Where to Play Fishing
Lake Guntersville, Alabama's largest lake contains 69,100 acres and has 949 miles of scenic shoreline and is the host to several fishing tournaments throughout the year such as ESPN BASS, Bassmaster and FLW tournaments.
Though most noted nationally for large bass, Lake Guntersville is home to quality angling for a variety of fish. Historically, about two-thirds of the anglers on Guntersville target largemouth bass, although bream, crappie and catfish attract their fair share of anglers. Southern Sporting Journal labels Lake Guntersville as one of the six best largemouth bass lake to fish in the winter.
Lake Maps can be purchased through the Lake Guntersville Chamber of Commerce at (256) 582-3612 and at most tackles shops. For more information on fishing Lake Guntersville or to purchase a license online please visit:
