You can help the spotted seatrout fishery recovery expeditiously by supporting temporary fishery management measures by TPWD, practicing safe fish-handling techniques and only keeping what you need to eat.

2021 Texas STAR Tournament Announcement

By | 2021Freeze, News

Recognizing the extraordinary impact of the recent winter storm, the CCA Texas 2021 STAR Tournament will feature a significantly revised format. The Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead and Gafftop divisions have been removed entirely from this year’s tournament.

The 2021 STAR will feature three different Tagged Redfish Divisions utilizing a mandatory release format with bigger and better prizes than ever, including $325,000 in college scholarships for youth anglers. While the offshore categories of the tournament will continue as in past years, a soon-to-be-disclosed new category will be added for 2021.

Marine conservation began with recreational anglers, and our continued engagement has never been more important for the future of our fisheries and for marine habitat. We are excited about this year’s Tournament and will be releasing more details on all aspects of the new developments soon.
