Guntersville Lake, Alabama - Freshwater Fishing Report

Curtis Staley

This report is over the last few weeks. The day before the big cold fronts hit was the best day I have had so far with boating around 20 that afternoon. I started around noon and quit around 4:00. Traps and crankbaits were the deal in 7 to 12 feet. The next day I got out was the Sunday after all the big cold front and it was slow and all I could get them to bite was a jig fished really slow. I could see them just sitting there on the graph but it was like force feeding them and all I caught was 4 decent ones and then I broke a trolling motor cable and had to call it quits. That kept me off the water most of last week until I could get new cables, which came in just before I had a few trips booked. On Saturday the fish bit better early and the afternoon was tough. We caught all but one before noon and even though it was a grind all day we had around 10 bites. Yesterday I spent the day looking and checking a different area of the lake out which turned out to be a bad choice with the high winds. That area of the lake was really muddy and after 5 hours of fighting the wind I called it a day and I don't believe I even had a bite. I'm getting ready to head out now to look for some more areas in my key area where I have caught fish on every outing. I am spending most of my days right now scouting and getting ready for a busy season with the number of trips already booked.

I have days open if anyone wants to get out.
