Understanding eddies and current seams are critical at Guntersville

What is an eddy? It is an area inwhich the natural flow of current is disrupted by an object creating a back flow or swirling of water. This effect creates an optimal feeding zone for all species of bass. At guntersville this effect occurs around bridges,islands,boathouses and other natural hard structure. By targeting these areas with the proper cast you can often catch several bass in a short period of time and often the largest bass in the lake will feed in these areas. What is a current seam? This is a linear formed path of current that is slower than the surrounding current. Like an eddy it is caused by hard structure deflecting and changing the flow of current. This effect can often be found near dams and is especially attractive to smallmouth and spotted bass. This week we have had immense current flow on the tennesee river and these current breaks have yielded outstanding catches. Last Thursday my client and I landed around 30 fish and several were over 4lbs. If you are interested in booking a fully guided trip call 256-744-5185 or visit www.shaneellisfishing.com
