Don't miss out on the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) S*T*A*R fishing tournament, the largest family-friendly fishing competition in Florida! The tournament begins July 1, 2020, and ends Oct. 4, 2020.

Fishing SunsetCompete for almost $500,000 in prizes, including boats, motors, scholarships, and more!

Because the the Punta Gorda/Englewood Beach Visitor & Convention Bureau sponsored the STAR's signature category, iHeart Radio Tagged Redfish Division, eight tagged redfish were released in Charlotte County waters. As you can imagine, this increases the shot a registered participant may land a major prize.

In case you need further incentive, during the 2019 competition, two anglers each caught tagged redfish in Charlotte County waters, and both won a boat, Yamaha motor and trailer!

As an added bonus, if you catch the first tagged dolphin, you could win $10,000 in cash or scholarship.
