CCA Texas STAR officials will release 60 tagged redfish.

Saturday, May 23, is the big event for thousands of fishermen along the Texas Gulf Coast. It’s the first day of the very popular CCA STAR tournament. What makes this tourney so popular? Well, to begin with, 60 tagged reds will be released from Sabine Lake to South Padre Island. The first five of those tagged reds caught is worth a truck, boat, motor and trailer.

This is a tourney that is cheap to enter and is big time fun for kids and adults.
