Need to get some feedback. Some friends of Matthew Carrol are wanting to put together a tourney in his honor, all proceeds to go to a kids fishing charity. Tourney will be at Cedar Creek Lake and probably have weigh in at Caney City but what we need to decide is,
When? Y'all want to do it this fall? or wait till spring? I say Fall.
What charity?
Can anyone help with fish fry? I would be willing to stop fishing early and get back in time to get fish cooking. I have a great fish fry setup. I can borrow folding tables from work and can maybe even get my hands on a scale. I've even got about 125 fillets to donate for the fish fry and will work on getting more.

Y'all chime in!
Who's in?? Can you help out?

Awesome idea!!!

My vote would be for the spring because of end of other tournament trails, busy time of year with the holidays, possible bad weather (cold/rain) plus spring would give more time to do this up right.

Maybe a good idea would be to talk with the heads of Crappie Anglers of Texas, Crappie Fishing Fools or other groups (Wally Marshall for one) to make this a huge event and possibly an annual tournament.

I would be in and could help on a limited basis if it all lines out.

I would think out of over 300 views, that there would be a few more responses. hmmm


Sounds like Spring will be best.
My contact to borrow a scale fell through but If we can't find someone else to loan us one, I will buy one.
I reached out to Wally Marshal but haven't heard back.

If someone else was already working on doing this, please let me know, I'm not trying to step on anyone's toes, just trying to do something nice for a great friend of mine that I will miss forever.


Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated.

setting the date always seems to be the wild card.. you just need to set a date, and either they come or they dont. everybody wont be free on a certain day, so you cant worry abt that. just pick a saturday and unless the weather will be bad, then thats the date. folks who make it a priority will be there.

Only new Matthew for a short while when he moved to Austin area. Great man and honored to have had a chance to spend some time with him. Would love to fish this tournament too.
