Since Crappie Masters tournament payouts are based on the number of entries in the tournament, it’s impossible to know just how much money is on the table for the winners. But, here’s a good estimate, provided by Crappie Masters President Mike Vallentine.
Based upon 70 teams entering the Louisiana State Championship on D’Arbonne Feb. 26 & 27, there would be around $25,000.00 in cash and prizes paid through 14 places. Here’s the way that payout would go for the top five teams:
Big fish of the tournament would pay $1,000.00
More teams means more money for the winners. Considering angler teams can weigh in a 7-fish limit each day, that would mean the winning catch would tally up to a value of about $358 a fish. Not bad. GET THE NET!
