CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The team of Chuck James and Brad James posted a two day total catch of 10 bass weighing 41.75 pounds to take the win in the 2013 Tow Boat U.S. Chattanooga Bass Association Classic Championship on Lake Chickamauga. 

"We fished frogs in the grass both days of the tournament and everything we weighed in seemed to bite in the middle of the day" said Chuck.

Day One Big Fish Winners:
Tom Brindle and Brian Wilson with a 5.87 lb. largemouth
Billy Campbell with a .87 lb. spotted bass
Baron Adams and Brian Pierce with a 2.87 lb. smallmouth

Day Two Big Fish Winners:
Rogie Brown and Michael Neal with a 6.40 lb. largemouth
Stan Dickert and Gene Cote with a 3.51 lb. spotted bass
There was no smallmouth caught.

This event was held at Chester Frost Park where 61 teams battled for the prestigious honor of CBA Classic Champions and $10,000.00 first place money.  The total payout of this year's two-day event totaled $53,000.00.

The fishermen faced a cold front with blue bird skies which made fishing very difficult for many teams in this 36th year old event.

Towboat U.S. owners, Shane and Stacy O'Neal, sponsored this year's event. 

Shane says "For over 46 years, BoatUS has been delivering time, money and life saving services to recreational boaters from coast to coast. We fight for your rights on Capitol Hill, we have the finest low cost boat insurance, the largest fleet of tow boats ready to assist you 24/7 when the unexpected happens on the water, and an award-winning magazine that reports information you won't find in other boating publications.
