Don’t you wish you could pay your bills with just one fish? A few lucky folks can make that dream a reality at the Alabama Bass Trail at Wheeler Lake. Each competitor will cast his or her lines and see what comes up. Even if you don’t know much about fishing, you can stream—no pun intended—the event online on April 10.
What is the Alabama Bass Trail?
The Alabama Bass Trail is a five-part competition designed to see who’s the best reeler out there. It offers both North and South divisions. Each month from February to June, anglers can compete against the best in another competition. Once April arrives, they can also gather at Wheeler Lake and see who will net the latest prize.
Competitors fish in teams! They also will cast their lines in each leg of the competition—so that’s quite a bit of time out on the water.

Anglers in the North Division will soon pack their bags. Their destination? The Alabama Bass Trail at Wheeler Lake. Hosted in conjunction with Decatur Morgan County Tourism, this part of the competition takes place on April 10 at—you guessed it—Wheeler Lake.
Earning points isn’t as easy as it sounds! Only certain catches will earn eligibility: smallmouth bass, spotted bass, and largemouth bass.
