DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) -- For the first time since 2010, Crappie USA held a fishing tournament on Lake Decatur.

And the anglers were reeling them in!

The winning boat today was from the Amateur Division bringing in 7.66 pounds and the biggest fish of the tournament weighed in at 1.58 pounds.

One organizer told me they hope to repeat the tournament over the next two years.
