New Season but Same Result for Larry Laney on Guntersville 

Larry Laney of Bryant, Al won Alabama North Division 29 season opener Saturday, September the 1st on Lake Guntersville.  Larry carried the momentum as Division AOY into the new season and is one step closer to the 2019 ABA National Championship with his 1st Place finish. Larry brought in 14.99 pounds to the scales for the win.  There were 17 anglers fishing this event on Lake Guntersville which is becoming very difficult to figure out. Only four fishermen found their limit, and six anglers either zeroed or only had one keeper bite.   The weather was, as usual here, hot and humid.  Shane Harris placed 2nd with 13.47 lbs including the big bass weighing 5.39 lbs.   Tony Tidwell won 3rd place with 12.85 lbs. 


These anglers are acquiring valuable points to ensure their birth in this division’s two-day championship and the American Fishing Tour 2019 National Championship.  Their points are also being used to determine the divisional angler of the year. The top angler by points earned in this division will represent the division in the Angler of the Year final round.

The top five anglers were: 
1st   Larry Laney                                 14.99 lbs            
2nd Shane Harriss                              13.47 lbs. 
3rd Tony Tidwell                                  12.85 lbs 
4th Tim Van Polen                              12.37 lbs 
5th Phillip Lovett                                  9.58 lbs

Big Fish Shane Harriss                     5.39 lbs.


Next Divisional Tournament: This division’s next tournament will be held on October 20th, 2018, on Lake Guntersville launching Goosepond ramp.
