UPCOMING EVENT: PHOENIX BASS FISHING LEAGUE - 2020 - Lake Mitchell

FLW College Fishing Southeastern Conference Event Set For Lake Guntersville

FLW College Fishing Southeastern Conference Event Set For Lake Guntersville
FLW News Release

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. – FLW College Fishing is headed to Lake Guntersville May 2 for the second of three regular-season stops in the Southeastern Conference. A full field of college teams will be competing for a top award of $2,000 and a berth in the Southeastern Conference Championship tournament.


 


“It’s going to be an exciting event for these collegiate anglers,” said Quaker State pro Scott Canterbury, of Springville, Alabama. “Competitors are going to be able to catch bass just about any way they want.


 


“This time of year the fish will be in all three stages of the spawn. Most of them will be spawning or in the postspawn phase moving to deeper water, but anglers are still going to be able to catch them wherever it’s comfortable.


 


“Topwater baits like a Heddon Zara Spook or a Yum Money Minnow swimbait are going to produce big bites,” continued Canterbury. “It’s a big fish lake and swimbaits are the big fish bait to catch them on. There’s also going to be opportunities to catch them on Strike King medium-diving crankbaits and bigger jigs offshore as well. Anything shad-colored is going to clean up.”   


 


Canterbury went on to say that activating a school of fish off of the banks could be the key to victory for top anglers.


 


“That’s where the some of the biggest fish will be sitting before heading out into the lake,” said Canterbury.


 


Considering winning weights, the Alabama angler predicted a five-bass limit in the 27 to 30 pound range will take the tournament. 


 


“It’s going to be an excellent day of fishing,” said Canterbury. “These are the type of lake conditions anglers wait for.”


 


Anglers will take off from the Civitan Park ramp located at 1130 Sunset Drive in Guntersville at 6:30 a.m. CDT Saturday. Weigh-in will be held at the marina beginning at 2:30 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.
