    If I had to pick one it would be Guntersville Lake. Big Cats, lake access, campgrounds, etc.

    I would have to break it down into a couple of different categories. For Blues, Wheeler Lake is tops. Wheeler Wilson and Guntersville are all great because of fish size and ease of bait acquisition(skippies). But if your after Flatheads, the Coosa chain of Lakes are unbeatable, Logan, Neely & Weiss. If its channels your after, the Chattahoochee has them in abundance and size, Lake Oliver to Eufalla. yep, thats the one I would choose

    Guntersville is one of the best lakes in the south. Its got great cover for the fish, its real deep in places, and just grows big fish of any kind.:smile2:

    Greg said it best. However I know that there has been recently a 100lb+ blue caught on Logan Martin and I have personally have caught them 50lbs on that chain.

    That seems like an awfuly big fish to come out of Logan Martin, especially being a blue. I'd like to see pictures of that thing.

    Just to let you know, There was a picture of a 71 lber in the Gadsden Times, a local newspaper, a few days ago.It was caught by some kid fishing under a bridge. A 100lb blue would definitely be extraordinary for the Coosa, but considering the abundance of food and the relatively light fishing pressure on the larger fish, it is very well within reason that not only are there 100lber's in the Coosa from Montgomery to Centre, I would venture to say that there is at least 1 or 2 world records in it. Just My Humble Opinion
