FLW College Fishing heads to Lake Guntersville

Despite the intense fishing pressure, Lake Guntersville always produces quality bass as Rayovac FLW Series anglers will prove today.

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (May 7, 2014) - FLW College Fishing is headed to Lake Guntersville May 17 for the third and final regular-season stop in the Southeastern Conference. Fifty college teams will be competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth in the Southeastern Conference Invitational tournament. "Guntersville is fishing great right now, and by the time this tournament starts it should be even better," said Straight Talk Wireless pro Scott Canterbury of Springville, Ala., who has three top-ten finishes on Lake Guntersville in FLW competition. "Anglers are going to be able to fish to their strengths and catch them any way they want to." Canterbury suggested that most of the large schools of bass will have moved to the ledges, but tournament anglers would still be able to put together a solid limit of bass if they prefer to fish shallow. "There will definitely be some fish still shallow," Canterbury said. "Find the greenest grass you can. The bass are biting topwater baits pretty good right now. A Heddon Zara Spook, swimbait or a swimjig will all catch fish. "But, if they're comfortable fishing deep, that's where I think the tournament will be won," Canterbury continued. "Be looking at your electronics and graphs and a team will definitely find some big schools out deep on the ledges. These anglers will be throwing crankbaits, football jigs and big swimbaits. "The potential for a huge stringer is always there on Lake Guntersville," Canterbury went on to say. "You can catch in the lower- to mid-20 pounds fishing shallow, but I think a team that is fishing deep will bring 25 to 28 pounds in to win the event." Anglers will take off from Civitan Park located at 1130 Sunset Drive in Guntersville, Ala., at 6:30 a.m. Saturday. Weigh-in will be held at the park beginning at 2:30 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
