While the odds are heavily stacked in Caleb Kuphall’s favor today, if anyone can catch him, Lake Guntersville is the place to do it. We’ve seen it here before, and not that long ago. It was on June 24, 2019, that Jamie Hartman came from 10th place - 7 pounds, 2 ounces, back of first place - to win at Lake Guntersville.
Hartman’s 5-bass limit the final day weighed 23-15. That’s half of the equation for an epic comeback today: Guntersville is quite capable of producing a monster bag. Leader Caleb Kuphall demonstrated that this week with his 27-10 limit on Day 1. The other half of the equation is that Guntersville can fish equally as tough. Lots of "here one day, gone the next" scenarios have taken place during tournaments on this lake, which can be just as fickle as it is good for a bass angler.
