The 2012 CCA Louisiana STAR is proud to announce the Youth Division winners as well as the Temple Fork Outfitters bonus drawing winners from this year's tournament.
The Louisiana Youth Division, sponsored by Academy Sports + Outdoors for kids 18 years of age and under, is divided into four divisions: East, Southeast, Southwest and West. Winners will receive a 14' Weldbilt boat with a 15hp Mercury Four-Stroke on a trailer from Mike Gerald's Trailer Depot. Youth winners are chosen via a random drawing. The winners for this year are: Bryce Clark of Kenner, East; Isabelle Schmitt of Baton Rouge, Southeast; Brayton Broussard of Maurice, Southwest; and Jeremy Harvey of Lake Charles, West.
The Mississippi Youth Division winner, sponsored by Carolina Skiff for kids 18 years of age and younger, will win a 12' Carolina Skiff with a 15hp Mercury Four Stroke on a Sport Trail trailer. The winner of the Mississippi Youth Division is Abe Doxey of Diamondhead.
For the second year in a row, Temple Fork Outfitters has added a bonus prize to the STAR tournament. Any CCA Louisiana STAR-registered angler weighing in an eligible speckled trout at an official weigh station, and taken in accordance with the rules of the CCA Louisiana STAR Fly Fish and Kayak Divisions, had their name placed in the "TFO Bonus Drawing". TFO is giving away one TFO fly rod valued at $250 and four TFO/Gary Loomis's Saltwater Signature Series baitcasters, which are valued at $100 a piece. Any qualified entrant was eligible for the TFO drawing, with the exception of the winners of those divisions. The winners of the TFO rods are: John Holder of Youngsville, Kayak West Division; Luke Beslin of Rayne, Kayak Southwest Division; Sonya Hebert of Baton Rouge, Kayak Southeast Division; and Perry Watts of Terrytown, Kayak East Division. The Flyfish Division TFO winner is Ben Roussel of Baton Rouge.
