Guntersville FIshing Charter Neely Henry bass fishing report
Wow!!! I am thrilled to see my home lake is producing as good as it has in decades. 10th place in the local weekend tournament was 18 pounds. I had a guide trip today on Neely and it was just spectacular. We landed 40 and our best 5 fish was 19 pounds. We caught them every stop out on the river and in the creeks. A brown and orange jig as well as a dt6 crankbait were our best baits. We caught a mix of spots and largemouth with many being prespawn so the fishing should keep getting better.

Guntersville FIshing Charter April 9th Guntersville bass fishing report
Fish are in all 3 phases at the moment. There is a group of prespawners staging outside the bays and coves. There is a group up around the beds and a group of post spawn fish moving out of the spawning areas. These tennesee river bass don't hang around when they spawn they move quickly to post spawn areas to rest and recover. Last week the fishing was the best it has been in a while and my clients from Monday won their tournament Sunday with 24.88 pounds. Dragging plastics around beds is the best way to catch numbers but to catch that kind of weight staging areas with fish that are coming and going is the best tactic.

Guntersville FIshing Charter April 4th Guntersville fishing report
When the calendar flipped to April the fishing improved instantly. March was a bit of a struggle but with the warming water temperature consistently in the sixties the fish are getting acclimated and feeding. I did two trips Monday and we landed 37 total with 9 over 4 pounds. The shallow bite is the dominant pattern now with most of our fish coming in 1-3 feet of water on plastics. Shallow bays and coves where spawning activity is seen is where the most fish catches are occurring. As the water warms the bluegill and shad will start to spawn and that will yield excellent fishing. If you are interested in fishing with a USCG licensed captain call 256-744-5185. 
Guntersville FIshing Charter April 4th Guntersville fishing report
When the calendar switched to April the fishing instantly improved. March was a bit of a struggle but the water temperature has been in the sixties continuously for a couple of weeks and the fish are getting acclimated to it. I did two trips Monday and we landed 37 total with 9 fish over 4 pounds. The shallow bite is the dominant pattern now. Our best baits are soft plastics in 1-3 feet in the coves and bays where spawning activity is observed. If the weather will cooperate we will see bluegill and shad spawning in the coming weeks which can provide excellent fishing.

Guntersville FIshing Charter March 23rd Guntersville bass fishing report
With this unstable weather the fishing has been changing daily. Monday it was 28 degrees at daylight and the fishing was actually pretty good then it warmed up and the wind layed down later in the week and the fishing got tougher. On the windy days crankbaits and jerkbaits produced well but on the calm days we had to drag a jig on deep shellbeds near the creek channel. I did 2 guide trips this week and we averaged 20 fish per day with a couple of 7 pounders. As the weather stabilizes we will start seeing fish in all 3 stages with the best fishing being on the places where you can locate fish going and coming into the spawning regions.

Guntersville FIshing Charter March 15th Guntersville bass fishing report
There is a lot happening at guntersville right now. A big group of fish is on bed relative to the new moon and rising water temps. There are 3 large tournaments this weekend and the water level is fluctuating daily. I did 4 guide trips this week and we had to sample prespawn and spawning fish in different areas and depth zones to get bit consistently. We averaged 20 fish landed per day and our best 5 fish was around 17-18 pounds per day. We caught fish dragging plastics in beds and throwing crankbaits in 6-9 feet in the staging areas. I believe next week we will see a dramatic improvement in the fish catch rate because of more consistent conditions and this group of spawners will be post spawn.

Guntersville FIshing Charter March 8th guntersville bass fishing report
The bass are in transition at the moment at guntersville as a big group is preparing to spawn with the warming water and new moon approaching. The outside grass line fish have moved to the spawning areas and the creek channel fish have moved into the prespawn areas. There is also an abnormal amount of schooling fish at the moment which simply displays how healthy the lake is. I did 3 guide trips this week with anglers of varying skill levels. We landed 18-19 bass per day on average and our best 5 fish were in the 20 pound range. Yesterday the water warmed from 58 to 62 degrees and with the coming rain I expect excellent fishing from here on out.

Guntersville FIshing Charter March 1st Guntersville bass fishing report
The big ones are biting. If you want to catch a big fish March is the time to do it. Most of the fish remain prespawn at the moment and they are feeding up for the spawn. I did 3 guide trips last week and we averaged 20 bass landed per day and the size was excellent. The fish I am targeting are within proximity of the spawning bays but still out offshore in 7-9 feet. Points,humps and shellbeds with a current break within sight of the shallows are where we have been catching fish. Crankbaits,spinnerbaits and jerkbaits are my best producing baits at the moment. If you want to fish with a USCG licensed captain call 256-744-5185. 
Guntersville FIshing Charter February 22nd Guntersville bass fishing report
The weather is warming and the moon is waxing which means big groups of hungry bass are moving out of the channel and searching for food in the shallows. There will be a group spawn on this moon phase but I think the vast majority will remain prespawn for a while. The key to finding these fish is setting up on a high percentage area near a spawning flat. Points and humps are key features that can hold groups of big fish at the moment. I did 3 guide trips this week and we averaged 20 fish landed per day with the size being the best we have seen all year. Our largest 5 fish were over 22 pounds each day. The fish we are targeting are in 8-9 feet within site of spawning bays. Our best baits are crankbaits and jerkbaits. If you are interested in fishing with a USCG licensed captain call 256-744-5185.
