American Crappie Trail Tourney Set This Weekend At Paris Landing State Park

Paris, Tenn.– The American Crappie Trail is set to hold its third event of the 2018 season at Paris Landing State Park. Some 75 teams of anglers from over 15 states will be coming to the tournament, set for May 18 and 19.
American Crappie Trail officials said they could not be more excited to return to Henry County and to work with the Henry County Tourism Authority.  Spectators are invited to watch the Pre-game show with Sam Heaton and Matt Morgan then stay for weigh-in starting around 3 p. m.
The ACT is the highest paying and most prestigious crappie fishing trail in America.
From a fresh and innovative format that includes TV show that airs on Pursuit, Fox Sports Midwest, Fox Sports South, live production weigh in, drive through weigh in, a Ranger Boat at every tournament to the winners, and over 100% payout.  Our events are open to anyone from the first-time tournament angler to the experienced.  With this new format comes new rules.  Make sure to check out the ACT rules at
The tournament will have a major economic impact in the local economy for this 2-day event. Teams will make multiple trips to the lake prior to the event.  ACT is working with anglers in the community and sponsors to develop a conservation minded trail to promote crappie fishing for Paris.

None of this would be possible without sponsors:  Lucas Oil, Protect the Harvest, B’n’M Poles, MidState Seed, Engel Coolers, Frontier Metal, General Tire, Super Clean, Abernathy’s, Rockport Rattler, Power Pole, Ranger Boats, Evinrude, RoadRunner, Charlie Brewer Slider, Mid-South Tackle, Bug Band, Rod Sox, Bobby Garland, American Angler, Skipper Jigs, Crappie Now, Driftmaster, Grizzly Jig, ProBuilt Jig
