Cullman native Jordan Lee won the Bassmaster Classic World Fishing Tournament Sunday in Houston, Texas.
The 25-year-old sat in 15th place heading into Sunday’s final day. Lee caught five fish weighing in a combined 27.4 pounds to take over first place.
Overall, he caught 12 fish weighing 56.10 pounds.
“I’m at a loss of words. You dream about stuff like this happening, but for me to have the day that I did, I’m speechless,” Lee said during his on-stage interview at the Bassmaster weigh-in.
Lee will take home a $300,000 cash prize.
