Jaevon Riley, of Moss Point, Mississippi, caught a 26.35-pound snapper and claimed the $5,000 tackle package from STAR.
"I'm so happy that CCA extended its offshore boundary to include Mississippi anglers this year," said Riley. "I've been telling everyone to sign up but I am sure glad no one beat me."
In 2013, the CCA Louisiana STAR extended its offshore boundaries to the Mississippi/Alabama line for each of its four divisions: Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Dorado and Lemonfish.
STAR wraps up its 19th year on Labor Day.
