(1) Raymond & Jim Fowler - 9.62
(2) Tracy & Scott Humber - 8.92
(3) Ray Trull & Jason Perkins - 8.90
(4) Jessie & Nonna Wright - 8.16
(5) Tim Fields & Phillip - 8.07

Big Fish
Holder and Holder - 2.23

The team of Charlie and Ray finished 10th weighing 7.15. We had a great time with all the West Alabama crappie members and were happy to catch the fish we did on our 2nd ever trip to Tuscaloosa Lake. We caught all our fish in 7 to 10 foot of water above treasure Island. We were slow trolling double minnow rigs around cover.
It seems the fish up in he grass were better and more numerous.

Ray we caught all of our fish on the outside edge of the grass. None in the grass and very few out away from the grass. We were casting jigs under a weighted cork, fishing anywhere from 4' deep early to 2 1/2' deep later during the day. We messed up though. We thought with the sun comin out and the water warming a little they would move up under the grass. We were wrong. According to one report, from a feller that had a better stringer than we did, they were around 6' deep in the afternoon. We still had a great time and would like to see others joins us in upcoming tourneys. Visit our web site at

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crank baits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
