Members of the Texas A&M University-Texarkana Eagles Fishing Club reeled in nice catches Saturday at their last tournament of the season, competing against 85 teams from Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma at the Fishing League Worldwide College Fishing Southern Conference event on the Red River in Natchitoches, Louisiana.

Jared Hunter and Michael Moore placed 15th overall in their first-ever fishing tournament as new freshmen at A&M-Texarkana. Justin Snow and Josh Cole placed 21st overall.

The FLW College Fishing Southern Conference event was the third and final regular-season qualifying tournament. The next event for Southern Conference anglers and the A&M-Texarkana qualifiers is the Southern Conference Championship, scheduled for Oct. 17-18 on Grand Lake in Grove, Oklahoma.

FLW College Fishing teams compete in qualifying tournaments in one of five conferences – Central, Northern, Southern, Southeastern and Western. The top teams from each regular-season tournament will qualify for one of five Conference Championship tournaments. The top 10 teams from each of the five Conference Championship tournaments will advance to the 2016 FLW College Fishing National Championship with a chance to take on the best bass fishing professionals in 2017 at the Forrest Wood Cup to compete for $500,000.
