Despite the fact that much of the country is experiencing one of the coldest winters on record, another tournament season is upon us. That will become reality in the minds of most anglers this Friday, when 55 of the best anglers in the world idle out of City Harbor, in Guntersville, Alabama for Day 1 of the 2014 Bassmaster Classic.

classic-logo-3dGUNTERSVILLE, Ala. — What’s in store for the 55 anglers competing in the Bassmaster Classic this weekend on Guntersville Lake?

It would be easy to say no one knows, but that likely would be inaccurate. History tells us that February, especially the middle to late part of the month, is one of the best times to be on the famed Tennessee River impoundment in north Alabama.

A couple of average keepers caught in 1997 out of San Vicente Lake in San Diego County probably doesn’t sound significant to you, but to Kevin Hawk, they stand out vividly amid a career of bass catches and tournament weigh-ins. The fish were significant to Hawk because they were the first ones he caught drop shotting, something that has formed a cornerstone in his fishing and dominated in his career-changing win at the 2010 Forrest Wood Cup on Lake Lanier.

Decisiveness tempered with prudence is every bit as important to fishermen as sharp hooks and smooth drags. Brett Hite brought plenty of both to the FLW Tour event on Lake Okeechobee the first week of February and walked away with a dominating victory.

While many worked the shoreline, Hite stayed out in the 3- to 4 ½-foot range and caught fish over submerged hydrilla. After opening his wire-to-wire campaign with a monstrous day-one limit of 34 pounds, 15 ounces – his personal best and 2nd largest single day catch in FLW history – Hite topped the field with a 4-day total of 88-14 and a winning margin of 6-6.

In response to my recent column on Bassmaster.com about the outsized role that spectators will play in this year’s Bassmaster Classic, I received a thoughtful email from a Mr. David Chandler, who lives on the Big G and wants to watch some of the pros attack his home lake with fame and moderate fortune on the line. In a classic case of a few rotten apples spoiling the barrel, I’ve always assumed that most spectators are there for negative or nefarious purposes – to steal GPS waypoints, booger things up for the pros or riff on some variation of “Those guys don’t know what the hell they’re doing out there.”
