Guntersville Lake is a world renowned largemouth bass fishery. It is also home to the 2020 Bassmaster Classic where records will be broken. Guntersville is the perfect bass factory due to its shallow dynamic features, abundance of aquatic vegetation and current generated by the TVA.


Weiss Lake is known as the crappie capitol of the world. However it also possesses one of the worlds best trophy spotted bass and largemouth bass populations. It routinely takes over 20 lbs. for 5 fish to win tournaments and like Guntersville is a shallow lake with an abundance of natural cover.


Neely Henry Lake is the most unique fishery in north Alabama. It is a true river system to the north but the south end is wide open and fishes like a big lake. It is full of big largemouth and spotted bass and you can catch them with a variety of different techniques on any given day. I grew up walking distance from its shore and fishing there daily. 


Logan Martin Lake is known as the lake of a 1000 coves. It is a world famous spotted bass fishery with an excellent fish population. In the spring and fall catching 30 or more quality bass a day is to be expected. This is where I have perfected my unique crankbait fishing technique that I can teach you.
