Big changes on the lake

Guntersville Lake, Alabama - Freshwater Fishing Report

Got out Yesterday checking a few areas out with a mother and daughter who was trying something new while driving from Memphis to Florida. We found things to be alot different from the previous days. As you can see in the picture above the water has came way up and the river has turned to mud. All we could catch was some small fish and we ended up with around 18 lbs for our best five. We fished about 4 hours. We never hit the big groups because the water was so muddy on those spots and I felt it was a wast of time and by past experience when the water gets that dirty the bite gets tough deep. When we arrived back at the dock we were surprised to see that the water had come up a few more inches since we started. The white bump rail on the docks was showing when we started and was under water when we quit.I will find out how much more it came up when I head down for this afternoons trip.

The picture above is from a six hour trip from a few days ago of the best five which went around 25 to 26 pounds.

I have days available if anyone wants to get out.

Good Luck
