We would like to thank CCA Florida STAR Tournament for all their help in making the Redfish Classic possible. It is through their dedication to Florida's Fisheries that we are able to release all the redfish caught back into their native waters. We also partner to raise money for the scholarships given out each year during the Star Awards Dinner. To date the Redfish Classic has raised over $40,000 for youth scholarships!!!
