Tagged fish makes angler’s heart sink
When Larry Youngblood of Walterboro landed a slot-sized redfish in Rantowles Creek recently, his excitement quickly waned when he noticed a tag protruding from the fish’s body.
He feared it was a CCA South Carolina STAR tag, which is good for a free Sea Hunt boat, but only for anglers who are registered for the summer-long tournament.
And Youngblood, who had been planning to register for the STAR, had failed to do so before his week-long trip to the coast. He dreaded the thought of this being one of the STAR tags. Luckily for him, the tag turned out to be from a Charleston fishing guide who tagged the fish in May.
With that fish in the cooler, Youngblood did what he’d been meaning to do since Memorial Day. He pulled out his cell phone, went to ccasouthcarolina.com, and signed up for the STAR.
The first two CCA South Carolina members who are registered and catch redfish with an appropriate tag can win one of two Sea Hunt BX 22 BR Bay Boats equipped with a Yamaha 150 and a Wesco aluminum trailer. Each boat package is valued at over $40,000.
The tournament began on Memorial Day and runs through Labor Day. So far, no one has claimed either of the boats. If no registered angler catches one of the 48 tagged redfish that were caught, tagged and released by CCA South Carolina members earlier this year, one lucky winner will be drawn from the list of anglers who have signed up for the tournament.
To participate in this tournament, you must be a member of CCA and register for the tournament. Visit membership.joincca.org/web/Online/Star_Home.aspx.
