Fishing in Lake Guntersville

Goose Pond Colony Marina was given a rave review in a feature article in the August 2009 issue of Heartland Boating magazine, and stated:

"While you are cruising the picturesque 75-mile long Guntersville pool on the Tennessee River, you are just missing the boat if you do not take time to stop at Mile 378.2 and enjoy what Mother Nature and man have to offer. Goose Pond Colony is about 29 miles above the Guntersville Lock and about 46 miles below the Nickajack Lock, making it for an ideal overnight stop."
