For those of you that fish Guntersville on a regular or semi-regular basis know what is happening in Roseberry Creek as far as the spraying of florodine to kill the grass. Some local politicians and money hungry landowners aren't happy with just the localized TVA spraying of grass around the houses and boat ramps, they want the whole creek sprayed. This is several hundred acres of water. Fisherman have tried to make their voice heard to no avail. I would like to ask that all of you consider that on your next trip to Guntersville, you do not spend a dime in the city of Scottsboro. Please try to launch your boat, lodge, eat, etc. in the city of Guntersville & bypass Scottsboro. If everyone will make their voice heard to the city of Scottsboro then maybe other surrounding towns and communities will see the economic impacts and refrain from killing the grass. Guntersville is probably one of the best fisheries in the world right now and it's because of the vegetation.

If you'd like more info in what's going on, PM me and I'll send you some links.

After a few years of spending thousands of bucks, they'll give up.

Besides, there is about 40,000 acres of grass on that lake. It'll kill the fishing in Roseberry but the rest of the lake it won't.

Also look for lawsuits to be filed before it happens. There are some wealthy fishermen who are looking into doing this from what I'm told by friend's that live there.

They'll be digging their own grave.

I can't understand why TVA is going to let them do this. TVA is asking for some bad, bad PR. Fishing is the #1 thing on Guntersville, not greedy pleasure boats.

Although I will agree with them on one point. THe grass last year on Roseberry was so bad that you could barely get from the boat ramp at Jackson Park to the channel by July. In an area such as Roseberry, where there is probably 4000 acres of water, there should be some kind of compromise on which grass to kill. Although if you don't kill it all, killing a little won't help.
