TBF National Championship Tournament
Written By: TN Bass Federation



Co-Angler Wesley Taylor of Decherd, Tenn. was one of the anglers representing the Tennessee Bass Federation at the 2012 Federation National Championship held on Bull Shoals Lake. After the 2nd day of competition, Wesley was leading the Co-Anglers with a total weight of 24 lbs 15 ozs. His efforts where rewarded and Wesley took home a $1,000.00 check from the Cabela's Angler Cash program. Leading the Co-Anglers going into the 3rd Day of competition, Wesley didn't fare as well as he hoped for. Falling water levels had an impact on his third day weight. He managed to catch 2 keepers weighing 3 lbs 14 ozs. This gave Wesley a 3 day weight total of 28 lbs 13 ozs which was good enough to hold onto 3rd place. Wesley took home over $1,700 in winnings for his efforts. In addition, Wesley won the Co-Angler Southern Division title earning a spot to compete in the 2012 BFL All-American Tournament. Congrats go out to Wesley Taylor for a job well done!
