A star-studded field of crappie anglers is set to battle it out on Lake Fork in Texas this weekend as the Crappie Masters All American Trail will hold its fourth National Qualifier event of the year on Friday and Saturday.
Last year’s Lake Fork Crappie Masters winners, Josh Jones and Josh Reynolds, will be competing this weekend, as will the dominating father-son duo of Hayden Jeffries and Dan Jeffries.
Some other notable teams that will be competing at Lake Fork include Jordan Sanders and Jason Holleman, Matthew Rogers and Bruce Rogers, and Lamar Bunting and Gene Neumeier.
One thing is for sure: this will not be a tournament that will be easy to win! It will truly be the best of the best on Lake Fork in the Crappie Masters National Qualifier this weekend, and it’s going to take two great days of fishing to take home the $10,000 guaranteed prize to first place.
