Welcome to the site of the Eastern Buckeye Crappie Club. My name is Tim Rickey, the founder of this club and I also do the leg work for the tournaments. I started the EBCC with the hope of bringing together the Crappie anglers of the eastern Ohio area as well as our neighboring area. We as anglers must stick together no matter what species we fish for. I myself fish for saugeyes as well as Crappie. But when wanting to do some crappie fishing as a group there are only a few places where to go. That is the one reason for starting this club. There are numerous bass clubs and some walleyes clubs, heck there are even catfish and carp clubs around but not for the crappie enthusisist
One thing I would like to see is more of us sharing the techniques and styles of fishing we engage in to catch our favorite panfish. There are lots of folks who catch crappie in the spring then sit at home the rest of the year or out fishing for other species. The crappie can be caught anytime of year and you need to learn or help others learn the techniques it takes to catch slabs year-round. Besides that, if you are not fishing for crappie in the fall or winter you don't know what you are missing.
With that said I will close. I hope you visit the rest of the pages and come join us at some of our events. Thank you for your interest.
