On April 20th through the 23rd, the BASS Elite Tournament Series will hit Lake Guntersville.

Guntersville is a weed-filled reservior on the Tennessee River chain and it consistently produces bass in the 4-8 lbs. range, and can also produce bass that top 10 lbs.

My opinion is that they will be hitting it right after the main spawning session is over, and that post-spawning bass will dominate the tournament scales. There will still be a few bass that are taken while on their beds, but I believe that they will be a shadow to the main catches.

Depending on the weather between now and then, I would guess to venture that stringers of 25-28 lbs. will dominate the first day weigh-in, and they will hold steady around 18-20 lbs. for the rest of the tournament.

I live 1 hour from Guntersville, and I am going to try to check out both the BASS Elite final day weigh-in, and the final weigh-in for the WBT tournament. I will try to get pics if I do get to go.

lol i know :) Yea, they did okay, they had some tough conditions and cold front conditions, but they nailed a giant and a few other pigs. I think they had 3 over 5 pounds if i remember. All of their big ones came on the sizmic toad :)

I don't doubt ya, bud. I can guarantee that 90% of the field of the Elite Tourney will be fishing weeds. There are that many weeds in G-ville. LOL If you stay around G-ville too long, you will have weeds growing from your nose and ears! ;D

12. Mark Tucker

Kelly Jordan is in 13th, Denny Brauer is in 16th, Aaron Martens is in 17th, Ish Monroe is in 33rd, Skeet Reese is in 34th, Randy Howell is in 38th, Greg Hackney is in 43rd, Rick Clunn is in 44th, and Bradley Stringer (for Mike) is in 48th.

The reason that I hope that these are 100% correct is that this weekend, the weigh-in boards on have froze time and time again. Right now, as I type this, it still does not have a weight for Jason Quinn, and it's almost 30 mins after the weigh-in was due to end. It's been stuck on the same angler for about 15 mins now.

So, 3 of the anglers DQ'ed this season are in the top 5 for this tournament, with KVD and Alton Jones being DQ'ed for Santee. Seems like this DQ has not hurt their resolve or their mental toughness for this tournament.
