Short Take: 69,100 acres; primarily shallow water filled with stumps, underwater ridges, and several types of aquatic vegetation. Although impoundment of this massive Tennessee River reservoir was completed in 1939, bass fishermen really did not discover Lake Guntersville until November 2, 1976. In the years since, this beautiful 69,100-acre lake, the largest in Alabama, has undergone a number of changes, the most noticeable being continued attempts by the Tennessee Valley Authority and other agencies to eradicate the lake’s Eurasian milfoil. This vegetation, somewhat similar to hydrilla in that it can completely cover shallow water and mats thickly on the surface, was the key to the lake’s successful bass fishery. Through the use of chemicals, mechanical harvesters, and grass-eating carp, most of the vegetation was eliminated by the early 1990s. Accordingly, the quality of bass fishing was eliminated, too. Slowly but surely, however, the vegetation returned, although not to the extent of the mid-1970s, and so did the fishing. Today, the Big G remains a truly viable and dynamic bass fishery. Primary Species: Largemouth bass.
