With the final qualifying spots for the Southeast Conference Regional Championship on the line the Dickson County High School duo of Dylan Dunnagan and Shader Brown brought in an impressive 5 bass limit that weighed in at 18lbs 7oz to win the 2014 Tennessee Open.
“We used a black and blue jig with a chartreuse strands to catch most of our fish today” stated Brown. “We used the 5 XD to get the school of fish turned on and then came back to pick up the stragglers with the jig” added Brown who is a senior this year at Dickson County High School. “We really need to thank our school for starting a High School Fishing Team” commented Dunnagan. “This program has given us a great opportunity to enjoy the sport we love and represent our school.”
