Looking for a big rebound after the Bassmaster Elite Series season opener a few weeks ago, Pro angler David Walker feels prepared and positive for this weekend’s tournament on Lake Guntersville.
“The last tournament didn’t turn out like I wanted,” Walker said, “but that’s part of this sport, even the days you try to avoid. Sometimes you hit a wall, sometimes you don’t. I do know that I can’t let what happened a few weeks ago have anything to do with this tournament. Mentally you just have to keep fishing.
“With that being said, it’s hard to not think hard about how you’re fishing because you start second-guessing yourself. You think, ‘Well, I didn’t make the right choice last time.’ It’s just a pitfall you have to deal with. I just have to work at it, get a good solid finish, and try to dig myself out of this little hole I’m in.”
With the daily launch at 6:15 a.m. CT and return for weigh-in at 3:15 p.m. at Guntersville City Harbor, the Cabela’s/GEICO For Your Boat Elite angler is excited about the potential big bass that can be bagged throughout the weekend. Historically known as a lake with tons of large fish, this could be an optimum chance for Walker to get back on track.
“It’s going to be good fishing this weekend,” Walker said. “There’s a lot of fish in this lake and we’re hitting it at a right time. There’s a lot of spawning fish going on here already and there’s going to be multiple ways of catching them.
“Some of these Elite tournaments you know how they’re going to play out ahead of time, but this one not so much. I don’t know what the winning weight may be, but there’s definitely going to be lots of fish caught.
“I’ve been doing this a long time, so I know what I need to do. I plan to clear my head and go back to what has always worked for me. Having Cabela’s and GEICO on the side of my boat, it pushes me even harder than ever. I want to do well for them and myself. Guntersville is a great place to rebound.”
