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.

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.
Guntersville FIshing Charter February 15th Guntersville fishing report
Day 1 of the Toyota series at guntersville displayed the incredible fishery we have. 28 pounds is leading,20 pounds is 29th and 59th is 18 pounds. These weights are incredible and as the weather improves the fishing will just get better. You can catch them any way you want to right now. Livescopers are catching fish, the offshore rock piles are producing with a football jig and the shallow bite is improving daily. In March the first big group of fish will move into the spawning areas and the fishing will be excellent from that point forward. By April we will have fish in all 3 phases and in May the first big group will show up out on the ledges.

Guntersville FIshing Charter February 9th Guntersville bass fishing report
Water temps have risen from 39 to 55 in two weeks and the lake is fishing very strong. The BFL is Saturday and the Toyota is next week. I expect big weights at the top and the check cut will take a strong showing as well. I did 3 guide trips this week and we caught 20-35 bass per day with our best 5 ranging from 17-21 pounds per day. You can catch them any way you want right now. The main river ledges are producing, the shallows have fish and anything in between. Our best baits this week have been a swimbait,crankbait and a spinnerbait. If you are interested in fishing with a USCG licensed captain call 256-744-5185. 
Guntersville FIshing Charter February 2nd Guntersville bass fishing report
The weather has stabilized and the fishing is incredible at the moment. Last week I did 4 guide trips and we landed a total of 95 bass from 3-7 pounds. There are 3 dominant patterns at the moment. A big swimbait slow rolled around the bridge columns is a great way to win a tournament with huge weight. A football jig fished in 12 feet near channel edges on hard spots is also a great way to catch big fish at the moment. The shallow bite is also improving and a chatterbait fished in 6-9 feet out from spawning areas can be productive. If you are interested in fishing with a USCG licensed captain call 256-744-5185. 
Guntersville FIshing Charter Logan Martin bass fishing report
The bass fishing at Logan Martin is excellent at the moment. From interstate 20 down river the lake is clearing up and the fish are positioning in their usual prespawn areas. Gravel bars and chunk rock banks leading into spawning areas with deep water access are where I am catching the fish right now. I am catching about 15 fish per day with the best 5 usually around 14 pounds. As the water warms the bigger fish will start showing up and they will move closer to the pockets and bays where they will spawn soon. The best baits at the moment are a war eagle jig and a vision 110 jerkbait fished in 4-9 feet. If you want to fish with a USCG licensed captain call 256-744-5185.
