Free boat ramps and private marinas dot the lake's perimeter. Fishing, boating, camping, hunting and eagle watching are popular sports in the area. Eagle watching centers onGuntersville State Park and the dam during the winter, though some bald eagles stay all year. Guntersville lake fish habitat includes milfoil and hydilla weed beds from which big bass explode on topwater baits.
