| March 14, 2017
The inaugural American Trail Tournament held at Grenada Lake in Mississippi took place this past weekend (March 10-11) with the winning team of Ron Bilbrey and Tom Hankins taking home a new Ranger RT188c boat as the 1st place prize. This first time tournament attracted 63 teams. Terry Stewart and Cole Stewart took second place winning $6,450. Ronnie Capps and Steve Coleman finished in 3rd place winning $4,400.

Adverse weather conditions for the tournament held down normal weights that it takes to win on Grenada. On day one only 3 limits (7 fish, minimum 12 inches) were caught. On day 2 with severe cold front conditions, only 1 limit was caught and weighed in.
The American Crappie Trail (ACT) is owned by Angie Morgan with her husband, Matt the organizer and director of operations. Much of the ACT tournament format is designed to follow poplar major bass tournament formats. Video and camera crews will be placed in boats for spectators to follow the action. Weigh-in process has been streamlined to decrease mortality of the fish and a live release boat is being used to transport the fish to various parts of the lake for release after the tournament. Conservation and live release are some of the objectives of the new tournament trail. ACT will have a pay back of 100% and the winner of each tournament will win a Ranger RT188c boat.
The next ACT tournament will be held on Lake D'arbonne on March 31 – April 1. Registration deadline is March 17th with lake off limits March 17-26. Official practice days will be March 27-30. Daily weigh-in ceremonies will be held at D'arbonne Point, 1470 Old Hwy 15, Farmerville, LA
