Another great day of fishing on Lake Guntersville for these 2 guys from Ohio! They got to experience some consistent action with Choo Choo Shakers and Swimjigs around shallow grass. The water level is up due to the recent rains and the fish have really moved up into shallow flats and bays and are aggressive. The water temps averaged in the low to mid 60's and in most areas the water clarity is a little stained, but not extreme. It's fun so get out and enjoy it! Mike Carter

I had several trips on Lake Guntersville last week that that included a 4 day corporate trip put on by Mike Gerry of Fish Lake Gunterville Guide Service, and had some "extreme" ups and downs with catching some solid fish. When the ups were going there was some solid fish, but when the downs moved in the quality went slack but at least my clients were still able to catch some small ones. The winds from last week created some serious havoc for fishing conditions on the lake which also limited a lot of the areas that I could get them in to fish effectively. I had my clients using everything, and yes this includes the "kitchen sink"! The most productive patterns were focusing on shallow grass with Choo Choo Shakers and Swimjigs with Producer Swimbaits trailers. They also were

Lake Guntersville April 17th 2018
Lake Guntersville Bass are trying to spawn but mother nature keeps letting old man winter show back up... It just keeps getting cold here ... maybe 3 days we get to wear shorts then 4 days bundled up in our cold gear .. The water temp is struggling to get over 64 degrees .. I know we have bass that have spawned out bass spawning and still pre spawn, go back a month ago it didn't matter if it was cold and blowing 20+mph we caught them and we caught them good... and now its like when it gets cold we catch bass but they just are not doing it like they was...
Captain D's Cast 'N' Catchin Tournament was cut short by 2 hours due to the nasty weather that was bearing down on Lake Guntersville and we had our work cut out for us and a short time

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 4/14/18
Fishing this week had to overcome the affect of high pressure and north winds early in the day; combine that with some 30-degree type temperatures in the morning and fishing was good for those who were patient especially between 10 am and 3 pm. You had to find their pattern and wait on the wind to shift to the south each day, but it was worth it.
The fish are shallow their spawning in many areas of the lake and the bite is typical spawn bite; you must slow down look for spawning areas and the right kind of cover, but it was worth it. With the bite in the 2 to 4 ft. range soft plastics were the key to our catches, Missile Bait D-Bombs, Missile 48 stick baits and Missile Craw Fathers were all we fished all week.

I got out today on Lake Guntersville with a long time good friend that I grew up fishing and hunting with. When we were younger, "WAY YOUNGER", we would ride our bikes to our uncle's ponds and fish every evening we had a chance, and now here we are with expensive equipment and fishing together again but this time in "BIG WATER". We no longer use shorts, waders, or bicycles to catch fish. We now take a little lazier approach with expensive vehicles and expensive boats and spend a lot of money on gas for the both of them to persue what we chased and enjoyed as children. We've came a long way since those days and we still enjoy seeing our poles get bent and our "strang stretched"! With the cold north wind from this morning the fishing was slow, but for a great friends
