David Kilgore, who at 6′ 9″ looks better suited to basketball than bass fishing, went wire-to-wire to win the Southern Open #2.

At 6-feet, 9-inches, Jasper, Alabama’s David Kilgore appears better suited to basketball than bass fishing.

His victory at the Bass Pro Shops Bassmaster Southern Open presented by Allstate was an impressive slam-dunk.

Kilgore lead the tournament from start to finish. His three-day tally of 54-pounds, 11 ounces of chunky largemouth and spotted bass earned him $6,741 and a Nitro Z9 powered by a Mercury 225 Pro XS. Even more important is an invitation to compete in the 2015 Bassmaster Classic.
