Guntersville - Freshwater Fishing Report
A recent trip with a father and son fishing team this week to Alabama's largest, man made impoundment Guntersville lake, located near the town of Guntersville, yielded over 50 bass.
Including several fat, pre spawn female bass weighing 4-5 pounds, a 6 pounder, one weighing 7 pounds and a 9 pound bass, with the biggest bass caught by the young 13 year old boy. What a day!
Rattling half ounce model lipless lures and suspending jerk baits in shad and crayfish colors were the best lures over all. Although we tried it all!
Water temps are close to 60 degrees and most bass have worn off or bloody tails, meaning they are already making beds. Spawning bass!
March and April are good months for these very shallow bass and some very big bass. We had four bass weighing over nine pounds each, two - 10 pounds and an 11 pounder, in March last year!
May and June topwater action with post spawn bass! Make plans now to fish Guntersville lake this spring!
Of course fishing with Reed Montgomery of Reeds Guide Service, "the lake's oldest and all of Alabama's, oldest professional guide service for over 40 years."
