Well day one of the American Crappie Trail is in the books now. The field of anglers is as prestigious as it gets. No one got in to the classic unless they qualified the old fashioned way. No “bumping” into a classic birth, no paying your fee’s and not fishing, nothing but hard work and big bags gets you in here.
Upon completion of day one the anglers were treated to a banquet and presentations from most of the sponsors of the tour.
The Lucas Oil folks, a headline sponsor, talked to everyone about how the crappie fishing industry is moving forward and and how the American Crappie Trail anglers are always supporting the product line. If you have never looked at Lucas Oil you are missing out on a great product line for the sportsman.
Rockport rattlers spoke about the devastation in Texas due to the hurricane and how their business is here to support the tour.
Charlie Brewers slider company was present and is a sponsor of the tour. Just so happens I use their crappie baits and believe in their company!
