Yet Another $1,000 Tagged Fish Caught; $10,000 Fish “In-Play” This Saturday and Sunday

Yet another angler has a legitimate reason to brag to his friends this week, after reeling in a $1,000 fish Wednesday morning, as part of the 2019 Weis Lake Improvement Association’s Crappie Rodeo on Weiss Lake.  Josh Morrow of Ft Payne was fishing from the bank around a dock in the Little River area – when he pulled in the big money fish.  That makes the fifth $1,000 tagged crappie caught in a week’s time.

Amos Wallbrown of Greenfield, Indiana caught one Sunday in Little River – with J.D. Norton from Granite Falls, North Carolina incredibly reeling in one last Wednesday, and another on the following morning when he was shooting docks in the Little River area.

The first $1,000 tagged fish was caught by Cedar Bluff resident Virgil Beatenbo – as he was shooting docks in the Yellow Creek area.

This year’s tournament features 1,006 tagged crappie – with a combined value in excess of $162,000 – including large numbers of $50 fish, 52 $1,000 tagged fish, and several $10,000 sponsored fish that are “in-play” on select dates and a $10,000 fish “in-play” throughout the tournament, sponsored by the Weiss Lake Improvement Association.

A $10,000 fish – sponsored by the Town of Leesburg – will be “up for grabs” this weekend – Saturday and Sunday, March 30th and 31st.

The tournament continues through April 15th.
