CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The Southern 175 Series held the first event of its six tournament season Sunday, March 3, 2013 out of Chester Frost Park on Chickamauga Lake.
The team of Greg Lamb and Jeff Richmond caught a five-bass limit weighing 24.46 lbs. to win first place and $520 in the March Southern 175 Series bass tournament.
"We caught our fish on spinner baits and swim baits fishing staging areas through out the day," said Lamb.
The duo of Chris Coffey and Nick Pratt took over-all big-fish honors with a giant largemouth bass weighing 8.38 pounds which earned them $300.
The Southern 175 series will end its season with a Classic in September in which the winners will receive a brand new Tracker bass boat from Island Cove Marine.
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."
Only boat owners with 175 hp. engines and below on their boat are eligible to fish the Southern 175 Series bass tournaments.
