  • Madness Of March 2019 chapter 3 busting wide open

    We are seeing some big fish show up on the end of our lines. Lake Guntersville Bass are wanting to be wide open but there is just something missing... We've had a full moon the water is steadily warming ( 54 in the mornings 60 late day ) catching quality with a big un or two mixed in... Wheres the wad's of bass grouped up? I can only think that they are coming, each day this week staging spots have had a good un on it , getting them in the boat has been a struggle this week but we did get some in.. one morning you catch em fast in like 20 mins then its one here one there most of the day or its one here one there pretty much all day. We did find a grass line that was loaded up with 3-4 pounders that bit for a good hour, checked it a couple of days later it was like a ghost town not one peck.. They are moving by the hour, where too? The backs of pockets and the back of creeks. Catching some with the red eyes and thats just something my buddy Bertus and I have noticed when they are about to go on bed and while they are on bed so yes I believe we are within days of the seams busting and they will be everywhere it'll almost seem like it happen overnight. Like last week I felt that it could be the week ... well the cold nights and brutal north wind really held them off.. Maybe it'll be this week but one things for sure April has always been a month you can mark your calendar that the bass on Guntersville will be spawning..
    We had one absolute giant caught this week Dave Castro landed it while fishing with Capt. Cameron,

    Todd Holstien had two days on Gville with one being awesome and the other was cold windy and had to work hard for the bites

    John and Paula spent two days as well on Gville with their 1st day getting cut short due to a and eye getting scratched by a contact ( and John did lose a Big Ole Bass ) and the 2nd days was full of catching and Paula didn't want John to feel bad by himself .. yep she lost her a Big Ole Bass as well... Oh and John is a heck of a chef, I got some the smoked tenderloin and burger and it was freaking awesome...

    Anthony fished with Capt. Jeff and broke his Personal Best and caught a few other fish on a tough Saturday trip.. Congrats Anthony


    Then Ol Bertus Fished a couple of hours after my trip

    Lets see what this week brings
