For the second year, the Renewable Fuels Association has been co-title sponsor, with Bass Pro Shops, of the Crappie Masters Tournament Trail, with the 2018 National Championship held this week in Clinton, Missouri on Truman Lake. The corn growers were actually for first to get on board to sponsor the series of fishing tournaments held in several states.
During the sponsor, youth and media tournaments on Thursday morning, RFA Vice President of Industry Relations Robert White and Missouri Corn Director of Market Development Bradley Schad got on the water to see who gets the bragging rights this year. The winner was White, but he gives Schad all the credit for seeing the potential this family fishing event provides for ethanol education. Listen to an interview with both here –
