Guntersville Fishing Report Nov 25. 2010

I’ve had to cover a lot of water on Guntersville this week to put together a five fish limit each day.  I’ve fished as far north as Raccoon Creak, as far south as Spring Creek and everything in between.  

The better quality fish I’ve caught have come cranking certain rip-rap sections on either side of the causeways around the lake.  Anything in a shad color has been productive.  It’s important to place your boat parallel against the rip-rap before you make your cast so your crankbait stays in the strike zone the entire cast.  Also, make sure you pick a crankbait that dives deep enough to constantly come in contact with and deflect off the rocks.  The deflection will trigger the bass to strike your crankbait.  I’ve also been targeting grass lines with a green pumpkin jig and a shad colored lipless crankbait.  The most productive grass lines I’ve found are those with a good depth change next to them, both along the main river and in the creeks.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
