CCA SC STAR Tournament

STAR Tournament
Catch a redfish, win a Polaris Ranger!

Redfish Division starts May 27

CCA South Carolina is gearing up for the Redfish Division of the 2023 STAR Tournament, and two lucky anglers can win a fully-rigged Polaris Ranger Crew SP 570 Premium. But you must be registered to win, so get that done before you get on the water.

And this year, CCA SC has done even more to help anglers win. In years past, they tagged and released 50 to 60 redfish up and down the SC coast. This year, they’ve tagged and released 100.

In numerous years, anglers who were not registered for the STAR caught tagged redfish from that year, and were not eligible to win. Don’t be that guy!

CCA SC executive director Scott Whitaker is excited about this year’s STAR.

“The STAR Tournament allows every registered member a legitimate chance to win,” he said. “We release the tagged redfish with the hopes they will be caught each year, and we look forward to seeing and hearing about the great stories that accompany the catches throughout the season.”

Just go fishing!

The STAR Tournament brings together anglers of all experience levels with the idea of recruiting new and returning anglers of all ages into conservation and marine stewardship. Anglers can fish more than 100 days this summer with only one entry fee that is less than a tank of fuel.

CCA STAR Co-Chairman Keith Brown said it’s just one more reason to go fishing, and to be a part of a great organization that seeks to make the state’s fishing better.

“CCA SC’s 30+ year tradition in conservation is anchored in passion for the resource and a growing group of active supporters for marine resource advocacy, habitat, sound science and angler education,” said Brown. “It’s one more reason to go fishing and to join CCA SC and our conservation mission along the way.”

Over the years, CCA SC has taken part, and led the way, in many projects that are aimed at improving our coastal resources, for the fish and fishermen.

The organization has been instrumental in oyster reef recycling restoration, creating and establishing nearshore and offshore artificial reefs, implementing critical fisheries conservation measures, and funding much-needed scientific research for the improvement of the Palmetto State’s marine resources and improving recreational saltwater angling.

North Carolina anglers, don’t miss out on this! Some of the tagged redfish have ventured across state lines and been caught in North Carolina’s waters. The state you live in doesn’t limit you from winning. You just have to be registered before you hook that fish.
