Ferris students enjoy fishing

Bryce Canada

BIG RAPIDS — Bryce Canada has been among the active members of the Ferris fishing club keeping an eye on the action this summer.

He’s a native of Flushing, and has been a member of the club two years. He’s in Ann Arbor for the summer with an internship. He’ll be back in the fall. He’s studying welding engineering.

“I mainly fish up (in Big Rapids) in the spring for club tournaments,” he said. “I’m doing some summer tournaments, too.”

Canada likes competing against other fishing clubs.

“When we were on a high school team, we used to do stuff like that,” he said. “It’s pretty cool to see how it works. I’ll hopefully fish tournaments after we graduate.”

Canada said his teammates are also good anglers and they’re all friends.

“It’s a very competitive tour,” Canada said. “There’s a lot of guys with the big fancy boats. Everybody is as competitive as they possibly can be. Knowing the lake helps, Prefishing and practicing helps. Anything can affect how the fishing is, to be honest with you.”

He also pointed to the existence of the Ferris Ice Fishing Circuit, which covers Mecosta County, during the winter.
