One of the most searched for posts on this blog is the Bill Harkins Bass Fishing Tournament held each year on Crab Orchard Lake near Marion, IL.  In an effort to enlighten the reader I have tried to find out some information about it.  The only thing I know at this point is that there will be a pre-tournament meeting (mandatory) on Friday evening April 20, 2012.  I do not know where it will be but if a reader has that information please feel free to comment.

The tournament will be the following two days April 21 and 22, 2012 on Crab Orchard Lake with take-0ff at 6:00 a.m.  The weigh-in each day is usually about 2:30 p.m. but is usually decided at the friday evening meeting.

This is a 4-man tournament with proceeds going the the Shrine Clubs.  If you are interested, you might try the Williamson County Tourism Bureau at 1-800-GEESE-99 or the Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge at 1-618-997-3344.
