We were spoiled with cool temps and a beautiful spring time, but now it feels like Texas again outside as summer is starting to set in. The good news is that with the spawn being completely over, the crappie are now ready to feed heavy and will be grouped up in big numbers all over the state. I have no doubt that I’m preaching to the choir on this one, but right now is the perfect time to go out and stock the freezer for a summertime fish fry. For me, my best bite seems to be on main lake brush and timber anywhere from 8-16ft down. You’ll also notice there are TONS of tiny fry starting to swim around, which is a sign that it is coming time to start downsizing your presentation to match the hatch.


Now for the official business. Last week, the board voted that we are ready to get our tournament season back up and going. We felt that with the proper steps taken, from both the board and the CAT members alike, we can go back to having fun and being competitive. With that being said, we will be holding the next qualifier tournament as scheduled on Lake Tawakoni, June the 20th. This tournament will be held at Duck Cove, and will be formatted using our summertime tournament hours of 6:30am-2:00pm. Weigh-in line closes at 2:30pm.


For all anglers looking to compete, please read the following statement:

As a result of Covid-19, for the foreseeable future, the CAT Board of Directors recommends that anglers participating in all CAT Events (tournaments, meetings, etc.) follow all CDC guidelines regarding social distancing and the utilization of personal protective equipment. All anglers should exercise good judgment: if you are sick, please stay home; if you are in a high-risk category or otherwise feel unsafe at public events, CAT respects your decision to stay home. The health and safety of our members is a top priority for CAT, so we encourage everyone to take responsibility for their own health and safety.

I also understand and agree that I may be disqualified or banned from this event or any other CAT event for violations of the rules or the commitments I am making in this form, and I may not qualify for, or be required to forfeit, any cash or prize offered hereunder. I agree to submit to a Polygraph test or other truth test as a condition of receiving any cash or prize offered as a result of my competition in this tournament.

Long story short, we are trying to protect our anglers, ourselves and ultimately our club. We greatly appreciate everyone’s patience and support throughout a spring when we really weren’t sure at times on how to proceed, as none of us had ever seen a pandemic situation like COVID 19. I for one and very glad that we can go back to fishing and seeing each other again, and I am beyond excited to see how the rest of the 2020 fishing season shapes up. Until we meet again on the water, stay cool out there, catch lots of fish and let’s have some fun catching crappie!
