TAMUK Anglers announce activites for the semester

by -

The reel has been cast: The Anglers, ready for the Spring semester, met last Tuesday to outfit themselves for this year’s future outings.
Officers introduced themselves and the newly elected officials.
They talked about their experiences with the Anglers to new members, said Secretary Will Castillo.
“One of the things we did was broadcast last year’s big fishing trip. We showed members catching sharks, redfish, and other types of fish,” Castillo said.
Many events are being planned for the semester, including fishing trip, fundraising, and conservation events.
February 4th is going to be the first fishing trip, and on February 29th, there will be a Big Shell Beach Clean Up.
“The big end of the year fishing trip will be sometime in May, so lots of fundraising will need to be done in order to make it free to everyone going,” said Michelle Gutierrez, Vice President of the Anglers.
“It benefits students who decide to jump into the program, especially Agriculture majors, because it gets them experience and connections with game wardens,” Castillo said.
Fifty-four members attended the meeting, which was a great turnout, Castillo said.
“Of course, this doesn’t mean you can’t join anymore. We’re always happy to take new members. Right now, we’re at 450 members…and growing,” Castillo said.
