  • Kansas Crappie Club Tournament raises money for Fishing's Future
Recap of the June 24..Kansas Crappie Club Tournament at Hillsdale Lake.We caught a hundred fish, but no size.  Hillsdale is sometimes called Dinksdale, but the Top Secret Jig winning team of Marc Shepard and Brandon Manus proved there are some good fish in there. Big fish weighed 1.89 pounds and they recorded 7 fish weighing 8.98 pounds. Second place was a mere 2 ounces behind at  8.78.

Brian Underwood, director of the Lakewood Discovery Center will join us on the show to discuss the Smoky Hills Outdoors Youth Festival

Lakewood Discovery Center is a feature of Salina Parks & Recreation Department, our mission goal is to provide opportunities for the community to explore and learn about our environment through self- discovery and hands-on activities.  Lakewood provides Salina with its own urban wildlife sanctuary and nature center to help reach our goals.  The wildlife sanctuary consists of a multitude of habitats that allow Kansas wildlife feel at home so close to the city.  The learning opportunities that abound while walking the nature trails are endless, along with their relaxing effects on people that encounter them.

The Discovery Center is a teaching tool in a sense that we provide many of the outdoor aspects that we have in the park in an indoor setting.  Lakewood provides visitors an opportunity to get up close to some of our more private residences that are in the park.  Through these encounters, we hope that the visitor’s awareness and knowledge of our native wildlife will increase.  As our community grows, we also want to grow with them, and continue to provide a great place to observe, and learn about their environment.  No matter the age of the visitor, the environment is not ours, merely ours to take care of and pass along to future overseers of the land.

{gallery}2018 Yeager/Jenkins Catfish Tournament{/gallery}

What a great year for the fishing tournament. This year we had 15 teams (over 60 people fishing) and 13 of the weighed fish. The first night was a little rough for everyone but they pulled through night number 2. We weighed 1846.6 pounds of fish over the weekend. It's honestly hard to believe how far this tournament has come since we started. From six teams and about 45 people at the weigh-in to what we had this year is amazing. We hope to get even bigger next year. Thank you to the Hartford High football team for serving a great breakfast. A huge thank you to all those who fished so hard this weekend and everyone who attended the weigh-ins. Without you, all none of this would be possible. Thank you, everyone, see you all next year. 

Results each team's biggest 5 fish of the weekend:

1st Archery Assassin-204.6 with big fish of 55 pounds

2nd Team Conley- 161.2
