Team Hilton wins again at Temple Bar on Lake Mead

The father and son team of Dave Hilton II and Dave Hilton III made it two-in-a-row by winning the Kingman Bass Club's monthly bass tournament on Lake Mead.

The tournament was held out of Temple Bar, and the Hiltons bested eight other teams with a solid bag of five bass that weighed 11.09 pounds.

Second place was won by Greg Parker and Norm Montgomery, who had a five-fish limit that weighed 9.38 pounds.

Third place was taken by Roger Miller and Mike Miller, who had a limit that weighed 9.16 pounds.

To show just how close the competition was among competitors, Shane Moline and Tina Kennedy had a limit that weighed 8.88 pounds, while Art Fuller and Pete Byers had a limit that weighed 8.87 pounds.

Also in the tournament were Ryan Chan and John Howell who had a limit that weighed 8.86 pounds.

Teams were met with high winds and huge swells on the largest man-made lake in North America for their one-day tournament.

Though the weather was less than ideal for bass fishing, only one team in the field failed to bring a five-fish limit to the scales.

For the Hiltons, this is the second straight tournament they have won on Lake Mead. They won the club's May tournament at a Colorado River lake which was held out of South Cove.

The club will take off for the summer, and will resume fishing again in September with a tournament scheduled at Park Moabi on the Colorado River.
