Lake Guntersville Fishing Report

The bite was really starting to turn on before this last cold front came through. The water temp was up around 60 and there was a lot of fish moving up and all the fish we were catching came from 6 feet or less on crankbaits and traps. After the cold front the water temp dropped almost 10 deg.  Into the low 50’s and a lot of the fish backed out. Cranks and traps are still producing along with a big swimbait and a jig. This next week things should really heat up with all this warm weather that is forecasted and that big wave of fish should really start to move in. Good times are coming as long as another big cold front doesn’t come back in. This is just a quick report since I had a little time and I am off to the lake for the afternoon. I will post some pics in my next report when I have a little more time and not in a hurry to get to the lake.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville, Fishing Report from Lake Guntersville Guide Service

This year has been so hectic that I just haven’t had time to get up any reports but I finally have some time so I thought I would give a little update on the fishing so far. We have been catching most of our fish in 8 to 10 feet of water on crankbaits in a milfoil and hydrilla mix.  Most of the bites have been really subtle and you think you are pulling the bait out of a clump of grass and then it changes direction and you realize it’s not grass. A few have really slammed it. The other fish we are catching are on jigs and traps and those bites have been more aggressive. We have caught fish as shallow as 2 feet and as deep as 15. We are also catching fish off rock mixed with some stumps. Somedays we have gotten bit off from almost every stop and then other days you will hit 3 or 4 places before getting bit but when you finally get bit there seems to be others. I have days open if anyone wants to get out. Just give me a call or text.

Fishing Report – 5/18/16 – 5/21/16 Lake Guntersville, Alabama

The bite the past few days has been a little tougher but we still managed some big fish. The bite today was on and we all only fished one bait all day. Once you can find that magical depth for the day its game on if you can stay on top of them. Even if you lose them for a bit they will show back up. Have several areas containing really big schools of fish and when they are on its hot and heavy. When they shut off you won’t even mark a fish. Move your positioning a little they will usually show back up and the bite is on for while again. Cranks and swimbaits are the first choice but big worms and jigs are working well also.   Curt Staley’s Pro Guide Service 256-990-0376 Lake Guntersville, Alabama Guntersville Bass, Guntersville Bass Guide Mail... read more

Fish Report May 17, 2016 Guntersville Lake, Alabama

The fishing the past few weeks has been up and down throughout the day. There will be slow periods throughout the day, BUT THEN….the bite will be FAST and HEAVY. When they are on…. THEY ARE REALY ON. We have been catching a lot of BIG FISH though. I am finding the fish are feeding on smaller baits this year than what they were eating last year. We have caught fish on a variety of different baits but the biggest thing is timing. If you can hit them when they cut loose its game on. Have some patience, keep searching and then hang on it’s probably going to be a real good one. The TVA is pulling less water, with the lack of current this year it’s hard to determine when Happy Hour will be. I have a few days towards the end of the month available and some June dates open if anyone wants to get out see what The Big-G will produce.   Curt Staley’s Pro Guide Service 256-990-0376 Lake Guntersville, Alabama Guntersville Bass, Guntersville Bass Guide Mail... read more

4-6-15 Fishing Report / Tip Lake Guntersville, AL.

Fridays full moon along with the warm weather has pulled some big waves of fish up and they are bedding big time. Fish plastics in four feet or less. Lizards, brush hogs, senko’s or any type of small creature bait. Stay covering water and you will find small stretches where they are bedding big time and you will catch 5 to 10 fish really quick. Look for hard bottoms and keep your eyes open and you just might find that fish of a life time laying just feet from your bait.
