More than 100 recreational fishermen participated in the free event in the hopes of catching the biggest catfish in the pond.

There’s a chance history can be made this weekend for Lincoln Parish prep football.
And the opportunity has only occurred two other times in the 21st century.
Since 2000, only twice have Ruston High, Cedar Creek and Lincoln Preparatory School (known as Grambling Lab prior to 2016) all three won first-round games in the Louisiana High School Athletics Association football playoffs in the same season.

That could change Friday night with all three teams playing second round postseason contests.
