Millsap students cast line for fishing club

By LIBBY CLUETT | lcluett@mineralwellsindex.com

MILLSAP – Millsap ISD students might soon be fishing – for fish – if an after-school club gets the green light.

Accompanied by Millsap High School student Landon Blanks, Principal Kayce Haenisch presented to the MISD school board Monday on the topic. She relayed how Blanks came to her to start a competitive fishing club. After doing some homework and discussing the possibilities with the head of an established team at Kaufman High School, Haenisch explained how this might become a reality.

She contacted the Student Angler Federation, part of the Bass Federation, and said there needs to be a minimum of six students in the club to be a member of this organization.

After discussing insurance, fees, tournaments in Texas, boat and equipment requirements and an educational component, trustees sounded positive about the idea.
