Championship Issue

From the Editor
Putting a finger on one specific thing that sets great fishermen apart is difficult to do. Is it hard work or experi- ence? I’ve known fish- ermen who have both yet they never quite reached the top level.
So what is the difference? Maybe
it’s concentration. By concentrating, I mean paying attention the last thirty minutes of
a tournament when you’re tired, waves are crashing on the boat and you want to go home. Staying focused.
When a foot- ball receiver drops
a pass that hits his
hands, he probably lost concentration. He was arm fighting with the defender or he looked up field a second before the ball reached
his hands. If you’ve played golf, you know the result of losing concentration during your swing.
It’s no differ- ent in crappie fishing.
Look up to watch another boat and you miss a hit on pole #5. You watch a deer on the bank and you’re two seconds slow grabbing the net for your partner.
Concentration is bearing down and
paying attention. That’s difficult because a full day of fishing is tiring. It’s mentally draining to pay attention for hours. I’ve spent time with many of the best crappie fishermen in the country and they are great at staying focused.
So does a
fisherman stay at peak mental intensity for nine hours. I don’t think that’s possible. More likely, much of fishing is repeated actions. Watching
pole tips, for example, is something a slow troller does so his reaction is instinct. A line quits moving or a tip raises a half inch, grabbing the pole is instinct. The fisherman is paying attention but is sort of on autopilot.
So is concen- tration the difference?
It’s definitely an im- portant factor. Enough on concen- brain is tired.
Good fishin’ & God Bless,

The angler team of the year isn’t an award bestowed
upon a team. It isn’t just a win on their home lake. And it isn’t luck, because six tournaments are in the mix when totaling points. It is dif- ficult to achieve and is a respected accomplishment. This year was a prime example when it took amaz- ing finishes to win the title. Here’s a look at the 2018 Angler Team of the Year (AOY) results.
First Place: Barry Morrow & Chad Maupin
To win the AOY title was
no easy task. The team had three
first place finishes, a second, third
and tenth...a dream year that may
never be topped again. Although
not part of the points, they capped the year with a 10th place finish in the Na- tional Champion- ship tournament.
“We fished against the best
crappie fishermen
across the country,” say Morrow.
“We are limited in the number of
tournaments we can fish but were
hoping we could improve on our
sixth place finish last year but

really had no expectations. We got lucky in Mississippi with a second and a third. Every tournament we went to people brought it up.”
Maupin says, “It’s been one of those years that can be called
“unbelievable”. We got some good equipment including Power Poles to help us out on lakes like Grena- da and Washington. We had a lot of pressure on us here in the one-pole tournament and ended up winning.
That’s a tournament where we had a game plan that worked, but did have to have someone jump our boat to get it running in the last hour.”

Second Place: Paul and Elizabeth
“You would think that two first place and three seconds would have given us a win this year,”
says Paul Turner. “But it’s not top ten finishes any more. It’s hard to believe we earned the points we did to come in second. But it comes down to having a good one-pole tournament and we came in 11th
at Lake Fork. We needed in the top five. I learned it’s best to figure out which one-pole lake you’ll fish and spend a lot of time practicing on it.
“Morrow and Maupin had an even better year, one that prob- ably won’t be equaled again, and had a couple tournaments on their home lake and they made the most of it. Congratulations to them for a
great year. It was
an exciting race and we enjoyed
Elizabeth Turner says, “I
didn’t get to fish as much as I want- ed this year but I’m happy we got second place.”
Third Place: Mike Baker & Tom- my Skarlis
“We made a conscious de- cision early in the year to go for it,” says Baker. “We wanted to make a run for the points. We put our head down and gave it all we had. I’m not sure how many tournaments
we fished, but the one that hurt was on my home lake here in Missouri. Our best ones were at Mississippi and D’Arbonne.”
Scarlis says, “How we fished was to win
tournaments. We didn’t change strategy just for AOY. Our goal was to have six top ten finishes with a couple being really good. That would work
on some years but not this year. Turner-Turner and Morrow-Maupin were both on fire. We got to a point we were just trying to get the best finish we could. A few times we turned nothing into something so I’m happy with our year and re- spectable finish.”

