PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

The Bass Pro Shops Crappie Masters state tournament comes back for the 5th year. Boaters will launch at the Gold Star Park in Wetumpka and crappie fish for 30 miles downstream. 

The tournament is a two-day event with anglers expected from all over the southeast. The fishermen will compete for thousands of dollars in prizes, and a chance to qualify for the national tournament later this year. It's gotten to the point now Mayor Al Kelley can't imagine springtime without the tournament. 

"People ask me all the time 'when is the crappie tournament coming back?' so we show them a good time and good hospitality," said Kelley. 

The weigh-ins will be at the Mills Creek Sports complex. The tournament rules state that anglers are allowed to weigh in a total of 14 fish, seven per day. The fish are typically released back into the water after the weigh-ins. 

Mayor Kelley says so far 70 boaters have signed up for the tournament which begins Friday, March 22.
