Fishing club members catch winning prize
Two members of Louisiana Tech’s Bass Fishing Club have reeled in some serious cash.
Sophomore agriculture business major Peyton Igo and sophomore construction engineering major Matthew Loetscher placed first at the National Guard Forrest L. Wood College Fishing Southern Conference event at Sam Rayburn Reservoir in Lufkin, Texas.
The duo caught five bass that weighed in at 15 pounds, 8 ounces. Igo and Loetscher won $5,000 and said the money will go back into the club account.
