Tommy Hill & Bubba Frazier have struggled the past couple of weekends when it comes to catching quality tournament fish, but the pattern changed in their favor Sunday.

Not only did they bring in the big stringer of the Sweet Sixteen Sunday Series tournament with five fish weighing 26.24 pounds, but they also took over the lead for the Monster Mount with Tommy's impressive 9.37 pound pre-spawn female.

Their total take home, including two Pride Rods and two V&M Lure Packs, was $2,211.

Second place was a nice solid limit by Jody Norsworthy and John Scott weighing 22.88 good for $1,038.

Third place, winning $876, was Paul Batman and John Scarborough with 21.04.

The consistent team of Shelby Shaw and Lance Hughes locked down the fourth place position with 20.73 sending them away with $730.

Finishing out the top five was the team of Jeffery Burdette and Dustin John with 20.68 winning $584.
