Crappiefest Tournament


Lake Fork Trophy Lures
Emory, Texas

More Info

In just five short years, CAT's "Crappiefest" Tournament has become the largest and richest "Big Crappie" Tournament in the Country! Each angler weighs in just one crappie, and you can fish from a boat, the bank, a dock, a kayak or a tube. You can even wade-fish if you like! With a tournament format like this, every single angler, regardless of skill level, has a chance to win serious cash! Crappie anglers of all ages can fish and the entry fees are reasonable enough to bring the whole family. The entry fee for adults is $75 and junior anglers (17 and under) fish for free.

The top twenty places will all pay out cash.
1st place will pay out a minimum of $5,000 in cash.
Monster Crappie Bonus (3+ pound crappie) is minimum of $7,500 in cash.
The entry fee is only $75 per person (Plus a $5 convenience fee for online registration)
CAT has teamed up with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) and 1/3rd of all entry fees will be donated by CAT to the NOCC
