR Tournament 2015
Eighty specially tagged redfish are the STAR attraction in the inaugural CCA Florida State-wide Tournament and Anglers Rodeo (STAR). The kick-off is at sunrise on Saturday, May 23, 2015, Memorial Day weekend and ends at 5 p.m., September 7, 2015, Labor Day offering participants a total of 108 fishing days! This will be one of the most angler inclusive tournaments in the state of Florida and will provide all anglers an opportunity to participate.

With nearly $500,000 in prizes, STAR anticipates recruiting over 4,500 participants, who will each have an opportunity to win, making it Florida’s largest saltwater fishing tournament. STAR Florida is a Catch & Photo tournament designed to educate the general public about the importance of conservation of Florida’s marine resources. The format encourages sportsmen and sportswomen of all ages to protect and conserve Florida’s fishery resources for future viability and availability for all recreational anglers. By promoting participation in STAR, CCA Florida will aid in the collection of significant scientific data while providing anglers of all skill levels with the opportunity to participate in a family-friendly angling competition. All STAR participants should develop a heightened appreciation for the challenges facing Florida’s fishery resources and should thereby develop a newfound awareness of the efforts needed to preserve them. 

The signature division, STAR tagged redfish, will have Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and CCA Florida officials releasing up to 80 STAR tagged redfish along the west coast of Florida several days prior to the start of the tournament. These specially tagged redfish will be released throughout hundreds of miles of Florida’s gulf coast and bays, from Pensacola to the Everglades National Park. 

In addition to the Tagged redfish division, STAR will feature an Open, Ladies, Youth, Fly, Kayak and Professional Guides division with the eligible species being spotted seatrout, snook, cobia and sheepshead. 

Another featured division which is unique only to Florida STAR is the Conservation Division. This division is designed to reward anglers that provide the most catch data on all fish caught and released, no matter what species or size, while fishing in the STAR tournament. The non-tournament species data combined with the tournament species catch data will be extremely instrumental in science based fisheries management. Therefore the quantity and quality of the catch data provided via the STAR Smart phone application will be a benchmark initiative.
