You know when you turn the TV on on a random afternoon and ESPN shows guys in flat boats, low to the water whispering in hushed, animated tones as they try to reel in a fish on some in some dazzlingly picturesque place? This is that place. Home to the 2014 Bassmaster Classic event, Lake Guntersville is as good as bass fishing gets in America, and equally iconic. If you don’t believe us, take it from Field and Stream: “Lake Guntersville is to bass fishing what Augusta National is to golf: steeped in Old South tradition, picturesque, and uniquely challenging, yet rewarding.” That about says it all.
