By Bassmaster Marshal Lee Means I was number 77 on the waiting list to be a Bassmaster Marshal for the Diet Mtn Dew Bassmaster Elite at Lake Guntersville. The Big G has become my new home lake since moving from Chattanooga, Tenn., to Madison, Ala., two years ago. Four short years ago I began fishing from the banks of the Nickajack and Chickamauga. I bought my first boat only a year ago and have become obsessed with the sport of bass fishing.
After helping Skeet Reese to a victory in the Diet Mountain Dew Bassmaster Elite at Lake Guntersville, Byron Velvick wasn’t the least bit bitter about coming in second. He said he knows the favor will be repaid a thousand times over. Reese agreed with that notion, adding one disclaimer. “I’m not giving him my check,” said a grinning Reese after winning the $100,000 first-place prize. “But that kind of thing always comes back to a guy down the road.”
