  • Lake Guntersville Getting Froggy

    Its starting to look like things are lining up.. Lake Guntersville is getting herself back together after a slow down a couple weeks ago.. Still a lot of moving going on as the bass are trying to figure out what they want.. But one thing is for sure the big ones are still there and mixed in with the elementary size bass.
    Grass... Yes the grass is starting to develop in to mats in select areas and has given us some great action... And this heat is bad but it will make fishing the mats even better as it cooks the top layer and gets all cheesy ..

    Water Temp : 86
    Clarity is 3 feet
    Heres a few pics:::

    Eric and I went out for a couple of hours to try to figure out the big bite and it seems we got a start on it.. with them being within 10-15 yards from where I've been guiding just hunkered down a little more then we have been fishing...


    We have had a fun week out here, looking forward to the transition into fall and see what is in store for us...

      With the spraying of the grass that is well underway, the grass on the main lake has been dying off rather rapidly. I went all the way to Hollywood, Al. and down past Waterfront this weekend during our 2-day and the grass is floating down the river in large chunks, and the rest is turning brown. There were 40+ boats spraying and Scottsboro is paying $500,000.00 to eradicate grass on the lake. This should lead for a rough time for all you guys. I wish you luck as I too am an avid fisherman. I will need to take my boat to another lake, as I hate to see this selfish act take place, I'm sure the Big G will end up being another Wheeler Lake.

      This is all news to me. Ive hardly seen more then one boat a day out there treating around the public areas.. If you have the proof of Scottsboro paying this I think we all would like to see it ..
