Fishermen Reel ‘Em in at the 2018 Fishing Rodeo!

IMG_8779Brother Martin High School held its annual Fishing Rodeo on Saturday, June 2, 2018. It was a beautiful day for the gathering of alumni, families, and friends of Brother Martin as participants competed for various titles in 15 categories.

The Captain’s Party held at Sportsbeat Pub & Cafe in Metairie kicked off the annual Rodeo earlier in the week. Fishermen and guests were able to register while they enjoyed complimentary food, beverages, and fishing tips. Participants were also able to pick up their complementary ditty bags and t-shirts from Director of Alumni Scott Corrente ’83 and Brother Martin staff.

Following the Captain’s Party, participants launched their boats in the Louisiana waterways to catch some fish! During the rodeo, Rob Hymel and Jay Hotard ’82 entertained the crowd with music as Eddie Gonzales ’77 served as the emcee.  There were also games for the smallest of fishermen such as a parent-child balloon toss and fish tosses. The Class of ’73 Culinary Squad provided a delicious cuisine of fried fish, hush puppies, sno-balls, and more. Team McCrossen, a four-time winner, took home the trophy for the Largest Two Redfish 27′ & under. This was a new record for the team for they also had 13 spots on their redfish!

Adding to the event, the Brother Martin Cheerleaders walked around selling tickets for a 50/50 raffle of over $500, a “Big Board Raffle,” and a Parade of Prizes consisting of restaurant gift cards, Brother Martin metal art, a Brother Martin pirogue, and much more. The Brother Martin Fishing Club, along with club moderators Glen Fallon and David Jouandot ’03also attended the rodeo. Brother Martin staff, Scott Corrente ‘83 and Director of Development Kenny Spellman ’84, along with a team of volunteers ensured a successful event.
