Pipkens with a Chickamauga giant

Chad Pipkens, with about an hour left in his fishing day and one fish in the boat, pulled up on a place he hadnt fished all week, made one cast and hooked this Chickamauga Lake giant!

Pipkens, arguably one of the most positive anglers Ive been around, has kept telling me that were going to be fine. With one bass in the boat for most of the day, the Elite Series veteran kept sending positive vibes throughout the boat and it worked. 

It took a couple of minutes to land this giant on the spinning tackle and this definitely served as a game changer for Pipkens.
