Here’s one of the best parts. There is no entry fee for anglers to compete. At this time the tournament is limited to the first 100 teams to sign up. Anglers must hold a A.C.A. American Crappie Association membership which gives anglers a year membership with Crappie USA and Outdoor Kids. Students may participate in the tournament from the time they are going into their freshman year (having completed jr. high or middle school) up until the time they have entered college. At least one team member must be of the proceeding age. The other team member may be as young as 12 years of age. Teams must have a boater that is 21 years of age or older.
A mandatory cooler and live-well check will be at D’ARBONNE POINTE, 147 Old Hwy 15, Farmerville, LA from 5:00 AM to 7:30 AM. Anglers will fish from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM on October 12th. Weigh in will also be held at D’Arbonne Pointe. Anglers must be in the weigh in line by 3:00 PM.
******* This is very important: Waters are off limits for pre-fishing from dawn on Oct. 7th to dusk Oct. 10th. Anglers may pre-fish on October 11th but must be off the water at 4:00 PM.
