Top Rod Big Bass Classic just one week away
More than 140 anglers expected to fish the fundraiser on Feb. 26 at Lake Fausse Pointe
"The tournament unique to this region, which also benefits the University of Louisiana ... at Lafayette Ragin' Cajun Bass Fishing Team, gets underway at 7 a.m. that Sunday. Participants can leave any time but cannot begin fishing until 7 a.m."
"The first $1,000 Elvis Jeanminette Memorial Scholarship was divided and awarded to Daniel Ortego of Ville Platte and Alex Lamade of Baton Rouge, who were ULL freshmen on the bass fishing team at the time of the event Feb. 28, 2016. Their submitted essays were judged a tie."
Hope this year's tournament is as successful as last year's and another $1000 Scholarship is presented to a Cajun fishing team member(s)!
