Welcome to the American Fishing Tour

Laney wins on Lake Guntersville 


Division 29, Alabama North, Larry Laney of Bryant, Al is one step closer to the 2018 ABA National Championship with another 1st Place win during the American Fishing Tour bass tournament held at Lake Guntersville on the 21st of April. 18 anglers fished this event with four of them finding limits.  The temperature started out at 54 degrees and was slick calm during the first hours.  The wind kicked up about lunch time and seemed to kill the bite for most people.  Larry credited a crankbait bite for his 15.48-pound winning stringer.  James Stoler was blessed with a strong start on a rattle trap to end up in second with 13.86 lbs.  Ken Draskovic threw a stick worm to catch his 13.00 lb limit for 3rd.  Retired Navy Veteran and expert Co-Angler, Chuck Quann won the big fish award with a 6.82-pound giant.
