When B.A.S.S. released the 2015 Elite Series schedule I immediately took notice of the Lake Guntersville event. I've lived in Guntersville, AL for the past five years and have spent considerable time on the lake, so I was ecstatic to have an opportunity to fish an Elite Series event on a body of water I know so well.
I knew coming into this event I'd have to be conscious of not fishing history—trying to catch fish in places I did in years past around the same time period. Fishing history rarely works out because the conditions are never exactly the same from year to year, week to week, or even day to day. For example, a cold winter can prolong the spawn and a mild winter can speed it up.
