What a 4 day stretch. I fished on Guntersville Thursday and Friday pre-fishing and 2 day Divisional Championship with ABA WBS Alabama North Division Saturday and Sunday. Guntersville was fishing tough for most people but of course it is Guntersville and someone is still going to catch them.
32 Hours of fishing
10 hours of driving
50+ bass caught 12 or so were keeper size (15+”)

Day 1:
I was sitting in 2nd place in the Co-angler field out of 60 total with 9.09lbs 3 fish limit. The leading Co-angler has 11lbs and 3rd place Co-Angler had 8.9lbs. My boater had 4 fish for 10lbs on Day 1. Both of us missed a few on a buzzbait and Frog along scattered shoreline grass that would of given us a little more weight.

Day 2:
We caught plenty of fish but just the wrong size. I caught nearly 40 fish and my boater caught about a dozen but most were short fish. I caught 6 keepers and my 3 biggest weighed 6.27lbs. My boater zeroed.

Total:
15.36lbs 2 day total with 3 fish limit each day.

I finished 5th place with a $350 Check smile
Top 3 got a trophy. Oh well. I had a blast. Fished very clean both days.

Finished 8th in points in my first season as a Co-anger with American Bass Anglers, Weekend Bass Series Alabama North Division. 3 of my 6 boaters this season zeroed and I still caught fish behind them. I weighed 16 fish with a maximum possible being 18. Overall a very successful season. Next up is ABA AFT D125 season opener on Allatoona at Gatewood Ramp Sept 13th then I officially qualified to fish Chickamauga for ABA WBS Southern Regional Sept 26-27th. First place for both the boater and Co-angler is a brand new Triton bass boat!!
Never been to Chickamauga before so I am all ears if anyone has any pointers for there.
Thanks for your time,
Frank smile


Top 3 baits used:
Spro poppin frog
Zoom Ol' Minster worm

Good Job, Frank! I think you are doing alright on your own (don't need a college team)!

Thanks friends. And yes but I get a chance to do some of these college fishing tournaments where most of them have no entry fee besides being a member of the specific association. College Fishing for me is mainly a marketing decision for me but also enjoy some competition near my age group as well.

Congrats Lillypad.
I zeroed Sat, not a bite and had 3 fish on Sunday and put only 1 in the boat.
My boater on Sat had 1 bite and 1 fish.
Sunday's boater had a limit and culled 2 fish.
We ran from state part to within a 1/2 mile from Roseberry.
I was glad as I have fished this area before.
All fish caught Sunday was on plastic in 2-6' of water.
At weigh in on Sunday, my Sat boater came up to me with a 20 pound sack with 4 fish and his co angler has 3 over 15#. FROM the SAME place we fished Sat.
Man, that was awesome for them.
Story of my life,Should of been there today.

Thanks Coach. And keep your head up, Guntersville was fishing tough for many people.
What was the boater on the first day catching them with? Jig, Magnum Spoon, big worm, frog?
