Florida's largest family-friendly fishing competition
May 27 to September 4, 2023!

Fish one day, some days or every day - win awesome prizes with a single catch!

West Marine CCA Florida STAR presented by Yamaha, boasts amazing prizes, is the largest family-friendly saltwater fishing competition in Florida and begins Memorial Day weekend.

A unique combination of conservation, data collection, and education, plus prizes and scholarships valued at almost $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 and includes non-anglers who can participate and win simply by collecting trash and debris.

The STAR competition launched in Florida in 2015 with a focus on technology and conservation. STAR uses social media-based events to educate the public on the importance of protecting Florida’s marine resources. Recognized as a ‘catch, photo and release’ competition, STAR’s smartphone 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.

To date, STAR has awarded over 2.1 million dollars in prizes with $700,000 of that being in college scholarships and non-angling participants have gathered over 7,600 five-gallon buckets of garbage.

With so many ways to win amazing prizes and help protect our marine resources, now is the time to get registered and make fishing in Florida more rewarding this summer.

15 Divisions:

  • including tagged, non-tagged, inshore and offshore, Ladies and Youth with species like - Redfish, Trout, Snook, Tarpon, Grouper, Kingfish and Mahi-Mahi.

$500,000 in Prizes:

  • Boats, motor and trailer packages, cash, marine electronics, Yamaha motors, tackle, scholarships, Gift certificates and much more