Rookie Team of the Year
by Tim Huffman
Eric Cagle said he and McDonald did not start out after rookie of the year. The fact was they didn’t even know the award existed. They planned to fish three tournaments.
“We went to Florida, Weiss and the Alabama River tourna- ments. We were very fortunate
to finish in the top ten in all three tournaments. Along the way we learned about the Rookie race. My
partner looked and thought we had it wrapped up but a week and a half before the Truman tournament we learned we were tied and decided to make the eleven hour drive to Truman for the last tournament of

the year. We got lucky and finished second place out of over 100 teams. We lost the tournament by 1/100 of a pound but won the rookie race. “We enjoy fishing but don’t do it half way. We prepare and work at it.
“Crappie Masters is a great organization and they do a lot of
the little things right. For example, for the last Truman tournament, we drove all night and went straight to the lake to fish without sleep. Mike checked on us to see how we were doing, thanked us for making the trip and told us was glad we were here. He didn’t have to do that. Crappie Masters runs a great trail
and they appreciate the fishermen.”
2nd Place- Rookie
Aaron Frederick & David Ash
“We started the year going for it,” says Ash. “We lost a grand- baby so that was our driving force to make the Rookie Team of the

Year. We started in Carlyle, Illinois. Alabama helped us with a second place finish and it built our confi- dence. Our worse tournament was on Lake of the Ozarks, our home lake. The wind and weather was really rough on us. It was a good race but we lost by six points.”
“Lilly’s Legacy was started by my daughter. Lilly passed away two days before her due date. She had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck.
“I got to fish with my son- in-law and we had a ball through the good and the bad.”

Carlyle Lake
Oct 20, 2018 Early Bird Qualifier
High winds and a major cold front created problems for the 43 teams but some good weights were brought to the scales. Local fishermen Anthony Kannall and Mike Fields topped the field with
a huge Carlyle weight of 11.27 for seven fish with a 2.85 kicker. Expe- rience on the lake and good prefish- ing paid big dividends. Tournament day started right with the 2.85 slab
followed about ten minutes later with a 2.30. When the wind got strong the bite went away but they had their fish before that happened. They corked with red-chartreuse jigs in 7 to 10 feet of water over brushpiles on the main lake. They won $3,500 for first, $602 for big fish and a $250 E-10 fuel bonus.
Charles and Travis Bunting took second with 10.67 pounds,
a weight that would normally
put them in the winner’s circle
on this lake. They spider rigged
BnM Poles catching fish at 8 to
13 feet using Muddy Water 2-inch black-glow on the new Whack’em 5/16-ounce orange-glow head. Teamwork was critical in the wind with Charlie baiting hooks and tak- ing care of fish while Travis tended electronics and the trolling motor. They won $1,750.
Jim Dant and Donny Zufall took third and won $875 on Bob- by Garland 3-inch Gumdrop Slab Slay’R’s in 7 to 9 feet of water. Big Fish: Anthony Kannell and Mike Fields with a 2.85-pound slab. Top male-female team was Jackie and Holly Linton with 7.99 pounds.

Jenko Fishing
By Tim Huffman

“The Crappie Masters and Jenko Fishing Fish-Off Challenge,” says Crappie Masters Brian Sow- ers, “was a year in the making. At our tournaments, we picked two teams at random and those two fished against each other during the tournament. The winner moved on to qualify for the semi-finals. That continued until our final tourna- ment at Truman to qualify to fish in the Challenge.”
Sowers says the event was strictly for fun and some bragging rights. Chris Dudgeon and Bo Sheppard earned a spot and so did the top Jenko sponsored team, Ky- ler Beckmann and Shannon Beck- mann. Representing Jenko Fishing was Tony and Mike Sheppard.
“The teams had one goal in beat Mike Vallentine and John Godwin. However, when the weigh-in was finished, Vallen-
tine and Godwin were the winners with a 6.73 pound stringer. Second place, Sheppard/Sheppard 6.38; Dudgeon/Sheppard 5.83 and Beck- mann/Beckmann with 5.14.”
“It was a fun event for peo- ple to come to Everhart’s Outdoors, enjoy some hot dogs and fun. And, they got to meet a real celebrity, John Godwin of Duck Dynasty. It was a part of our Crappie Masters Championship week at Truman.”



Each year many of the Crappie Master sponsors attend the Showcase and Registration event for the purpose of meeting the fish- ermen and displaying their prod- ucts. The following were sponsors attending.
Jenko Fishing. “We have a Slasher Jighead,” says Tony Shep- pard. “Also a French Fry Hybrid tube with flukes above the tail and it has a solid body. We also have the Curly Fry with a curly tail and flutes. I like the solid body baits and our baits are scented with garlic and baitfish. They are soft but durable, the same material as we use in our bass baits. It’s a hand poured bait.
“We also have the signa- ture series Kevin Rogers pole. It’s a good rod with lots of backbone good for fishing lakes like Truman where you have to get them out quickly.”
rattles in the 3-inch tubes. The rattles should work great in muddy water to help the fish find it.”
Power Pole. Greg Watts says, “We’re here because we have a tool that’s been out for about 18 years. The crappie guys use our anchors in shallow water, and our Drift Paddles in deep water when the wind is blowing. The Paddles operate much like a drift sock to control speed. Our display on the back of the truck draws a lot of attention, but it’s ideal for showing how the poles work. We can show operation, show the pumps, how to program or anything else a fisher- man wants to know or see.”
Offshore Tackle. “Offshore makes all kind of trolling accesso- ries for many species,” says Cory Batterson. “They came into the crappie market with planer boards to pull crankbaits, get baits away from the boat and spread them out.
Sponsor & Vendor
Crappieholic. Owner Jerry McCready says, “The idea for our shirts came in October, 2010 after being unable to find a crappie fish- ing shirt at Bass Pro. Six shirts and a fishing trip later the adventure started. I printed six for my fami- ly. Everybody else who seen them wanted one. We put them on Face- book and our next printing was 150 shirts. From there the domino ef- fect started. I still have t-shirts and am working into the dry-fit market to step up our caliber of product.”
Midsouth Tackle. Phyllis Hudson says, “We have two new jigs we call the Crappieholic, they were requested by Jerry McCready. The chartreuse glitter Junebug tail should work great here.”
“We have a Pro Series jig with a 1⁄4-ounce head, 2/0 hook and eyes,” says Doyle Hudson. “It goes good with our 3-inch Pro Series tubes. Some fishermen are using

