According to the Grenada Tourism Commission, the first of the three crappie tournaments will be hosted at Grenada Lake March 10-11.
The following week on March 18, a big crappie tournament hosted by the Magnolia Crappie Club.
On March 23-24, Grenada Lake will be the site for the Crappie Masters’ Mississippi State Championship.
Steve Robinson, 11-year veteran of the Grenada Tourism Commission, said tourism in Grenada is starting to get the ball rolling in 2017.
“Tourism is on the move,” Robinson said. “Right now, this is our down time of the winter, so we’ve sponsored fishing tournaments from the fall into the spring.”
