2015 Shrewsbury Crappie Tournament

Third Annual, Crappie Tournament

Saturday May 2nd, was the perfect spring morning for the third annual Shrewsbury Crappie tournament. With 95 registered adults and children seeking be best spots among the many cuts and streams, the little hamlet became a fisherman's paradise.
The tournament began at 8 am, but eager anglers were begging bait to catch crappie at 6:30 as the sun lifted over a glass smooth Rondeau Bay.

Volunteers like Annette Lucio and Larry Legue, kept everyone well fed with burgers and dogs.
