Jerry Wright of Waterloo, Ala. and Brandon Staggs of Summertown, Tenn. won the Alabama Bass Trail’s inaugural event on Lake Guntersville with 5 bass weighing 32.02 pounds. The duo won $10,000 for besting a full field of 200 boats and 400 team anglers on a cold morning in North Alabama.
Wright and Staggs used lipless crankbaits, spinnerbaits and swim baits to catch their fish. After recovering from some trolling motor issues, they were able to catch 3 more big fish to seal the deal.