They’ve got a smaller board that is less expensive and non-direction- al just for pulling crankbaits for crappie. They also have a tuner for crankbaits that works great without breaking the bill of the crankbait.”
Timmy Tom Jigs. Tim Cumbie. “I’m here to give away jigs and talk to fishermen about us- ing weedless jigs and hook options. Yesterday, here at Truman, I started with regular jigs but after about three hours I got tired of hanging up too much. I went to a weedless jig that allowed me to get into the heavy brush.”
Pro Bilt Jigs. “We’re pro- moting our jigs to the top crappie fishermen in the country,” says Shannon Cure. “Our jigheads range from 1/16- to 1/4-ounce. They are in bright colors and we offer big hooks. A 1/16-ounce has a #1 hook, a 1/8 and 1/4 a 2/0 hook. We offer T-Rex for Grenada, for catching the dinosaurs. The Game Changer has a regular hook and the Extreme has a sickle hook. The Extreme has holographic, highly reflective eyes. The Capps/Coleman Super-Grip has four barbs.”
Foxy Fishing Gear. “I have a line of women’s clothing for those who hunt and fish,” says Leann Howard. “They are com- fortable SPF 30, lightweight and dries quickly. I have hunting pants with legs that cinch at the bottom to keep bugs out. Our clothing looks cool without being too girly. I believe everyone should have an option when choosing clothing.”
HH Rods & Reels. Eric Howard says, “We have a lot of rods. Each was designed by fisher- men who specialize in a technique. For example, I talked to fishermen who shoot docks in Georgia to help design the Dock Shooter with the best characteristics possible. Same for longlining, casting and pushing. We’ve been to

RFA, Renewable Fuels Association. Robert White “A couple of years ago we teamed with Crappie Masters to become a co-title sponsor of the tournament trail. It’s an opportunity for us
to highlight the benefits of using ethanol in marine engines and also to combat the misinformation about the compatibility of the ethanol blends. The fishermen are in their boats a lot and need them to be dependable. We know that our fuel can do that for them. We have now completed four years with every winning team using 10-peercent ethanol.”
Missouri Corn Growers Association. Director of Market- ing Development, Bradley Schad, says, “The Missouri Corn Growers are in their sixth year as a Crappie Masters sponsor. Kevin Jones and Billy Don Surface do a great job on social media and just getting out there and spreading the news. They are at most of the tournaments
and have been great advocates for ethanol. The fuel industry keeps putting out false reports about how the ethanol industry is trying to put
E-15 in boat motors but that is not true. E15 is for cars year 2000 or newer. It’s required that E10 must be available if E15 is there.”
Wyld Gear. “We are a Wyo- ming based company,” says com- pany rep Mike Stillwell. “We have coolers. What sets up apart from the others is we have a Divided Se- ries that has an integrated, insulated divider in our 50 and 75. Heat and cool doesn’t migrate from side to side. We build a cooler that is not just a box for ice, they look good and have accessories like a tap that goes on the drain for drinks, rod holders, ice packs and more. They come in 11 colors.”
Clinton Tourism. Director Erica Barnhart says, “We are proud to be a sponsor
and to have the
national champi-
onship here. We
are excited about
that. We’ve loved
seeing a bunch of
boats and trucks
here in town all
this week. We
want to promote
fishing but also the Clinton’s his- toric, downtown square, beautiful and fully functioning. We have lots of shopping and restaurants. We have the Katy Trail.”
RodSox and LakeFork Lures. “We are delighted to be here at the tournament,” says Anne Parker. “We are proud sponsors of Crappie Masters and have several fishermen who are on our pro staff here at the tournament. I get to several tournaments each year and love being with the fishermen and discussing products and answering questions. We have quality items and enjoy showing them. It’s been fun watching Crappie Masters grow and seeing the fishermen use our products.”

