Lionel and Taylor Hughes Are Tennessee State Champions

Lionel Hughes and Taylor Hughes won the Tennessee State Championship that was held on Kentucky Lake on May 2 & 3rd, 2014. Sponsored by Bass Pro Shops, Tracker Marine, Humminbird, Minn Kota, Mercury Motors, MidSouth Tackle, Benton County-Camden Chamber of Commerce, Northwest Tennessee Tourism and the Town of Big Sandy, the team weighed in a two-day weight of 20.61lbs. to take the victory.

Prior to the tournament pre-fishing was great then heavy rain came into the area. Waters got muddier overnight after day one competition and fishing got more difficult for many teams. The Hughes Bonding Company sponsored team stayed with their game plan of one-pole fishing over homemade stake beds. The team fished the beds repeatedly as fish would repopulate some beds. They fished in 8 to 9 foot waters catching fish 7 feet deep using Grizzly Elite poles and Teezur orange-chartreuse jigs. They fished out of a F & F boat with an Evinrude motor using Humminbird electronics and a Minn Kota trolling motor. Their efforts earned them $4800 for first place.
