Lake Guntersville Set To Host YETI FLW College Fishing Event presented by Berkley

Lake Guntersville Set To Host YETI FLW College Fishing Event presented by Berkley

GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. – YETI FLW College Fishing will continue the season with an event March 3 on Lake Guntersville presented by Berkley. The tournament, hosted by the Marshall County Convention and Visitors Bureau, is the second of three regular-season events for anglers in the Southeastern Conference, and will feature a top prize of a $2,000 club scholarship and an invitation to compete in the 2019 College Fishing National Championship.

“The lake is fishing as good as I’ve seen it in the past two years,” said FLW Tour pro Alex Davis of Albertville, Alabama, who has 15 top-10 finishes on Lake Guntersville in FLW Competition, including four wins. “I think that the weather has had a lot to do with that. The water temperature is around 54 to 55 degrees – normally this time of year it’s around 48. The earlier warm up has pushed the fish up shallow and they are up to do some eating.”

Despite the warmer temperatures, Davis said that he expects the bass to still be in their prespawn patterns.

“The key will be finding the right size of fish,” he said. “The lake is full of 3-pounders – they’re everywhere. The key will be to find the 5-pounders. I think Rat-L-Traps, ChatterBaits and flipping boat docks will all be strong patterns. I don’t believe that this tournament will be won out deep.

“I think that the winning team is going to need at least 25 pounds in this event,” Davis went on to say. “I’m going to predict that the winners will bring 26 pounds to the scale.”

Competitors will take off from Guntersville State Park, located at 7699 Alabama Highway 227 in Guntersville, at 7 a.m. CST Saturday. Weigh-in will be held at the State Park beginning at 3 p.m. Takeoff and weigh-in are free and open to the public.

Schools are allowed to register up until the morning of the tournament. Entries may be made either by phone or at CollegeFishing.com.
