Fishing Reports

For Lake Guntersville, AL

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

  The fishing the past week has been up and down. We are catching most of our fish on soft plastics and jigs fished in 5 foot or less. Areas that have hard bottoms seem to be the best. If you get to fishing to fast you will blow right by them. There are a lot of fish that have spawned but I feel the bigger groups are still to come. We are catching some fish that are post spawn and a lot of the fish we are catching a peeing which are the males on beds. The bigger fish seem to be in a little funk right now with all the ups and downs in the weather. Every time I think it’s getting right another cold front comes in and sets it back but we aren’t far from it turning wide open. Here are a few pics from one of my client’s better fish. I still have a few days in April and May open if anyone wants to get out.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville, AL 3-31-16, Guide Service,

  I have been unable to post here lately due to not having any internet at the house but now that it is taken care of I will get better about posting. I going to make this post over the past few weeks since I have posted. When the past full moon hit I felt that every fish in the lake was going to hit the banks for the spawn. The water temp was up into the mid 60’s and we was seeing fish cruising everywhere and then the cold front hit and the water temp fell back into the upper 50’s  and then we warmed up and this last cold front came in which keeps prolonging the big spawn. There are fish bedding right now and I have caught some sight fishing but they are not everywhere. Up in the shallows when you find them are mostly males. The big fish seem to still be on out in the 6 to 8 feet range but I really feel that when the new moon hits it’s going to be game on. We have been catching fish on a variety of baits. A texas rig with creature style baits are working well, swimbaits, crankbaits, swim jigs are all producing. I still have a few dates in April open since I haven’t been able to post. I have the 6th and 7th, 13th, 14th, 16th, 19th,  23rd and the 26th . In May I have the 3rd through the 7th, 14th, 21st and the 23rd through the 27th. Here are a few a pictures from the past few days.

  The water is still pretty dirty but you can find areas with some cleaner water in them. The past few days the bite has picked up every day.  The falling water hasn’t helped anything though but over the next few days things should really improve as the water level gets back to normal and starts to clear up.  Traps, jigs, crankbaits, and chatterbaits have been the way to go. We have been hitting our fish in little wolf packs. When you catch one you will catch more pretty quick. We have been having several short strikes over the course of the day but that is due to the falling water. The ones that get it are getting it. These pics are just of a few of the better ones we had on Saturday’s trip. I still have the 14th, 17th, 19th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th 25th, 26th, 28th and 29th open in March if anyone is wanting to get out. Just shoot me an email or send me a text or call if you need to set something up.   Curt Staley’s Pro Guide Service 256-990-0376 Lake Guntersville, Alabama Guntersville Bass, Guntersville Bass Guide Mail to: read more

I just wanted to drop a quick report out about the bite just before all this weather and about the conditions we are having. The bite seemed like it was really starting to turn on before all this rain. Traps, crankbaits and a jig are all we needed before this as they were producing some 30 fish days . I haven’t been out the past few days due to all the storms and today the wind has really blown with gust over 40 mph from the weather reports I have seen. They have had flood warnings in affect and the water is going to turn to mud and the areas that aren’t being affected by all the run off will be affected by the winds. I will be out first thing in the morning to check all the areas that I have been catching fish from. We had been catching our fish from 4 to 10 feet of water and as deep as 15 feet.  Some fish have been up on the flats but our biggest have been coming from outside grass lines in 7 to 10 feet. I’ll drop an update out sometime in the next few days when I can see what this weather has done to this lake. I still have some dates open in March and April but my phone has been ringing off the hook so if you are thinking of going it may be a good choice to get your day or days booked.

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.
