CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The Southern 175 Series held their yearend Classic Championship this Sunday, September 23, 2012, out of Chester Frost Park on Chickamauga Lake.

The team of Greg Lamb and Jeff Richmond caught a five-bass limit weighing 22.37 pounds to win first place and a fully rigged Tracker Pro Team TXW 175 boat. The boat provided by Island Cove Outdoor Center has a retail value of $16,000.

The duo also took over-all big-fish honors with a giant largemouth bass weighing 8.84 pounds which earned them $500. They also received the highest finishing Tow Boat U.S. member award which netted them an extra $500.

Lamb said "Fishing conditions were real tough today, we caught the big fish early in the morning and then really struggled until later on  in the day. We were able to get a couple of quality fish about an hour before we had to be back in."

Only boat owners that have 175 hp. engines and below on their boat are eligible to fish the Southern 175 Series.

Tournament organizer Tim Thornbury says, "This tournament trail was designed to level the playing field for angler's who do not have the bigger horse power boats which are common place in today's bass tournaments."
