Young anglers from all over the state converged on Chattanooga’s Chickamauga Lake over the weekend for the The Tennessee Bass Federation/Fishing League Worldwide (TBF/FLW) State Championship. It was a great weekend for the young fishermen of the Campbell County Middle School Fishing Team and the championship title is coming back to Campbell County.

Gabe St. John and Mason Dople are now back to back champions in the event. The dynamic fishing duo picked up the win and title with five fish that weighed 11lbs 15oz.

They were not the only local youth that did well. Mac Fritts and Reid Chapman got 2nd with four fish that weighed 6lbs 14oz. Anthony Malone and Ayden Malone got 5th place with a pair of fis that weighted 3lbs 14oz.
