Gadsden, AL, February 19, 2018– The American Crappie Trail is set to open the 2018 season on Neely Henry Lake in Gadsden AL. The ACT is the highest paying and most prestigious crappie fishing trail in America. We will bring teams of anglers from over 15 states to town on March 16th & 17th 2018.

From a fresh and innovative format that includes TV show that airs on Pursuit, Fox Sports Midwest, Fox Sports South, live production weigh in, drive through weigh in, a Ranger Boat at every tournament to the winners, and over 100% payout.  Our events are open to anyone from the first-time tournament angler to the experienced.  With this new format comes new rules.  Make sure to check out the ACT rules at

Most teams will make multiple trips to the lake prior to the event.  ACT is working with anglers in the community and sponsors to develop a conservation minded trail to promote crappie fishing for Gadsden, AL.  None of this would be possible without our fantastic sponsors:  Lucas Oil, Protect the Harvest, B’n’M Poles, MidState Seed, Engel Coolers, Frontier Metal, General Tire, Super Clean, Abernathy’s, Rockport Rattler, Power Pole, Ranger Boats, Evinrude, RoadRunner, Charlie Brewer Slider, Mid-South Tackle, Bug Band, Rod Sox, Bobby Garland, American Angler, Skipper Jigs, Crappie Now, Driftmaster, Grizzly Jig, ProBuilt Jig
