Johnny Ledet and Justin Cooper, members of Northwestern State University’s fishing team, will participate in the FLW College Fishing National Championship hosted by the Mountain Lakes Convention and Visitors Bureau on Lake Keowee in Seneca, South Carolina, March 17-19. The two qualified to participate in the championship by earning a berth in conference tournaments.
