I've been fishing a lot of bass tournaments in michigan this year. The fishing have been pretty good and there have been some big fish caught. I'd say the average 5 fish limit that wins the tournaments is around 14-15lb. I was just wondering if any of you fish tournament and what the average bass 5 fish winning weight is? I realize it greatly differs from lake to lake, but i'm just looking for an average. I have hunted tennessee my whole life, but have only fished for trout there. I was just wondering what kind of bass TN lakes produce compared to michigan.

I've been fishing a tournament series this year. On one of TN's lakes in southern middle Tn. We fish one tournament a month from Feb. to Sept., it has been taking at least 16 lbs./ 5 fish to win each tournament. Up until last month all smallmouth has been winning.

I was gonna say, it seems like you need at least 18-20 lbs just to cash in any tourneys around Pickwick and Ky Lake areas here.

I guess it really matters what lake you're fishing. If I was fishing the detroit river or lake st.clair, the winning poundage would be around 20. Seems like you guess have some pretty good sized bass down there!

On Chickamauga around 22-23 lbs is winning. In April, one tournament the winning weight was 31.95. I think it was a new lake record, not 100% sure though.
