Huge Crappie Events Scheduled for This Fall in Shreveport
In the world of competitive crappie fishing (yes, that's a sport) this would be somewhat akin to football's Super Bowl or baseball's World Series.
One hundred of the top crappie-fishing teams in America will converge on Shreveport to compete on the Red River, September 30 through October 2, 2021 in the third annual Mr. Crappie® Invitational Classic.
Billed as the richest crappie tournament in the world, competitors will vie for their share of the $250,000 in prize money!
The public is invited to the weigh in's scheduled as follows:
September 30, Day 1 weigh-in will be held at the Red River South Marina parking lot starting at 3:00 pm.
October 1 and 2, Days 2 and 3, weigh-ins will be held at the Shreveport Convention Center at 3:00 pm.
In conjunction with the Mr. Crappie Classic, and courtesy of the Shreveport/Bossier Sports Commission and the Red River Waterway Commission, the public is invited to the third annual Crappie Expo!
October 1 through October 3, over one hundred crappie-related companies from all over America will gather in the Shreveport Convention Center to display all the latest and greatest crappie fishing products. This includes everything from boat manufacturers and tackle dealers to fishing guides.
The event will also be loaded with seminars and concerts and will feature "The World’s Largest Crappie Fry!" Fresh crappie will be served on Saturday, October 2, from 11:00 am until they run out of crappie fillets. FREE fried crappie to all attendees and all vendors! You can't beat the price!
