Waldo. Southern Chuter. Green Shiner, Wall Hanger, FishOnLine, Slabmaster, Tracker123, LouisianaFishNut, Shadow, Cajun Dave, Mr & Mrs. Luvtofish, Paw Paw Gene, Prefers Shiners, BigJohn, Juicy. Trophy King….that’s just a FEW of them. Most just use nicknames – like above. And they come from all over, as far away as the internet will reach. Thank goodness for nametags…
They’ll be facing the challenge of a low lake, but that won’t slow down the Crappie.com brotherhood as they hit Lake D’Arbonne for a three-day adventure Thursday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Nov.13. As usual, they’ll be headquartered at the Lake D’Arbonne State Park, but this year they will occupy the big Group Cabin which has plenty of room for eating, sleeping and fishing — in between lies and tall tales that would make Presidential candidates blush.
Before I go further, If you have any questions, call or text Mark Weldon at 318-272-8069. He’ll call or text you back, unless he’s landing a big old slabber knocker crappie somewhere!
Okay, here’s more. The annual Crappie.com gathering at the D’Arbonne State Park is about fun and getting together in person with fellow crappie on-liners who post regularly on the Crappie.com website.They don’t have fancy matching fishing shirts or big wrapped fishing boats. They’re just regular folks who love to fish — for crappie. And they love chatting about their sport on Crappie.com’s Louisiana forum. And in person. They’ll be coming from all over the state. And they love to eat. My, do they love to eat. They have a pot luck dinner Friday night and a fish fry Saturday. Even if you aren’t a “member”, crappie fishermen are welcome to come meet the folks and join in the fun – and food. And food. And …well, you get it.
There will be about a hundred folks for the gathering. They’ll spend most of each day out on the lake crappie hunting. They may hit it just right, even with the lake down.
There are lots of door prizes and a cash pot for the big crappie lander every day. Anybody is welcome and trust me, there are no strangers here. If you want some good fun and fellowship, give it a try.
