  • Big Bass Time

    Big Bass are showing up in the right places here on Lake Guntersville. We still are a 7-10 days away from a great ledge bite and yes there are some getting "out" already.
    Last week was a busy week for me it started with a great trip with a father and daughter that can flat out fish! We started with some smaller fish and kept improving in size as the day went on, it was the day that the fish decided to get with the program. As for the rest of the week , well I got to see one of my best friends as he was in town for the ABA Team Tournament. We practiced the rest of the week and found that the bass was still spawning pretty good and some was out and some was in transition. So checking areas where "they should be" was kinda bitter sweet, and what I mean is as you pull up all you can do is try not to get to excited from the history of the area because things have been really different this year and so you can guess a lot of the areas with great history wasn't very good , but we did manage to find some new ones and marked a few really nice schools and I had to make a few cast on some .. well just because its been a minute since I could .. As for Saturday in the ABA Open it was hard to stay away from the good stuff so I did damage control on myself .. went to a creek and made myself stay there the entire time ( just needed to fish 3 to qualify for the 2 day)
    Sunday was the Team Tournament and of course we had some rain overnight and cooler temps and you would've thought that would slow the bass down... nope... the change in the wind direction did, the lovely floating eel grass was getting blown back across the lake from all the south winds we was having and the north wind was sending back.. That took out some key spots, we caught 3 good ones and had two little guys that just didn't want to leave us ... we weighed 18.80lbs that got us 13th place . It was the best week I've had in a long time fishing with Steve really rejuvenated me and opened my eyes to what the bass are really doing . Sometimes we all get a little stubborn and don't see the big picture well at least I do and I had all the clues and just didn't realize.. So its time to start catching these Big Guntersville Bass.
