The Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana purchased fishing rods for all of their members participating with a $2,000 grant from the Opelousas Elk's Lodge #1048. Each Boys & Girls Club member were paired with an Elk member to help them fish.
The members used live bait to make their catch. All Club members received a certificate for their participation and the opportunity to keep the fishing pole. The fish caught were cleaned and bagged to bring them home for dinner.
Trophies were given for categories such as the Biggest Catch, 3 Biggest Fish, Good Sportsmanship, Most Spirited Award and the Trash Fish Award.
