GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. — Last night definitely was not how the 55 anglers inthis weekend’s Bassmaster Classic on Guntersville Lake wanted to spend their evening — watching weather reports about severe thunderstorms, rain and a cold front dropping temperatures by 20 or more degrees.
What started out earlier this week as high hopes for a sunny, even warm Classic on the famed Tennessee River impoundment now becomes a series of questions. Will the weather affect the fish? Will they still bite as well as expected? Will the barometric pressure changes mess up things too badly? How about the wind that gusted up to 40 mph or more over the lake?
