Guntersville Lake, Alabama - Freshwater Fishing Report

The fishing has still been pretty hot. We are catching around the grass and also still have a few big schools out deep. Grass fish are biting swimbaits, top water baits and popping baits like chug bugs , rico's or pop r's are working best, worms, spinnerbaits and flippin big 1 oz. jigs are also producing. Deep fish are on crankbaits, swimbaits, worms and football jigs with a few also on a spoon.

If fishing the grass concentrate on 8 to 12 feet and if you want to fish deep the best ledges are the ones that drop from 15 to 25 feet.

Every day the fish seem to want something different than the day before. One day they will eat top water all day long and the next they won't touch it. Just keep experimenting until you find it. Some days they are really active and chasing and others they are buried up in the grass or suspending on the drops. When you find that one bait it is working all day long.

I am offering discounted trips to fish from your boat. I have had a lot of people asking here lately for me to go in their boat and help with sonar and side scan set up and reading. I also have been ask to help with the reading of map chips and weather it is humps or holes and how to pick the best areas to look for fish on. I can help with it all to the best of my abilities and what I look and watch for.

I have days available so if you need some help with something just give me a call or shoot me an email with your questions.

Good luck out there.
