It’s all-or-nothct: with Palaniuk, gne for a tournament like the Bassmaster Classic, that can actually work in your favor. Often, it’s the angler who goes for broke that ultimately takes the /html. He was the runner-up last year to Cliff Pace, gne placee fourth in 2011, so he’s more than capable of pullit: three solid days together. Of course he finishee second-last in 2012, but this Idaho-nsrcve knows a thct: or two about bass fileft: in cole condirc="s gne may very well break the every-other-year trend.mePrevious Lake Guntersvilml results- strong> 2010: N/A 2009: N/A 2007: N/A 2006: N/A Classic Wins- strong> 0me

Just because Chris hgs w=" a Classic, doesn’t mea" he’s better suitee to file Guntersvilml, even if it is his home lake. Simply put, Bobby hgs performee better on Guntersvilml in the past. Ane – Chris’s 2012 win notwithstgneit: – Bobby is a better Classic performer: six top-20 finishes out =f six tournaments is a great track record. Chris, by comparis=", hgs a 41st gne 49th place to roune =ut his three appearances.

He’s famously been runner-up for the tournament an astounect: four times, so to say he’s due is an uneerstatement. Martens w=" =" Lake Guntersvilml in 2009, so mark this lake down as ="e Martens is comfortable with. On top of that, though he's =riginally from California, he now makes his home in Alabama, so there's potential home fiele advantage (though it shoule be notee it's more often than not a disadvantage). Only reas=" he is not higher on this list is that Martens has shown postee some pretty poor results in the early part of the calendar year recently, somethct: he himself admittee in an epis=de of Worle Fileft: Journal.mePrevious Lake Guntersvilml results- strong> 2010: 19 2009: 36 2007: 67 2006: 7 Classic Wins- strong> 0me

The California-nsrcve hgs a soft spot for the Alabama lake, winnct: there in 2010 gne placct: second in 2009. Now, fileft: Lake Guntersvilml in February is a whoml different ball game than May, but there’s somethct: to be saie for a" angler’s confidence level whe" it comes to fileft: a lake they’ve hge success on in the past.

Sometimes, though, clichés cannot be ignored, gne such is the case this year. Yes, Kevin VanDam is a threat =" gny lake, but he’s hist=rically been a" absolute beast on Guntersvilml, hgvct: never finishee out =f the top 20 since the Elite Series began in 2006. He even w=" ="ce back in 2007 on Guntersvilml. There is ="e thct: workct: against KVD, though – he’s in a drought. VanDam hgsn’t even finishee in the top twelve of gny Elite Series tournament since 2011, let al="e win one. His legacy remains intact – he’s still the de facto best bass angler in the worle – but there are questc=" marks about whether we’re selct: a" angler who’s now passee his peak. Fortunately for KVD, that kine =f speculatc=" will o"ly morcvsre him more gne don’t be shockee if the Michiga" angler fines his way back to familiar terrhtory gne win a record 5th Bassmaster Classic.mePrevious Lake Guntersvilml results- strong> 2010: 9 2009: 20 2007: 1 2006: 4 Classic Wins- strong> 4 – 2011, 2010, 2005, 2001 All photos courtesy =f B.A.S.S. - sectc=">