Practice Fishing
Paul Turner
by Tim Huffman
Practice Day Stats
Lake: Truman Lake, Monday, Sept 24
Event: National Championship Water: Very good condition, mid- 70’s
Weather: Overcast, low 70, high 76, calm to light SE wind
Practice-- It’s fun getting to share a boat and fish with a professional fisherman. It’s easy to get to know someone in the close confines of a front deck. Such was the case when Paul Turner hauled me around for a practice day. A third member in the boat was his hound dog.
Paul arrived in Clinton on Saturday and fished Sunday. “I trolled and learned that I better get my jig pole out and get to work.
The fish are not suspend- ing in open water right now. I was looking for fish that others wouldn’t be on. I’ve won sever-
al tournaments just by
looking for areas where
other fishermen weren’t
fishing. The last tourna-
ment here, I caught 50
to 75 fish each day. But
right now it’s not working for me. I believe it’s because the water is up a little and the fish pulled into the wood.”
Monday was a jigging day. Turner grew up jigging so enjoys it. However, he said the best jig fishermen in the world live right here and it’s difficult to beat them at what they do best and on their
home lake.
Our goal was simple: find fish in the wood, learn a pattern and find big fish. We started a few minutes from the boat ramp in the Grand arm
After an hour of fishing, Turner said, “I’m hoping we find seven big fish. So far we are fishing the hedge trees along the channel and have caught a few half-pound fish. I’m wanting some big fish and

Credentials: Born 1976. Fishes 200 days a year. 2018 included a win at Carlyle Lake IL, and Mark Twain, MO. The team also had three second-place finishes. They won male-female Angler Team of the Year and finished second overall for AOY.

to find the right depth. I want to learn anything we can that will help in the tournament.”
I lucked into a few fish. “One thing a fisherman needs is a good partner,” says Turner with a smile. “So far you don’t have one.
I need to be pulling my weight and catch some fish.”
Presentation-- Our rig was a simple double-rig with a jig/ minnow combo on bottom and a straight minnow above. The jig was
1/4-ounce to get the baits down to the bottom quickly. He says the
jig acts as a weight. About a foot above the jig was a short loop with an Eagle Claw #2 hook on it. The hook and jig each had a live min- now.
The presentation was sim- ple, too. We dropped the jig to the bottom, no matter what depth of water we were in, and raised the jig up enough just to get it off the mud. Most hits early in the morning were on the minnow but by mid to late morning the crappie were hitting both.
“I use Strike King baits with the black-chartreuse working good up here. I like to switch up some to see if I can find what they like best, but I have my favorites that will be on most of the time.” Our poles were B’n’M 11-foot Sam Heaton jigging poles. Turner likes the sensitivity and feel of the Heaton model. We also had Duck Commander poles.
“I like monofilament
line. Today we are using Vicious 10-pound because of the heavy jig and heavy cover. I’ve tried braid but haven’t stuck with it enough to like it. I always have trouble with it. I’ve had success on the mono so prefer to use it.
“We are leaving the bait still most of the time, just swim- ming it around a little to move it. The fish seem to want it still.”
Mid-Morning-- After a few hours,
1000 E. US Highway 69 Emory, TX 75440 (214) 215-2221

I asked what he thought. “We’ve learned a little. We’ve learned the fish are right on the wood any- where from six to ten feet. Some are on the outside trees. We haven’t caught but one tournament fish
but we will keep working. Bigger fish seem to come off the stumps instead of the hedge trees. We’ll keep watching that. We will cover as many trees as we can.
“Weather could play a big part with a front coming in but the locals say it might get better. We’ll see.
“I’ve noticed there are not as many boats as I expected on this end of the lake. I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.”
Noon-- “As of now, I think we will one-pole the tournament. So
we will be trying to find as many big fish as we can for the next few days. We may switch to a drop-shot rig with straight minnows if we see that’s what the crappie want. The main thing is to find better fish. We’ll just have to see if that hap- pens.”
12:45-- Practice day halted tempo- rally because of a broken trolling motor cable. Turner headed to the motel to replace the cable.
He returned to the lake later in the day but the fish he caught were smaller than he would need for the tournament.
Tuesday thru Thursday-- Turn- er took time out on Wednesday afternoon for registration and took part in a media fishing event on Thursday morning. His prefishing remained consistent but the tour- nament sized fish were elusive. He went into the tournament knowing he would need to hit the right spot sometime during the first day to have a shot at a good finish.
Final Note-- The team had a fan- tastic year but the national cham- pionship tournament was a tough one. Paul and Elizabeth finished 95th with 15.35 pounds.
They started the 2019 season with a fourth place at the Early-Bird Carlyle tournament in October. Better look out next year because the championship is on one of the Turner’s home lakes.

