Lake Guntersville Bass Fishing Report – The Grass is Still Producing Solid Bass


We’ve had a mix of weather recently in North Alabama, including typical cold temperatures for this time of year and some unseasonably warm days as well.  The bite has changed from day-to-day, but overall remains solid.  The water temperature is hovering around 52-54 degrees and the high water from a week ago has dropped to normal levels helping concentrate the bass on the grass edges.

My clients and I have focused our efforts on the upper end of the lake fishing from Goose Pond up to Scottsboro fishing both the main river channel and in the creeks.  Shad-colored 1/4 oz 4×4 Swim Jigs and single swimbaits fished slowly above and in the grass are producing best.   It’s really helped to make a conscious effort to slow down our retrieve as it’s produced more bites than a quicker retrieve.

There’s still a lot of grass present on the upper end of the lake, which should lead to consistent fishing throughout the month of December.
