(Oct 7, 2015 - COLUMBIA, S.C.)  Johnson played a key role in the 2015 Crappie Masters tournament series including the Championship tournament that just concluded on Kentucky Lake.
As previously reported, the Johnson Crappie team duo of Billy and Scott Williams captured the Crappie Masters Angler Team of the Year by a single point. Earlier in the season, Jeff Riddle and Dave Maddox captured the Beaver Lake title. Both teams credited their success to Johnson Shad Scales and Tubes.

Their 2.78-pound crappie was the biggest fish of the championship.
Three of the top five spots at the event on Kentucky Lake were awarded Johnson $250 incentive checks for highest finish using Shad Scales.