Lifetime Achievement Award
“The Lifetime Achievement Award means a person has dedicat- ed his life to the sport of crappie fishing,” says Brian Sowers. “Vic is an example of someone who has excelled and helped bring it from the old days to what tournament fishing is today.
“He has been a leader, a fishing guide and friend to many fishermen. He won a huge tourna- ment on Grenada, his home lake. He was one of the pioneers in the sport.”
Big Fish & Big Stringer of the
Vic Finkley and Kim Ken- nedy took both of these awards during the same tournament. No surprise they were fishing Grenada Lake, Mississippi.
“They all came off the Sku- na side just off Turkey Creek,” says Finkley. “There were some hogs laying there in 6 to 8 feet of wa-
ter and they were ready to spawn.
It was a magic moment. We had
high water and
we found a little slough they were
in. We missed
some really big ones.”
Big fish was 3.15. Biggest one-day, seven fish stringer was 18.29 pounds.
Sportsman of the Year
“This is an important award,” says Mike Vallentine. “It means a person or team has dis- played sportsmanship, did things by the book, represented spon-
sors well and represented crappie fishermen on and off the water. We had several teams who could have received this award, but the Ropers stood out as hard-working, dedicat- ed and great representatives of the sport of crappie
“I was shocked,” says
Jarad Roper. “It
means a lot because someone has definitely seen what you’ve been doing. I’m sure we’ve all felt in life that what we were doing might not be noticed or appreciated, so this award recognizes something that’s very important to me. I love crap- pie fishing and enjoy promoting the sport. It’s awesome to received this with my dad.”
Tommie Roper says the award means a lot to him and his son. “This means a milestone in life. I try to be a person who has an influence in peoples lives because we are all put here to make a differ- ence.”

Adult-Youth Angler Team of the
“It’s our second year in
a row and I’m happy. We go out fishing to have fun and see what
we can do. We’ll do the same thing here at the championship. It’s such a pleasure to take this young man fishing and make memories togeth- er. My dad did that for me and I never had a son, so this young man has come into my life when I start- ed dating his grandmother. It’s been a great experience.”
David Simmons and Jaxon
Male/Female Angler Team of the
Crappie Masters has al- ways been pro-active promoting family fishing. The male-female division is an important part of the organization. The division is also very strong with many male-female teams often in the top ten at tour- naments. This year’s Male-Female Angler of the Year Team is Paul & Elizabeth Turner.
“Fishing together is fun and we have a good time,” says Elizabeth. “We are usually calm but good fishing can get us on fire and excited. I only got to fish five tournaments with him due to my condition, we have a child on the way.”
Paul says, “We didn’t start out the year going for it but we fished the early bird tournament last fall and won. I told my wife if we did good in Florida we’ll have to chase it. We came in second. We had a good year. It’s good to fish
with my wife, too. She is a good fisherman and comes up with better game plans than me.”

Missouri Corn Growers Association Promoting E-10 Ethanol in
by Tim Huffman
Boating Industry
“The Missouri Corn Grow- ers Association has been with the Crappie Masters Tournament trail for six years,” says Bradley Schad, Director of Marketing Develop- ment. “We have a great partner- ship with Crappie Masters. Fish- ermen Kevin Jones and Billy Don Surface have been with us from the beginning. They do a great job on social media and just getting out there to spread the news. They make most of the tournaments and been great advocates for ethanol.”
Schad says, “We continue to promote ethanol in the boating industry. The fuel industry keeps putting out false information about
the ethanol industry, that we are trying to put E-15 in boat motors but that is not true. E-15 is for cars 2000 and newer. We are taking some of their market share so they are doing everything in their power to keep it at E-10 or E-0. Every boat manufacturer approves it for use in their motors. By law, it’s re- quired that E-10 must be available everywhere there is E-15.”
The Missouri Corn Growers Association (MCGA) was estab- lished in 1978. It’s a grassroots organization of farmer-members dedicated to increasing the prof- itability of corn production by
developing and expanding corn markets, collecting and distributing information, building coalitions with organizations and industries, and participating in the governmen- tal process. Of course they work
on key agricultural issues such as increasing the market for ethanol, a clean-burning fuel produced from corn.
The Missouri Corn Growers Association is highly involved in promoting environmental stew- ardship while protecting the pro- ducer’s right to farm profitably. While most corn growers are good stewards, MCGA is working with producers to help them do an even better job of protecting the environ- ment by accelerating the adoption of farming practices that improve water quality while maintaining or improving profitability.
The Missouri Corn Mer- chandising Council was formed
in 1984 after a referendum was passed to establish a one-half cent per bushel corn checkoff. Missouri growers voted in 2008 to increase the checkoff to one cent per bushel, strengthening investments in the development and expansion of corn markets, educating customers and exploring new research opportuni- ties.

