Sometimes it’s the “small” things that really get you excited about what you love to do. Sometimes it’s grabbing your favorite energy drink or coffee on the way to the lake that gets you amped on life.
Sometimes it’s turning up the volume on some Led Zepplin and singing “Ramble On” at the top of your lungs that reminds you how much you love traveling across the country in your role as a “road warrior.”
Sometimes the trophies, titles and checks aren’t what keep the fire burning.
Sometimes it’s getting 3rd place in a nine-boat club derby that makes you remember how much you love the sport of bass fishing, and how sometimes the “big” stuff doesn’t matter all that much.
Alright Big Bass fans, the time has come for the Gerald Swindle Big Bass Classic on Lake Guntersville!
Although all the Oakley Big Bass Tour events are placed on the nations best lakes at the best times, the G-Ville event is arguably the most anticipated of the year- and for very good reason.
Lake Guntersville is the legendary TVA stand-out that is known for harboring one of the largest populations of big bass, due in part to it’s baitfish rich ecosystem, its vast grass flats along with its other diverse cover and structural elements.
Since there are so many options for anglers on G-Ville, I wanted to take some time to help simplify this body of water that is very capable of making even the best big bass hunters feel a little overwhelmed.
Sonar was recently mentioned in the June 10th issue of TIME Magazine's article Big Fish On Campus.

We all hate failure – as we very well should, in my opinion. However, I also believe that people tend to mistake learning for failure the vast majority of the time.
I have fallen into the trap of thinking that I have been experiencing failure this year because of my disappointing finishes, but in reality, I have been learning. Now that I'm at the halfway point of my season I think it's time to reflect on what's happened so far, although, honestly, I don’t really like to even think about it.
