What are the crappie busters?

Crappie Busters is a organization for crappie anglers who tournament fish. It was started in 1991, and is run by Mike and Mary Hawkins, the Boat House Pro Staff. The Crappie Busters schedule usually has a line up of from eight to ten tournaments at various Eastern Kansas Lakes such as Perry, Clinton, Melvern, Council Grove, and Pomona, as well as some others. Anglers from as far away as a couple of hundred miles take part in the tournament each year. In 1999, Crappie busters became an affiliate of the ACA, and the Crappie Busters of Topeka, Kansas was formed. It initially had 14 members, but by 2000, it had grown to 28, and still continues to grow each year. Crappie Busters’ goal is to allow Kansas Crappie Anglers to take part in all types of crappie fishing. The Crappie Busters Tournaments are not just for Crappie Busters Members. Anyone can take part, but membership is encouraged and beneficial to anglers. It offers members the advantage of being able to fish various lakes in the Eastern part of Kansas so they can compete with other fishermen from Kansas and surrounding areas. They promote fellowship among crappie anglers and share all types of fishing tactics and tips.