National Championship
a Battle of Hand-Held Poles
by Tim Huffman
21-Year Olds Surprise & Energize Crowd
The team of Baylor Mead and Matthew Rogers caught two good stringers of fish to win the National Championship held at Truman Lake, Missouri.
we turned and went a different direction. That was one of the
best things that happened because timing is everything and later in the day we caught the 2.11 by being at the right place at the right time.” They ended with 11.19 pounds giving them the day-one lead.
Mead agrees. “We did stick to our general game plan with just a couple important changes. We caught fish all day long with just
a few rough spots. It seemed like every time the Crappie Masters (camera) boat came around we did something stupid. We kicked a pole off in the water and little stuff that we usually don’t do.
“We typically single pole but we each used two poles. Two were more effective because we could get more baits down into the cover we were fishing. We could fish a spot quicker. We use Outlaw Rods and 8 or 10-pound test Power Pro braid. If we did anything differ- ent than other fishermen, it was to fish a lot more submerged cover others didn’t fish.”
The team left a lot of fish on the first day because they didn’t want to burn spots they needed on day two. It paid off.
Day two had early morning clouds that slowed the bite for most fishermen. Rogers and Mead were catching fish but nothing of qual- ity. They left their favorite spot in search of bigger fish. They had a mediocre stringer of fish when they decided to go back the original spot where they caught small fish during the morning. The move was critical because the big fish were biting
Winning a national cham- pionship is a combination of skill, hard work and a little luck. The September showdown at Truman Lake, Missouri was a prime exam- ple. Skill, not years of experience, was a key factor, along with the hard work the winning team put in to learn the lake. Every fisherman has to have a little luck because a trolling motor can break, a big fish can get off at the top of the water or other bad luck scenarios. The good luck factor is having the good fish you’re after bite at the right place at the right time. Matthew Rogers and Baylor Mead, both 21 years old, had it going their way.
1st Place
Matthew Rogers & Baylor Mead
A field of 150 boats battled for the title of national champi-
on and for the $30,000 first place prize. Weather was beautiful all week with the exception of a couple of mild cold fronts going through. There were no 20 mph winds, scorching heat or brutal cold, although it was chilly most mornings. Awesome conditions for a tournament.
Matthew Rogers and Baylor Mead were fishing the Grand arm. They started off right by varying from their game plan first thing. “We were headed out,” says Rog- ers, “and had one particular spot picked out but at the last minute

Mead and Rogers worked hard. A front and wind changed the bite on day two, but they caught a lot of small fish and seven good ones to hold on to their lead.
better. Then, we end up here, unbe- lievable. We were just hoping for
a plaque (top 40) because we had never won one.”
“We were nervous,” says Rogers. “We never thought we had enough weight to pull it off. The local fish- ermen here are the best. I love their style and how good they fish. To be amongst them is the best feeling in the world.”
The team won $30,000, an additional $2100 for big fish and $2000 for using E-10 ethanol in their boat engine.
2nd Place
Mark & Aaron Engelhart
The Engelhart team set a goal to focus on Truman Lake and win the championship. Their plan almost came true as they were leading the tournament when the last team came to the scales and knocked them to second place.
Mark Engelhart says, “We practiced a lot. We learned there was a really good bite but the big fish just bit at certain times, not
all the time. We found three re-
ally good places where the fish
bit at different times of the day.
We would go to each one at those times. You go at the wrong time and the little fish would bite but not the big ones. That’s what we keyed in on. We had to time our spots just right.”
The team caught 10.10 pounds to place 7th after day one.
giving them the opportunity in the last 90 minutes to reach their goal weight of 10 pounds for a total of 21.19.
The team fished various depths from 3 to 12 feet using jigs made by one of the team members, Rogers. A 1/16-ounce was critical producing more bites than heavier jigs. The team basically fished like all other teams with baits next to the bottom. The areas were similar, big flats with a variety of visible and submerged timber. Rogers gives credit to his guiding to help him understand fish movements and moods. The Garmin Panoptics made the difference in the tourna-
ment allowing them to see under- water structure and fish.
“My partner asked me early in the year if I would like to fish,” says Rogers. “We were fishing
the next day and we worked good together. We’ve made mistakes, weighed six fish instead of seven, but we’re learn-
Mead says, “I just met
Matthew in May and we started by fishing a small Truman Lake series. We kept getting a little

