Heart-Pumping Outdoor Action

Alabama is a prime boating and fishing destination, thanks to over 100 lakes and one of the longest navigational waterways in the United States, the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway. Cast your line into the 69,100-acre Guntersville Lake in northern Alabama to reel in big bass, or take advantage of excellent bream fishing on the Mobile Delta near the Gulf. Got your heart set on a 100-pound catfish? Your best chance of catching one is in Wheeler Lake in the northwest as flathead and blue catfish can grow to massive sizes here. Deep-sea anglers can hire a charter to snag red snapper in the summer.
