Crappie USA will host their National Championship on Kentucky and Barkley Lakes out of Paris Landing State Park marina on October 26-28. Over $126,000.00 in prizes will be up for grabs with both Pro and Amateur winners at the Classic receiving a Ranger boat package with Mercury Engines, Minn Kota trolling motors and Humminbird Electronics. Over 400 anglers from 18 states are anticipated to participate in the event.


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.
