Crappie pro to speak, kick off exhibit Sept. 21

Whether you call them “crappie,” “white perch,” or “sac-a-lait,” there’s no question north Louisiana lakes are full of them. Next week, an event at the Union Museum of History and Art will help you learn to catch this great fish. 

The Farmerville museum will host a special crappie fishing seminar at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 21, and open its new exhibit, “Hook, Line, and Sinker.” The event will feature well-known crappie fisherman and publisher of the “Crappie Now” and “Catfish Now” magazines, Dan Dannenmueller of Wetumpka, Alabama.  Dan will be joined by his wife and “Crappie Mate,” Sue. The event will be held at the Union Museum at 211 N. Main Street in Farmerville.

Dan will share some of his best crappie catching tips for Lake D’arbonne with a special emphasis on basics for young and beginning crappie anglers. As a special treat for young anglers under 16, several door prizes and crappie fishing goodies will be given away.

Fishing experts consistently rate Lake D’arbonne as one of the top five crappie fishing destinations in America.

This museum is hoping for great attendance for this opportunity for young fishermen to learn valuable information and to meet one of the legends of crappie fishing. 

The museum’s exhibit featuring fishing equipment and photos will be open through October 29. “Hook, Line, and Sinker” is sponsored by The Hopper Agency, Cooter’s Bait and Tackle, and K & M Coffee, Corks, and Camo.
