Where there’s grass, there’s bass. Where there’s logs, there’s hogs. Lake Guntersville aka “The Big G” is a massive lake in Northeast Alabama that is home to one thing - huge largemouth bass! It’s no coincidence that professional anglers from all over the country, and fishing TV shows such as Major League Fishing routinely visit the Big G. Grass of all species, stumps, current and ledges make fishing Guntersville a fisherman’s dream!
