Fishing University visited Natchitoches in October 2019, where fishing legends Charlie Ingram and Ray Brazier competed in a friendly competition on Sibley Lake and Cane River Lake while being filmed.

During their visit, they also hosted a program at Lakeview High School where the local fishing teams including Natchitoches Central High School, Lakeview High School, Northwestern State University and a host of other students participated.

In addition to the two celebrities, three local gentlemen talked about the importance of education and how it landed them successful careers in the outdoors.  Those participating from our area were Johnny Ledet, Owner of T’Johnny’s Seafood and competitive angler, and Brett Hortman, Director of the Natchitoches National Fish Hatchery.
