Red River Waterway Commission and the Natchitoches Convention & Visitors Bureau will host the Mr. Crappie $75,000 Invitational Qualifier April 22-23, 2022 on the Red River Pools 3 and 4. The Mr. Crappie Invitational qualifier allows crappie teams from all over the USA to come and compete for an opportunity to fish in the world’s richest crappie tournament — the Mr.Crappie $300,000 Invitational on Table Rock Lake Oct. 20-22, 2022 in Branson, Mo.

Over the past three years, the Mr. Crappie Invitational has raised the bar for all crappie tournament anglers across the country. Who would have ever thought crappie anglers could win $100,000. But, the Invitational Qualifier allows crappie tournament anglers to punch their tickets to the Big Show in October. The Red River is an amazing fishery that has lots of crappie. Have a look at the results of the 2021 Mr.Crappie $250,000 Dollar Invitational on the Red River Pools 4 and 5.

“I am excited that our Commissioners have committed to bring the Mr. Crappie franchise back to the Red River,” Marketing Director for the Red River Waterway Commission Eric Gilmore said. “The 2021 Crappie Expo in Shreveport was a historic event and to be able to bring this event and these anglers to another part of the Red River is great for our community. The economic impact of these events is tremendous for our community. The Red River Waterway Commission has sponsored the biggest events in the fishing world, and the Mr. Crappie Qualifier continues the Commission’s commitment to the economic and recreational development of the Red River District.”

Mr. Crappie $75,000  Invitational Qualifier weigh-ins will be held at the Grand Ecore Recreational Area and at the historic Cane River Amphitheater on Front Street in beautiful downtown Natchitoches, La. Crappie fanatics get ready for a week full of fun fishing the Red River and all the good food and good times Natchitoches has to offer.
