Big Bass Splash LAKE GUNTERSVILLE; Scottsboro, Alabama – March 27-29,2015

Big Bass Splash

This was the 5th year for seven of the CBM members participated in Lake Guntersville Big Bass Splash.


Rod Russell and Chris LaFramboise

Will Presley Jr. and Matt Bertram

Rob Doughty and Terry Hall

Scott Gordon and Ray Noe (North Carolina)

Scott, Matt and Chris this was their first trip to Guntersville and I am certain they will return next year.Most of the team got in two or three days of practice prior to the three day tournament.

69,000 acre lake, 75 miles long you can imagine how much water there is to cover.  Water temps for the most part varied from 50 to low 60’s.  Unfortunately by the time the event got started the weather had cooled down to low of 29 degrees in the mornings.  Many anglers had ice on the rod tips.

Close to 1500 participants this year which hit a record.

Will Presley (5th), Chris LaFramboise (10th) and Ray Noe (9th) managed to cash checks for one of many hourly prizes.

This group had a fantastic time and would like to see many more join us there next year.  We should also just go ahead and add this to our lakes to fish next year we can hold a tourney during our practice rounds.


This is one of Chris’s fish on first day that didn’t make the hourly cut.
