Lake Guntersville Bass Fishing Report – July 12th, 2015 – Kevin Hawk


North Alabama had significant rain and cooler weather through the first week of July which dropped Lake Guntersville’s water temperature from 90 to the low 80’s and also decreased the water clarity.  As a result, the tightly grouped offshore fish dispersed some and were a little more difficult to locate until the air and water temps began climbing again.  However, my clients and I rotated through and fished several spots to put together fun days on the water .

My clients caught between 10-25 fish per trip with the best single trip five-fish limit weighing 28 pounds.  Fishing slowly on bottom with a 3/4 oz 4×4 Football Jig in Defensive Craw and a 3/4 oz Picasso Shake-E-Football head paired with a Green Pumpkin 6” Yamamoto Senko continued to out produce all other techniques.

Gville’s consistency during the summer months is impressive and I enjoy guiding my clients on the lake when it’s hot and humid.  However, it’s important to remember to drink water throughout the day to stay hydrated and also wear the proper clothing to shield the sun’s rays.  A hat, sunglasses, long-sleeved performance shirt like the Stormr UV Shield and sunscreen are a must.  Getting dehydrated or sunburned can ruin a great fishing day and prevent you from getting back on the water for more action.

If you’re interested in booking a trip please call or email me to confirm availability.
