On Day 1 of tournament competition, Dylan & Carter Nutt weighed in a five bass limit for 27.80 pounds, including the big bass of the day weighing in at 7.87 pounds. On Day 2 of tournament competition, with winds, rain and storms battering the region due to a storm that popped up mid-morning in the Florence, Alabama area, the twin brothers steadily put together a strong limit that weighed in at 24.56 pounds. That five bass limit on Day 2 also included the Overall Big Bass of the tournament, tipping the scales at 8.20 pounds. For the tournament victory, the anglers earned $5,000, as well as several contingency awards to include $1,000 ACA logo contingency, $500 T-H Marine Atlas Awards, a Power-Pole for Overall Big Bass, and 2,500 points towards the Bass Pro Shops School of the Year presented by Abu Garcia.

Finishing the event in 2nd, with 43.74 pounds, are Lucas Bowers & Fisher Rodgers from the University of South Carolina. The two anglers were in 10th place after Day 1. On the final day of tournament competition, they weighed in 24.62 pounds to climb 8 places. For their 2nd place finish, Bowers & Rodgers earned $2,500.

Rounding out the Top 3 are Nathan Reynolds & Banks Shaw, with a two-day total weight of 42.72 pounds. They also represented the 3rd ranked University of North Alabama. Reynolds & Shaw were in 13th place after Day 1 with 18.61 pounds, but that thanks to a five fish limit weighing in 24.11 pounds on Day 2, the duo was able to climb into 3rd overall in the final tournament standings. Reynolds & Shaw won $1,500, as well as claimed the $2,000 top prize for being the highest-finishing Yamaha Power Pay eligible team.

On Day 2 of tournament competition, anglers again found a great deal of success out on Wilson and Pickwick Lakes. Added cloud cover and steady rain presented conditions that allowed anglers to find bites in a multitude of ways. From shallow to deep, and everywhere in between, this elite field of 400 anglers caught plenty of quality fish out on these two Tennessee River fisheries.
