CCA Texas STAR Guides Division
2018 Winner – Charlie Buchen
It is the hope of Texas STAR and CCA Texas to be able to reward
Texas fishing guides who support marine conservation, and empower them to help recruit more anglers into the CCA mission through this new division.
The winner of this division, will win a Mowdy 26’ CAT, Mercury 225 hp ProXS OptiMax outboard, and custom Coastline trailer.
To be eligible, all guides must possess:
- Current CCA membership and STAR entry
- Valid USCG Captains License
- Current TPWD Guide license
The addition of the CCA Texas Guides Division does not affect any other STAR category, and guides are still excluded from participating in any other division of the tournament…
This division is for Guides only, and no customers or regular STAR anglers will be fishing against guides at any time.
1. All guides must meet the above criteria to win the Mowdy 26’ CAT, Mercury 225 hp ProXS OptiMax outboard, and custom Coastline trailer. 2. All eligible guides who were present when a member of their party catches any fish on the final leaderboard on a paid, or unpaid trip, will be entered into a drawing to win the division, pending polygraphs. Drawing will be held after the final winner board is posted. Entries will be weighted in descending order based upon final standings, with a division-winning fish (including all tagged redfish winners) being worth five entries and a fifth place fish being worth one entry. The guide must be listed on the angler’s Official STAR weigh-in form to receive entries.
*As below, we then attach chances for each guide in the drawing based upon the client/angler’s placement in the FINAL STAR Leaderboard standings:
CCA Texas appreciates the many trip donations made to local chapters to help fund CCA approved projects!
Thank You and Good Luck!!
