Crappie Masters is set to return to the Lone Star State in Emory, Texas on legendary Lake Fork this weekend, April 1st and 2nd, for the fourth National Qualifier event of the 2022 Season.
This tournament is hosted by Emory Tourism. Weigh-in for both days will be at The Minnow Bucket Marina.
Lake Fork contains both white and black crappie, but the black crappie are the largest in population. The Crappie Masters family is very excited to be returning to Emory, Texas for this national qualifier.
WHAT’S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW ON LAKE FORK
Lake Fork is a massive body of water that is full of standing timber throughout the whole lake, but as of right now it is down approximately 6 feet below its normal pool for this time of the year.
Right now we are seeing fish in all stages out on beautiful Lake Fork, with some fish still in their pre-spawn pattern waiting to pull up to spawn, some fish committed to the bank and are spawning, and a few fish that have spawned out that are heading back to deeper water.
“I believe we will see the winning team bring in fish that are in all three stages: pre-spawn, spawn, and post-spawn. This week the winning team will likely be the team that can cover a lot of water throughout the tournament days and find fish that are willing to bite,” says Blake Jackson, Tournament Director for Crappie Masters.
WEIGHTS TO EXPECT
Over two days of competition at Lake Fork this weekend, you can expect weights to top the 35 lb mark after the scales are closed on Championship Saturday. You can expect the CarZone USA Big Fish award to be won by breaking that 3 lb mark.
