STAR 2019

As the largest family-friendly saltwater fishing competition in Florida, CCA Florida STAR presented by Yamaha, runs from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day and boasts amazing prizes for anglers of all ages and skill levels.

A unique combination of conservation, data collection and education, plus prizes and scholarships valued at over $500,000, makes CCA Florida STAR the states can’t-miss summer-long fishing competition. No other fishing tournament in Florida has the ability to engage anglers of all ages and experience levels, including non-anglers who can participate and win simply by collecting trash and debris.

Developed by CCA Texas and CCA Louisiana, the STAR competition launched in Florida in 2015 with a focus on technology and conservation. STAR uses the social media-based event to educate the public on the importance of protecting Florida’s marine resources. Recognized as a ‘catch, photo and release’ competition, STAR’s smart phone app eliminates the requirement for anglers to harvest or capture and transport fish and constantly promotes the proper handling of all species in the competition.

The 101-day, family friendly angling competition offers over $500,000 in prizes in 17 divisions including tagged, non-tagged, inshore and offshore. Anglers have their shot at prizes from brand new boat, motor and trailer packages, cash, marine electronics, Yamaha motors, all-terrain vehicles, scholarships and much more.
