A couple of teams you will probably be hearing more about this summer in the crappie tournament news ended up on top of the Crappie Fishermen United of Louisiana tournament on the Ouachita River this past weekend.

The two teams are regulars on the American Crappie Trail which will be coming to the Ouachita in June. Ken Myers and Mark Taylor won the event with seven fish weighing 8.63 pounds. Coming in second were Shannon Porter and Trey Underwood with seven fish weighing 8.29 pounds. Twelve teams competed in the event.

The big crappie were obviously dieting waiting on a big Memorial Day feast! But they’ll be coming. As the river continues to fall, the fishing will continue to rise!
