OK, the first three days of practice for the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GoPro are in the bag. Practice was an interesting experience.
This place is ready to go. I’m telling you there isn’t any part of Guntersville, Ala., that isn’t into the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GoPro. It’s the talk of the town, regardless of where you go or what you’re doing.
This year’s GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GoPro should be one of the most interesting in recent memory, and we have Mother Nature to thank for that.
Check out this photo of the Classic take-off ramp covered in snow this morning. Hopefully, it won’t look like that on February 24. I had enough cold and snow at last year’s Classic in Oklahoma to last me for a while.
Back in December I wrote a column about bass fishing being better than ever. I stand by that thought, but I have to say that from what I’m seeing down here in Florida the pressure is beginning to show on Lake Tohopekaliga.
Last week I said there was more to Lake Guntersville than grass. I stand by that statement. At the same time, though, there’s no doubt that grass is important to this body of water.
This week I’m going to write about the physical side of Lake Guntersville. I hope some of what I have to say will help you if you’re lucky enough to come here and fish. Or, maybe it’ll help you follow and understand the 2014 Geico Bassmaster Classic a little better.
In a few hours 2013 will be history and 2014 will be underway. I’ve always tried to be positive in my outlook on life. Now is as good a time as any to write about what I mean when I say that.
This week I want to talk about Christmas in America, what it’s all about and why I love this country as much as I do.
I’ll tell you what — the bass fishing around the country is better than ever.
