Jenkins and Norris Win Big in Gen2.7.3. Series 2016 Island Cove Bass Classic

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) – The team of Matt Jenkins and Steve Norris weighed in a two day total of 42.28 pounds of bass to take the win in the Gen2.7.3. Series Bass Classic held this weekend out of Chester Frost Park August 6th and 7th.

Jenkins and Norris received a brand new Tracker Grizzly Sportsman boat package from Island Cove Outdoor Center for their winning efforts.

Jenkins said, “Our pattern was pretty simple. Everything we weighed came on jigs in grass. The afternoon bite was key. On Day 1 we didn't put a fish in the boat until 12:30.”

Finishing in second place was the veteran team of Derek and Chase McCullough with a two day total of 40.04 pounds.

Derek said, “Both days we started of fishing grass edges and later in the day moved into deeper water fishing brush piles. All fish were caught on jigs and crankbaits.”

Jake Debin, Tournament Director, said “special thanks from all the fishermen to Island Cove Marine and all the other sponsors that made this years' tournament trail a great success”.