Aaron & Mark Engelhart, a father-son team, made a hard run to finish second place with good fish like these on the second day.
They used BnM and Jenko rods, P-Line and Gamma in 8-pound test, and Bobby Garland 2-inch Junebug color and a Strike King Crappie Thunder. They fished faster than most teams saying the fish would hit within five seconds when they dropped the jig, so they fished fast. They fished 7 to 8 feet of water right on bottom. Mainly stumps because their beds only had small fish on them.
The team didn’t have their bigger fish to bite on day one but they had
a good weight with 10.10 pounds to put them into 7th place.
The Englehart team was one and two-pole fishing in 6 to 8 feet of water. They caught their fish just off bottom using Bobby Gar- land Junebug being the dominate jig. They used a Pro Bilt Jighead. Their Humminbird 360 played a critical part in their success. Like other fishermen, they said being in the right place at the right time was critical.
Aaron says, “The difference was knowing
when the big bite would be. I’ll take second any time in a tourna- ment like this. We wouldn’t have done anything differently. We
had a game plan, stuck to it and it worked.”
Mark says, “We are happy for those young boys who won. It was a thrill of a lifetime. We would have loved to be there as a father-son team but I’m very happy.”
3rd Place (tie)
Frank Haidusek & Austin Mc- Clure
“Prefishing was nice”,
says McClure. “I took off work some to fish. We learned to stay on the fish if we found them. Don’t leave them. You could catch them anywhere but specific areas had big fish. Staying in specific spots worked for us.
“We had a game plan but I caught a nice fish the day before so we changed and chased a fish that was

with Jenko rods and HH reels. They used a 1/16-ounce jighead with a Crappie Monster bait with JB’s Fish Sauce.
Shannon Beckmann (the father) said they caught bigger fish in practice than in the tournament. “What we did learn is to slow down. However, we didn’t go slow enough on day one. We needed to upgrade some of our smaller fish to go with two bigger ones. That hurt us.”
“Today, coming to the lake, I told Kyler we would slow down and fish old-school today. Yester- day we caught 40-50 keepers but today we caught over 100. We went through 11 dozen minnows today and that was with hand-holding two rods each. Going slow and holding the bait still made a big difference. We just went out and fished.”
Kyler uses a Kevin Rogers signature series Jenko 10-foot rod and his dad uses a 10-foot Hyper- sense Jenko. I like a stout rod while dad prefers a softer one. We use 15-pound test braided line. Our big fish came off of a Crappie Monster 2-inch bait, a greenish yellow with flakes, 1/16-ounce head. We went to bigger baits but couldn’t get the good bites we got from a small-
er jig. The 1/16-ounce was much better than a heavier one, probably because it was easier for them to suck it in so there were fewer short strikes. We tipped with minnows and used JB’s Fishing Sauce. JB’s
no longer there. It hurt us in the morning but we made up for it in the afternoon.”
Haidusek says, “The fish were biting best after 10:30 on both days. We fished a fence row keep- ing our jigs near the bottom. I tried to hold mine still and he would jig it a little. I tipped with a minnow and he didn’t.
“What I learned is that we had to stick our jig down there and leave it. We just didn’t have enough weight today but to finish third in the national championship is great.”
A good weight of 20.27 put Haidusek-McClure team in a tie for third place to win $4000.
They fished in 5 to 8 feet of water and caught their fish on Spike-It Jungbug jigs and Top Secret jigs in chartreuse-white. Their poles were HH brand. Other sponsors included Crappieholic, Dietz Family Buffet and Dairy Queen.

is good for spraying into the plastic bait bag so the baits soak in some of the scent. We’ve had good luck doing that.”
“My son and I started fish- ing together this year,” says Shan- non. “It’s unbelievable to be doing something like this with my son.” Kyler says, “I’m very thankful to do what I love and do it with my father. I started fishing really hard last year and made a lot of mis- takes. He wanted me to fish with someone else to see what it’s like. We’ve had a hell of a year togeth- er.”
Third place and second big fish of the tournament at 2.03. Indeed a good time.

5th Place & Top Male-Female Team
Jackie & Holly Linton
Jackie and Holly Linton are known as the “Green Machine.” The bright green colors enhance shirts, equipment and boat making it impossible for them to hide, but creating a fun, exciting theme they enjoy and take full-speed into the social media world. But the team is a lot more than a flashy boat and a social media presence.
Unlike others, this team only fished a half-day during prac- tice week. There were two reasons. First, they didn’t want to pressure the fish. Two, their boat is easy to
spot so they didn’t want to show people where they would be fish- ing. Their spot was in the Osage arm.
“I’ve been on these fish for a month,” says Jackie. “I knew the fish would move a little with the weather changing but I knew they wouldn’t move far. We went there on tournament day and the first place we fished, they were there.”
The team had a unique spot that included a tree on a ledge. The depth on one side of the tree is 4 feet and it’s12 on the other. They fished the tree from one side to
the other, learned the depth of the fish and then applied that depth to other spots they fished. They ended up catching most of their fish in
4 feet of water but they did catch some deeper. They dropped to the bottom, reeling the pole tip down

