CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - The team of Jamie Copenhaver and Adam Dysart caught a 5 bass limit weighing 35.52 pounds topping out the field of 106 anglers to win first place and $2,000.00 in the Hunter Oil Chattanooga Bass Association Tournament. This bass event was held June 9th 2018 out of Chester Frost Boat Ramp.

Jamie said “We started the morning in some grass beds after a few stops we caught a 7 pounder and that got our attention. We moved deep and would find a school but we would only catch one before they spooked and left. We just kept picking them off one at a time. Seems like every move we made was the right one. Going to be one of those days you remember for a long time’.

Big fish of this event was caught by Adam Dysart super nice large mouth weighing 8.47 pounds. Second big bass of the day was caught by Justin Medley weighing 8.37 pounds.
