About the Organizer

Hello, I’m Tyler and am the Organizer for the Kentucky Crappie Trail. I’ve had a passion for fishing and the outdoors all my life. I grew up hunting with my father and friends and through that I gained a deep appreciation for nature and wildlife. As I got older, my interest in fishing grew stronger and I now get out on the water as often as possible. I realized that tournament fishing was what brought me the most joy and excitement being a competitor, so I dedicated myself to fishing as many tournaments as possible over the next couple years. Eventually, I realized that Crappie fishing was what I loved the most, and created the Kentucky Crappie Trail to fill an underserved niche in the fishing community here in Kentucky. I have a beautiful wife, an incredible daughter, who share my love of the water as well. We get out on the lake as a family as often as possible, connecting with each other and the great outdoors. I’m proud to be able to direct the Kentucky Crappie Trail along side my awesome lake directors and hope you’ll join us for a tournament during season two!

Why Crappie Fishing?

Crappie fishing is one of the most popular types of fishing among anglers in the United States due to the plentiful supply of fish in lakes throughout the country. However, without the right skills, it can still be very difficult to catch a sufficient amount of fish. Our crappie fishing trail is designed for the best Crappie fishermen in Kentucky or surrounding areas. We give them a place to compete, grow their skills and continue to improve the sport of Crappie fishing nationwide.

A Community of Fishermen

Our community of anglers are more than just competitors, they are friends, family and neighbors. 

Building Connection Through a Love of Fishing

We not only compete, we create true community through a shared loved of crappie fishing, boating and nature.

Competition that Excites

The competition at Kentucky Crappie Trail allows our anglers to showcase their skill and reach for the next level.
