    Default Red Rock Tournament

    Has anyone heard any information regarding the annual crappie tournament on Red Rock?

    I spoke to the gentleman that runs it about a month or 6 weeks ago and he told me May 25th tentatively but I've not seen or heard anything that would confirm that.

    I spoke to the gentleman that runs the tournament, it will not be held this year unfortunately. Anybody know of any other tournaments?

    That is unfortunate. This is the one crappie tournament we really have to look forward to in Iowa. Growing up in Missouri there was always tons of crappie tournaments, and I've been disappointed by the lack of crappie tournaments since I moved up here 6 years ago. What does it take to get a tournament series going up here? Iowans do not realize how great of crappie fishing they have up here. When it comes to consistently catching big crappie, I would put Red Rock above Truman or Lake of the Ozarks. That is really saying something, considering I grew up fishing tournaments on Truman and Lake of the Ozarks my entire life.

    I am at a point where I am willing to work with some people to get a series going. I know there was a group "Southern Iowa Crappie Club", I think that did something at some point. I am looking for feedback, and lessons learned. I know there are several hundred views on this thread, so please start replying and get engaged!

    Thanks!

    This is very unfortunate. I’ve been looking forward to this tournament all winter. I agree with showtime fishin we need more crappie tournaments in Iowa. We have three great reservoirs with great crappie fishing and no support for any tournaments. I’m definitely on board and will support a series.

    At this point, I am thinking long term. Would it be nice to replace the one that usually happens in May? Absolutely, but I don't think we have enough time to get something properly set up. I am wanting to start a series that has at least two to three tournaments a year. We just need interest, engagement, and participation. Iowa has the lakes to have a great crappie series, we just need the people.

    Same for me. I grew up in Missouri fishing tournaments as well. The one on Red Rock was all we had up here! There was some talk of those guys getting the Southern Iowa Crappie Club going again but it never did. There seems to be plenty of guys interested in fishing a few tournaments. I'll fish everyone I can and will help get this going however I can. Red Rock, Saylorville, Rathbun would all be good lakes for a series. Let's figure out how to make this happen and get it going. Glad to see the interest from folks!
