As you can see from recent pictures, we have been catching some very nice largemouth bass on Lay lake! Although its been hot (in early August), all bass shown here have been fooled on topwater lures while fishing around weeds in 1-3 feet of water with water temps close to 90 degrees! Zara Super spooks, frogs and buzz baits have fooled some big bass with some weighing from 5-8 pounds! One picture shows me with several bass, a 5 pounder caught on a buzz bait, another one weighing about 5 1/2 pounds (caught on a frog) and the biggest a 6 pounder, caught on a Heddon zara super spook...at 11 a.m.! * NOTE - With this weeks predicted daytime highs near 98 degrees for Thursday, Friday and the next weekend I would suggest getting on the water at 5 a.m. (dawn) to have a good chance at fooling some big bass! Or you can always call (205) 663-1504 on Reeds Guide Service...first! Guiding on Lay lake and all other Alabama lakes for over 40 years! Days open in August and September...Website www.fishingalabama.com Thanks and Good Fishin' Reed Montgomery Owner of Reeds Guide Service Birmingham, Al.

Yes, although its hot in the low-to-upper 90′s, keep in mind, there will always be numbers of big, largemouth bass mostly found lingering in and around the multiple variety of aquatic reeds. These are catchable bass! The best lure right now would be an imitation frog. These fish are eating frogs day and night. Fishing like this requires strong rods and braided line to catch the Bass and keep them from getting tangled up by bringing them to the boat fast.
