We fished mid lake area water temperatures are still in the 51-53 degree range.

More fish have moved to the regular staging areas of 6 to 19 FOW and in to some of the pockets as shallow as 2 foot.

Sept 15, 2011, Lake Guntersville Fishing Reports Shannon and Melinda from South Alabama joined me this morning for a short trip out of Waterfront. The ladies had a top water bite all morning. Catching was a little slow today because of the wind and cold front, but the quality of fish improved. We found fish holding up in scattered grass, some of our best fish came in 3-5 FOW just off the mats. Most fish where in the 2-3.5 pound range with three in the 4 to 4.5 pound range in the mix. They managed 2 good limits of fish before calling it a day around 11am. There are several schools of bass roaming the lake has increased and which can drastically increase your numbers, if you locate one of them. Water temps dropped a little to 68-74 degrees. Our better fish came on Elgrande Sapo/Ribbet style frogs. We also caught fish on Assassinator buzz baits, www.assassinatorbaits.com (Slam in Guntersville Red), t-rigged OL Monsters, sammys and spooks . The frog/rat should really fire up in the next two weeks with cooler water temps and as the fish start to feed up for the winter! I have a few days available in September and Im taking reservations for October and November! Make your reservations now for some great action on Guntersville, Nickajack or Tims Ford. We supply all fishing gear, lures at no additional cost you and 110% dedication to making your trip successful. Lets go fish in Submitted by Capt.

Warming weather has sure made the fishing here on Guntersville Lake a lot more enjoyable. The fishing has been pretty tough the last couple of weeks. We have finally started to come out of the deep-freeze and the bass bite is starting pick up a little. I fished a B.A.I.T. tournament last Saturday with a good friend. The bite was slow but we did manage to catch the only 5 fish limit of the tournament. Our fish weighed 14 lb 9 oz. Second place was a little over 9 pounds. We also had big fish, 4lb 6 oz. That is some pretty tough numbers for Guntersville. For the rest of Michael Seeley Lake Guntersville Guide fishing report go to http://www.reelreports.com/ice-has-melted-on-guntersville-12124.html

The warm days are moving the bass up on the flats, and fishing is picking up everyday. There is still a little deeper cold water to deal with but we are seeing a move to pre-spawn and the best days are ahead! When the deeper water starts to warm rattle bait fishing will be on and you’ll just have to reel and hold on!
This past week we saw some definite change to the better, the bass are moving up during the warm parts of the day and we took advantage of it a few days this past week, boating some good numbers and some good size bass.

Lake Guntersville Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is in full spawn now the water temperature has climbed up to 64 degrees. The large female bass will be on the beds and holding tight. Spawning bass won't be feeding aggressively at this water temperature but they will be catchable. In addition, all bass don't spawn at the exact same time or water temperature. If you aren't a site fisherman, you should be able to find some larger females and male largemouth on the standard spring patterns. Female bass will really start to slow down on feeding so fishing is going to be slower for a few weeks until they move into active patterns again.

Lake Guntersville Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The crappie spawn should be really heating up now. Crappie prefers to spawn on gravel bottom typically with brush and/or emergent vegetation for cover. If the lake is void of gravel bottoms, find the rocks or rip rap. Crappie will use the larger structure rocks for cover. Cast some small grub baits in the shallows looking for the spawning crappie. Good luck today!

Lake Guntersville Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The water temperature is climbing and the catfish will start becoming more active now. The catfish spawn is right around the corner and generally all catfish species will be looking to spawn. Blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish spawn in much the same areas. Mostly spawning in deep tree lay downs that have lots of shade, holes in the bank, sunken barrels and tires. With baitfish becoming active, it?s time to catch some small sunfish, bluegill, shad and frogs and getting the line in the water.
