Lake Guntersville Bass Fishing Report – Spring is here


The air and water temperatures have risen sharply over the past week here in North Alabama with air temps reaching the high 70’s and water temps into the mid 60’s.  I’ve also started to see pollen on the water as well.

The bass have started spawning and my clients and I have been targeting both shallow and mid-depth areas on the south end of the lake fishing close to spawning flats and bays.   We’re catching them out of the grass as well as on hard cover, like rock and wood.

The most productive techniques have been ripping shad-colored hard baits, like jerkbaits, crankbaits, and vibrating jigs out of the grass as well as fishing jigs and plastics around pieces of hard cover.

I expect the fishing to continue getting better in the weeks to come.

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