WHAT IS  CRAPPIEFEST? 

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!!!
