Lake Guntersville Bass Fishing Report – Bass fishing slowly picking up on Gville

Category : BASS FISHING REPORTS, HAWK TALK

February 24, 2016 by Kevin Hawk

The bass fishing on Guntersville has been up and down this week.  My clients and I experienced some tough days only catching a few fish, but have also had some good days as well.   The biggest bass caught by one of my clients this week was a little over 6 pounds.

It seems more and more fish are starting to move shallow.  My clients and I are targeting grass in 4 to 8 foot of water with lipless crankbaits, jerkbaits, and vibrating jigs on both the upper end and the lower end of the lake.  Crawdad-colored lipless crankbaits, shad colored jerkbaits, and vibrating jigs have produced best.

With the water temperature at or below 50 degrees in most sections of the lake a slow presentation has been working best for us.   Slowly lifting and dropping the lipless crankbait and vibrating jig through the grass is producing more bites than a straight retrieve.  Also, letting the jerkbait sit for several seconds at a time is important as many of the bites are coming while the lure isn’t moving.

I expect the fishing only to get better in the weeks to come.

If you’d like to book a trip on Lake Guntersville this spring please contact me for current availability.
