Crappie USA Inc., “America’s Premier National Crappie Fishing Tournament Organization” will return to Kentucky/Barkley Lakes near Paris, Tennessee on April 11, 2009. Anglers will be fishing for a 7-fish limit of crappie, which could net them a check along with the opportunity to advance to the regional event and the Cabela’s Crappie USA Classic, the most prestigious event in crappie fishing today.                 

 A pre-tournament seminar will be held on Friday evening at the Econolodge in Paris, Tennessee. Sign up will begin at 5:00pm with the meeting and a National Sponsor Field Test Product Drawing starting at 7:00pm local time. This seminar is open to the public. For those not fishing the event, we encourage you to come out to this meeting and meet the top crappie anglers in the region.

The tournament weigh-in will be held on Saturday at the Paris Landing State Park & Resort, Hwy 79N beginning at 3:00pm. This is the perfect opportunity for non-competitors to come and learn how the big ones are caught. Interviews of the top 5 teams will be conducted after the weigh in.

The Village of Paris and Paris Landing would like to welcome all Crappie USA anglers and their guest to the area and hope they take the opportunity to enjoy the many attractions in the area. For more information on the area call: 1-800-345-1103 or visit their website at:

Host lodging for the event will be the Econolodge, 1297 E Wood Street, Paris, Tennessee. For reservations call: 731-642-8881. Rooms maybe limited so make your reservations early and mention Crappie USA.

Entry fees in all qualifying tournaments are $100.00 per team in the Amateur Division and $200.00 in the Semi-Pro Division. There is an optional $10.00 (Per Team) Big Fish Pot.
