CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – Twenty-nine teams showed up to fish the second annual Crappie for Canines Benefit Tournament on Sunday April, 13th at Chester Frost Park on Chickamauga Lake.

Blue bird skies and windy conditions greeted anglers today, but the smiles on everyone's faces including the dogs were very bright.

Winners of this years event were Brian Howard and Sport Dill. Their 5 fish tournament limit weighted 5.40 lbs.
