CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The team of Rick Camp and Jamie Hatcher marched through the field to catch a 2 day limit of 10 bass weighing 33.87 pounds topping out the field of 114 anglers to win first place and $10,000.00 in the 2017 Tow Boat U.S. CBA Bass Classic. This two day bass classic tournament was held Saturday, October 21st and 22nd out of Chester Frost Boat Ramp.

Rick and Jamie, after day one, were in 35th place with 5 bass weighing 9 pounds. On day two they weighed a five bass limit weighing 24.87 which included a super giant large mouth weighing 11.13 pounds. Jamie said “after a small limit on day one we decided to stay away from the grass and fish top water areas that included docks, rip rap, blown down trees and just about anything we could find to cast our top water baits. On our first stop of the morning we caught a nice smallmouth weighing over 31/2 pounds and continued to catch good fish each time we moved.”
