Davis Wins Bass Fishing League Tournament on Lake Guntersville

Davis Wins Bass Fishing League Tournament on Lake Guntersville Alex Davis won the Bass Fishing League (BFL) Choo Choo Division tournament on Lake Guntersville

SCOTTSBORO, Ala. (Oct. 2, 2017) – FLW Tour pro Alex Davis of Albertville, Alabama, weighed a two-day cumulative of 10 bass totaling 34 pounds, 9 ounces to win the Bass Fishing League (BFL) Choo Choo Division tournament on Lake Guntersville. For his win, Davis pocketed $7,704.


“On Saturday I caught 20 keepers – it was a great day,” said Davis, who earned his third career-victory in BFL competition. “My heaviest came from a 20-yard stretch that had hollow milfoil surrounded by hydrilla. It was near shore and ended up being the area that carried me through the tournament.”


Davis said 8 of 10 fish that he weighed in were caught on a black Jackall Kaera Frog.


“I started out at the stretch Sunday, but wasn’t able to put anything in the boat,” said Davis. “After letting the area rest, I returned and caught two keepers including a 5-pounder using a (black and blue) Jackall Archelon.”


Following those fish, Davis said he was forced to leave his area due to large waves.


“I went to a spot where I had gotten couple of bites in practice, but when I got there, my trolling motor cable broke,” said Davis. “I spent the rest of the day putting my Power-Poles down, fishing and then moving the boat with my outboard. Luckily, I was in an area that didn’t really need a trolling motor to be productive.”
