Big Bass Splash registration underway

Over the past 20 years, the Mountain Lakes Chamber of Commerce has brought Sealy Outdoors and the McDonald’s Big Bass Splash to Lake Guntersville in Scottsboro, and every year it continues to grow! Bob Sealy, head of the organization said, “We are excited about coming back to Scottsboro, Alabama at this great lake. It is now the largest amateur tournament of its kind in the South. We know this lake [Guntersville] has a great bass reputation.”

In 2024, the total of amateur anglers is expected to grow again as they try their skill at the $300,000 in cash and prizes to be awarded during the 20th Annual McDonald’s Big Bass Splash.
The three days of fishing and family fun will be held at Goose Pond Colony on June 7th, 8th and 9th in Scottsboro. There will be 15 places paid in cash each hour of each tournament day beginning with the 7 – 8 a.m. hour and continuing through the 1 – 2 p.m. hour for the 15 single heaviest bass weighed in.

First place for each hour will take home $1,500!

Contestants weighing in the first 3.00/4.00/5.00 exact weight bass each day of the tournament will win $1,000. In addition, all contestants are eligible to win the grand prize, a Phoenix 919 Pro XP powered by Mercury, equipped with Minn Kota, Humminbird, and Power Pole in the famous “Elimination Drawing.” Additionally, overall awards include a cash payout for 2nd through 5th place winners.

Registered kids ages 5 – 12 can catch any kind of fish and be eligible to win prizes in the “Little Anglers Tournament.”
