SWOSU Bass Fishing Bulldogs Gearing Up for Season

Southwestern Oklahoma State University student members of the Tournament Bass Fishing Club are gearing up for the 2017 spring season.

Team members will participate in tourneys as well as host fishing scrambles—open to everyone.

Chris Bradley of Prue is president of SWOT (SWOSU outdoor teams). He is among 15 tournament bass fishing bulldogs on the Weatherford campus. Last year the teams represented SWOSU in collegiate bass fishing tournaments in Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Alabama. The next tourney for SWOSU is Lake Sam Rayburn in southeast Texas.

The club is sponsored on the water by SWOSU adjunct faculty Rocky Powell and on campus by Dean of Students Cindy Dougherty.

Coming up this spring on Thursdays, SWOT sponsors team and individual fishing scrambles at SWOSU’s Crowder Lake. The entry fee is $30.  For three tournaments each month, the winner gets 75% of the entry fee monies and at one surprise tournament each month the prize is 100%.  All other proceeds support the club.
