Lake Guntersville Bass Fishing Report – Bigger bass starting to show themselves


While my clients didn’t catch high numbers of bass this past week, they made up for it by catching several solid size bass up to 7 1/2 pounds.

We’ve continued to fish the lower, mid, and upper sections of the lake focusing on pre-spawn staging areas close to deep water, and also some shallower flats in the afternoons.  We’ve seen water temperature range from 49 degrees in the morning to 55 degrees in the afternoon.

We’re targeting both vegetation and rock in depths ranging from 2 to 15 feet deep with reaction baits, like lipless crankbaits, crankbaits, and vibrating jigs.  The best retrieve speed has been slow, but it can change daily so make sure to vary your retrieve speeds.

The forecast is showing more warm weather this coming week, so I expect for more big fish to start moving shallow.

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