We are less than a month away from official practice for the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic on Lake Guntersville, and I’m pretty excited about it.
There’s probably no tournament in recent memory that will tell us as much about the importance, or lack thereof, of local knowledge as this year’s GEICO Bassmaster Classic.
For winning the sixth annual Bassmaster Classic, Rick Clunn of Montgomery, Texas, earned $25,000, half of the $50,000 total payout, for his catch of 59 pounds, 15 ounces. The Classic was held Nov. 3-5, 1976, at Lake Guntersville, Ala.
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.
One interesting thing about the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic is that there won’t be one main pattern that dominates.
It only makes sense that bass fishing's greatest championship comes to one of the sport's best fisheries.
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.
Chris Lane’s dream of winning the 2014 GEICO Bassmaster Classic is different than the dreams of the other 55 anglers in the game.
The Geico Bassmaster Classic will be here in just a few short weeks, and this one is going to be special.
As we kick off 2014, I'd like to first wish everyone a Happy New Year. I always enjoy this time of year while I finish putting the hunting gear away and begin prepping for the upcoming fishing season.
