From WENK/WTPR by Shannon McFarlin

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 http://www.americancrappietrail.com/rules/.
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

FerrySTOC9 May 17-20




May 17-20 
FerrySTOC 9
Sponsored by Paris Landing Tourism League

Bringing long distance, cross country riders to the Paris Landing area as a base for local area riding and group camping.  Meet Sport Touring and ADV  riders who are passionate and serious about their riding. We ride a little further, a little faster and a little safer than typical motorcyclists. Once again, we anticipate the arrival of riders from places as far away as California, Florida, New York and everywhere in between. Heck, we might even have some Canadians join us again!

FerrySTOC started as an idea during a trip to the Blue Ridge Gathering in the Fall of ’09, an event on the ST-owners.com calendar. (STOC=ST Owners Club is a free, internet based riding club.)  Why not have an event themed on the 4 rivers area and ride the ferries that cross those rivers?  And  ... just to play a little bit on the theme,  let’s have a Gothic based Tinkerbell fairy riding a motorcycle as our trademark. Why not bring more tourists into our local community? As time has passed, this event has grown a loyal following and expanded with suggested routes for the Adventure riders - riders who lust after gravel roads and back woods exploration in rural areas. With Land Between The Lakes  just across the river, this event brings the ADV riders together with long distance sport touring riders, all in the name of fun.


All riders are welcome, regardless of make or model. We do ask that you wear full safety gear, ride within your personal abilities and limits of safety, absolutely NO DRUGS and please, no drinks until kickstands are down for the day. It’s all in the name of fun and getting to visit new friends from around the country.


Contact Randy Collins, 731-695-8416 for more information.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend so that we can be prepared with a head count. Remember to buy local and support our Paris Landing Tourism League that is nice enough to host this event.
