BRETT PREUETT UPDATE: We usually reserve Sunday’s for just a scripture verse, but we are going to continue our daily updates on Monroe’s Brett Preuett. Brett’s a fine Christian young man and his plans, as you can see below, fit right in with the message above. Preuett qualified as the college champion while a member of the ULM fishing team in 2014. He only caught one fish each day and missed the cut for Sunday’s BASSMaster Classic final, but hey, he also caught a fish each day of the BASSMaster Classic and got to fish in the BASSMaster Classic which is more than most that wet a line can say. In fact, one of the best pictures out of the Classic was him, his girlfriend and his dad praying on the boat dock minutes before he left for Day 1 of the Classic. We wish him well as he pursues professional fishing.
Here’s his exclusive lakedarbonnelife.com report from today:
“Fishing the BASSMasters Classic was one of the greatest weeks of my life. I experienced how great and amazing this sport is. I never realized how much kids and adults alike look up to you and want to be like you because of it. The guys fishing the tournament were great and offered advice that will help me in my fishing career. I believe it is in God’s plan for me to help me spread his message through fishing to little kids and adults alike. This has been such a great experience, I will never forget. I have so much motivation to make it back again!”
NOTE: Brett was one of three Louisiana anglers in the Classic. None made the final day cut. Angler of the Year Greg Hackney of Gonzales finished in the dreaded 26th spot after Saturday — only the top 25 lived to fish Sunday in the finals. Cliff Crochett of Pierre Part finished 46th.
