FITCHBURG -- Monty Tech's Fish and Game Club did well during a two-day fishing trip to Lake Ontario.

Under the direction of club advisers Ken Baer, Tim Wright and Kevin Killay, the group only had to travel a mile from shore to start catching fish.

"Using baits and lures to troll, the kids were able to catch some great fish. King salmon was the big catch with some weighing as much as 26 pounds," said Baer.

Club members returned home with over 100 pounds of fresh salmon fillets.

The club held fundraisers during the last school year to defray costs of the trip.

"We want to thank all those who helped sponsor this amazing trip by contributing to our fundraising efforts," Baer said.

Started three years ago, the fish and game club is very popular with students, and membership is growing.
