first leg of the florida state championship kicks off 2015 on the historic st johns river

Crappie Masters All American Tournament Trail opened up the calander year with the first leg of the Florida State Championship and national qualifier on the St. Johns River, Deland, Florida. Sponsored by Bass Pro Shops, Tracker Marine, Nitro Boats, Humminbird, Minn Kota, and West Volusia Tourism Advertising Authority, anglers from twelve different states participated for over $7,000.00 in cash and prizes and the opportunity to qualify anglers for the 2015 National Championship to be held on Kentucky Lake, Paris, Tennessee.

Crappie Masters and their angler teams had the opportunity to visit the West Volusia area and the city of Deland to fish the historic St Johns River and take advantage of the eclectic downtown area with unique shops, cafes, and outdoor night life.

Pre-fishing for the tournament proved to be challenging for the angler teams with higher currents in the St Johns River and continual cold fronts. However, the St Johns River came through with weights that rival all of the Florida lakes and many lakes across the country.    

2009 National Champions and two time St Johns River Crappie Masters winners, Matt Morgan and Kent Watson took home another St Johns River title along with a check for $2500.00 with a seven fish total weight of 15.79 lbs. In addition to the tournament prize money, the team earned a $250.00 bonus for using E10 gasoline, provided by the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol. Morgan and Watson were spider rigging from their Ranger boat, powered by Mercury Motors, with hair jigs and Road Runner lures in 4 to 5 foot of water catching their crappie just off of the bottom. The team stated they caught over twenty 2 pound crappie during the competition while slow trolling through dollar pads. The team of Morgan and Watson are sponsored by Lucas Oil, Hydro Force, BnM, Minn Kota, Humminbird, Road Runner, Driftmaster, Fat Headz, and Rockport Rattler.
