Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 8/16/14 This past week had some ups and downs, a couple of the days we struggled for bites and the others proved out to be very successful! The thing that was constant regardless of the number of bites was size; the fish we did catch had some good size and fought with a passion. The other thing was the bass seemed to hit consistently on a couple of baits; the Tight-Line swim jig with a Missile Bait Shock Wave swim bait and the other was a big worm rigged on a heavy weight worked on the bottom. We did fish a few other things from SPRO frogs, and SPRO Fat John 50 square bill crank bait, and caught some fish on them; these fish seemed smaller than the swim bait or worm bite fish. We were also blessed this past week with some cool unseasonable weather that made being on the water very pleasant and comfortable allowing us to really enjoy the beauty and calmness of being on the lake during what is normally a very hot uncomfortable time of year. The week was just great and enjoyable time for my customers! There is some great fishing ahead as we are moving to the fall bite, the SPRO frog only tournament is near and good times are nearly upon us! Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to help you enjoy a great day on the water. I have days and guides available to fish with you!

Late Summer Bass Fishing on Guntersville Lake, Al. Impounded 1939 By Reed Montgomery / Reeds Guide Service Website www.fishingalabama.com * Hot Bassin'! On Alabama's largest, man made Tennessee River System lmpoundment Guntersville Lake, the bass fishing is "big" during the late summertime season. * That is, if you can stand the heat! With the months of August and September the hottest months of the entire year, displaying air temps often matching the water temps in the low 90's, many anglers have resorted to fishing for the lake's so noted big, largemouth bass after the sun goes down, at night! However, bass tournament anglers, casual anglers, guided fishing trips, and those anglers that are forced to fish during the daylight hours due to their scedules. Some are now either fishing right before dawn and just after dawn, or fish during the late evenings. But, if you can stand the heat there are times all throughout the hotter portion of the day, that these "bass in the grass" will hit your lures! Especially one lure type. * Choosing Frogs - Fishing in and around the lakes often thick and matted types of grass like Eurasian millfoil and hydrilla calls for choosing the correct lures, one lure that when retrieved right through the nastiests of scum and aquatic weeds, will return with, hopefully a big bass instead of bringing in a bunch of scum and weeds. This calls for the use of one lure type in particular, one lure that still continues to fool big bass on Guntersville lake and its easily fished...anywhere! The Frog! * Frog Types - Various types of imitation fake frogs are now sold on today's market, but basically there are two kinds of frogs that an angler should be fishing while on Guntersville Lake. Not only good during the hot, late summer period but a good lure choice for fishing for big bass all throughout the Fall and early Winter seasons as well! One type of frog is a hollow, rubber-bodied frog with two weedless hooks and a trailing skirt or set of legs. Spro Lures or Real Target are good choices. Another type is a soft plastic frog, one you insert a big, 4/0 to 5/0 wide gap worm hook in, featering two kicking legs or feet. Zoom and Mann's both make a good soft plastic frog! You should have (rigged and ready), both types of frogs and fish each frog type every few minutes on Guntersville Lake...no matter what time of the day! * Frog Retreives - The hollow bodied types of frogs can be hopped, allowed to stop and sit motionless or they can be retrieved fast, as if trying to get away from a predator. Like a big, largemouth bass! The single hook, soft plastic bodied frog can be fished the same way. But when retrieved fast it resembles and sounds like a buzz bait! So it may cover more water, faster! There are days when Guntersville lake's often very picky bass will choose one frog type over another. But if two - three anglers do not fish both frog types, they may never know the best model for the most bites on any given day. So, always try both! * Or, you can always call on Reeds Guide Service...first! Guiding on Guntersville Lake and other Alabama lakes for over 40 yeare.
