2017 Brother Martin Fishing Rodeo

IMG_0623Threatening weather could not deny a successful 2017 Brother Martin Fishing Rodeo.  Over 40 teams entered and competed for awards in 15 categories including new additions Bass, Snapper, Largest Fish (Not a Gar), Father/Daughter Biggest Fish and Biggest Gar.  The Class of ’73 Culinary Squad provided delicious food, sno-balls and other treats.  CCA Louisiana provided rods and reels for young fishermen.  Kids competed in a fish toss then teamed up with parents in a balloon tossing contest.  Team McCrossen set a tournament record in the Largest 2 Redfish 27” and Under category weighing in at 17.35 lbs.  For the second consecutive year, Anthony Congemi ’19 won the Largest Fish Caught By a Current Brother Martin Student category. Rob Hymel kept the crowd entertained with music and Eddie Gonzales ’77 served as emcee. The “Big Board Raffle” and Parade of Prizes featured hotel stays, restaurant gift certificates and other fascinating items.  Members of the Alumni & Development Office along with a team of volunteers ensured a successful event. Prior to the Fishing Rodeo, participants gathered at Sports Beat for the Captain’s Party for 2017 Brother Martin Fishing Rodeo.  Teams registered and enjoyed complimentary food as they shared fishing stories and prepared for the rodeo.
