CRAPPIE USA CLASSIC RESULTS
Last week’s two-day Crappie USA Classic on Kentucky and Barkley Lakes out
of Paris Landing State Park saw teams battling cold, wind and stubborn big
fish.. In the event, over 370 top anglers from 15 different states were
competing for cash and prizes, totaling $126,900.00 total payback.
Rising to the challenge was the team of Jim Freeman and Garrett Bridges,
both of Eddyville, Kentucky as they first place in the Pro Division with a
total weight of 18.20 pounds. The team fished Barkley Lake over man-made
cover, vertically jigging with some jigs tipped with live bait and
targeting shallow water.
TJ Todd and Brian Hatch, both of Dyersburg, Tennessee were the first place
winners in the Amateur Division with a total weight of 17.88 pounds and
took home the 188C Ranger boat with Mercury, Minn Kota and Humminbird
package, plus the B 'n' M Bonus $500.00 and Ranger Cup Bonus $250.00. The
team fish South of Leatherwood Resort following fish in 5 – 6 feet of
water using orange/chartreuse jigs tipped with live bait to land 30 fish
for the tournament.
Big fish were quite challenging for the talented field as slabs were
somewhat tough to come by. Big fish of the tournament was a 2.17-pound
dandy but very few fish were caught that reached the 2-pound mark.