The Green Machine team of Jackie and Holly Linton fished the Osage arm to catch their fifth place stringers of good crappie.
to the water and then raising it up. The fish were just off bottom no matter what depth of water.
Holly says, “We used a 3-inch Slab Slay’R, black-char- treuse Lights Out color. I tried some other colors because some- times the bigger fish hit something different, but none did as well
as Lights Out. We lost a couple
of hours fishing on the first day because we had a big fish dying and knew we couldn’t replace it so we went to weigh-in early. The bite for us was slow for us on day two. It was funny because other teams had good success tipping with minnows but they wouldn’t work
at all for us. Also, totally opposite was that our bite was best when it was cloudy and the sun would slow them down. Go figure? We don’t have an answer why that happened.
“We used Ozark Rods, mid- seat, 10-foot. We used Bobby Gar- land baits, Sufix 20-pound braid with GoreTex. The GoreTex keeps water from being absorbed by the line so there is less water at the reel and it doesn’t freeze in the winter.”
The Green Machine use
a Phoenix boat, Mercury motor, Minn Kota, Humminbird 360. “The 360 was the key,” says Jackie. “Several times this happened, but at the end today we needed one
more good fish. We went across a tree line and I seen a fish. I called the fish and said it was a good one. We dropped down and caught it. The 360 made the difference.”
Does the team have pa- tience? “We fished two trees for four and a half hours, probably seven hours for both days,” says Jackie. “We would drop the bait and not move it again until we got a bite. It was the slowest we ever fished.”
What did the finish mean to the team? Holly says, “It’s reward- ing to have a good finish and win the male-female division. It’s a lot of fun but also a lot of work and

Travis Mace and Kevin Pitts had a good tournament but said a bad decision on day two cost them some weight.
very satisfying.”
Jackie says, “One of the
things when we started was that many fishermen thought we had
a pretty boat and was just here
to do Facebook and Instagram.
So it was music to my ears today when Brian Sowers said “The new leaders” when we weighed in. But we would have had fun even if we had finished last and would be right here smiling. Fishing is fun.”
6th Place
Kevin Pitts & Travis Mace
The team spent the whole week practicing. Even though it’s their home lake, they say things change a lot in a week. The team found their fish on Thursday the day before the tournament. They fished the Grand arm.
“Fish were biting every- where but catching big ones was tricky,” says Pitts. “We were fish- ing a ledge with a bunch of hard- wood stumps on it. It drops from about 2 to 6 feet with the fish right on the 4-foot mark on the break.
That’s where we caught all of our better fish on day one.
“We were disappointed today because we waited too long to move. But really, we weren’t disappointed with our final weight especially with the bad start we had this morning. We had 7.5 pounds
at 11:30 today. We made a move further up the lake and caught two good ones and lost a good one.”
Mace says, “We use Huck- abee Pro Series 10’7” rods. We use Power Pro 15-pound braid and we use 1/8-ounce Timmy Tom weed-

less jigheads. Kevin fished pur- ple-chartreuse and I fished MoGlo Screamer, similar to Bluegrass, with a blue head and chartreuse tail. Our best depth was 4 to 4.5 feet. Sponsors include Crappi- etown, Timmy Tom Jigs, Everharts and Huckabee rods.”
Would you have changed anything? Mace says, “We would have moved earlier today.
Adult-Youth Champions Larry & Dalton Gorham
Adult-Youth National Champions are Larry and Dalton Gorham who won a Minn Kota Fortrex (good because they bent the shaft on their trolling motor when they hit a stump during the tournament), a $100 Everhart’s Outdoor Store gift card, and a $3,000 scholarship to be used for furthering education in college or a trade school.
Larry says the team stuck with the same spots on day two and fished the same jigs. He said Dalton used the exact same jig and plastic all day long, probably catching 40
fish on it.
Dalton says, “We usually
fish one pole each but used a pole in each hand during the tourna- ment. Using two poles is difficult but it works.”
“Our trolling motor hit a stump,” says Larry. “It bent the shaft so I had to run it all the time in the wind today and there was so much torque due to the bent shaft it was very difficult to operate. We were in whitecaps part of the day today. My calves are killing me tonight.
Dalton is 15 years old. He says, “We were fishing on bottom in about 6 feet of water. About half the fish had mud on their bellies. We fished with Muddy Water baits on a 1/4-ounce head. Anytime we fished trees about 10 feet apart, we would fish between them because there was usually a bed there some- one had placed. We didn’t do as well as expected on day one. If we would have had a half-pound more I would have been happy. But we only lost one good fish in two days, so that was good.”
“We use 10-foot Ozark
poles and 15-pound Spiderwire. Dalton hated the braid at first but likes it now. He is a good partner and fisherman. He is all over the boat but he catches fish so that’s okay.”
Dalton says, “We’ve been working a lot and it has paid off. It’s great to fish with my dad.”
