WHITNEY POINT (WBNG) -- Thousands came out to either participate in or watch the "Almost Annual Crappie Derby" at Whitney Point Lake in 2011.
It was held in January that year, as the conditions were just right.
In 2018, the derby is scheduled for February 17, weather permitting.
Organizers will make a final decision the Monday before the derby. Find updates at crappiederby.com.
