Behind the Bass: Building a Classic - 2014 Geico Bassmaster Classic
Guntersville rolls out red carpet for the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by Diet Mountain Dew and GoPro.
Survey says: Elites agree the lipless crankbait will be a popular choice at the 44th Classic.
At the Guntersville Walmart I ran into the Kennedy family gathering supplies for the week. Wife Julia said that Steve's favorite tournament ritual is a big country breakfast -- fried eggs, bacon or sausage, grits. Then she thought that might send the wrong message. "Can you write 'granola and fruit?'" She asked, even though there was none in her cart. Rest assured Steve will be well-fed.
The fuses could be lit Friday for the biggest show in Classic history.
The Tackle Trap in Boaz is worth the trip. They have a substantial selection of Megabass gear and local Guntersville favorites. I met a gentleman who owns Hammer Rods from Mississippi. He recommends a boat full of 7'11" medium heavy cranking rods.
I stopped in at the Tackle Trap in Boaz, Alabama and met Ty Cox. He predicted Jordan Lee will win with a Rayburn Red lipless crank, winning weight of 85-08. His mother prefers Brandon Palaniuk and predicts he'll have 83 pounds.
