Nothing depresses a coastal angler more than catching a redfish tagged for the summer-long Coastal Conservation Association Texas STAR Tournament and realizing that he or she would have won and boat and motor had they just signed up.
The STAR tournament entry fee is still $20 for ages 18 and up. Membership to CCA is $25 annually, for a total of $45. For anglers ages 6-17, the “New Tide” membership is $10 and the STAR entry is free, but the youngster still needs to be registered to win a prize or scholarship.
Everyone ages 21 and older who register through May 25 will automatically be entered into the drawing for all of the prizes, and everyone age 20 and under who register through May 25 will automatically be entered for all prizes except the grand prize.
