Jay Stone and John Godwin are Crappie Masters Champions PDF Print

Ruston, Louisiana along with Union, Claiborne, and Jackson Parishes played host to a one-day national qualifier on Lakes D’Arbonne, Caney, and Claiborne on Saturday, April 18th. This much anticipated event did not disappoint as 112 anglers from thirteen different states reported catching large numbers of crappie daily during pre fishing. A lunchtime media day was held on the new D’Arbonne Pointe, which helped generate much interest for this first time Crappie Masters tournament in Louisiana. Once again, local knowledge played a major role in the outcome.

First time tournament participants, Jay Stone and John Godwin were the first team to make their way to the scales after fishing for only five and a half hours. Their decision to stop early paid off by weighing the top weight of the tournament with 12.30 pounds and claiming their first Crappie Masters win. The team reported catching their winning fish by long line trolling with their BnM Duck Commander Series rods, pulling Lake Fork Sickle Tail Baby Shads and Big Bite Curly Tails in 22 foot of water and catching fish at 9 foot deep on Lake Caney. They were using Mercury Motor, Minn Kota Trolling Motor, and Humminbird Electronics. Stone and Godwin stated the key to victory was “covering lots of water and keeping their baits in the strike zone.” The team took home check totaling $4350.00 which included a $100.00 bonus for using Lake Fork Sickle Tail Baby Shads and a $250.00 bonus, donated by the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol, for using E10 gasoline in their boat motor. Stone and Godwin are sponsored by BnM Poles, Driftmaster, Crappie Magnet, Minn Kota, and Humminbird.
