Lakeview senior signs with NSU Fishing Team


NATCHITOCHES – Kain Custis, a senior at Lakeview High School, signed to become a member of Northwestern State University’s competitive bass fishing team this fall. Custis earned a scholarship to attend NSU and plans to pursue a degree in business administration while competing with teammates.

The NSU Fishing Team has about 14 members, according to Team Sponsor Juddy Hamous, and is open to all NSU students.  The club sport taps into the popularity of organized competitive bass fishing and competes in FLW, B.A.S.S. and Collegiate Bass circuits. The NSU team appeals to anglers because of the attractive waterways in the area, including Toledo Bend, Red River, Cane River and Black Lake.

NSU fishing team scholarships are made possible and funded by the Dylan Kyle Poche Memorial Scholarship fund. The Poche family of Natchitoches annually sponsors the Dylan Kyle Poche Memorial Bass Fishing Tournament on Toledo Bend, set this year for March 27. Funds raised from the tournament go towards the scholarship and support of the NSU Fishing Team.
