Sept 15, 2011, Lake Guntersville Fishing Reports Shannon and Melinda from South Alabama joined me this morning for a short trip out of Waterfront. The ladies had a top water bite all morning. Catching was a little slow today because of the wind and cold front, but the quality of fish improved. We found fish holding up in scattered grass, some of our best fish came in 3-5 FOW just off the mats. Most fish where in the 2-3.5 pound range with three in the 4 to 4.5 pound range in the mix. They managed 2 good limits of fish before calling it a day around 11am. There are several schools of bass roaming the lake has increased and which can drastically increase your numbers, if you locate one of them. Water temps dropped a little to 68-74 degrees. Our better fish came on Elgrande Sapo/Ribbet style frogs. We also caught fish on Assassinator buzz baits, www.assassinatorbaits.com (Slam in Guntersville Red), t-rigged OL Monsters, sammys and spooks . The frog/rat should really fire up in the next two weeks with cooler water temps and as the fish start to feed up for the winter! I have a few days available in September and Im taking reservations for October and November! Make your reservations now for some great action on Guntersville, Nickajack or Tims Ford.

Warming weather has sure made the fishing here on Guntersville Lake a lot more enjoyable. The fishing has been pretty tough the last couple of weeks. We have finally started to come out of the deep-freeze and the bass bite is starting pick up a little. I fished a B.A.I.T. tournament last Saturday with a good friend. The bite was slow but we did manage to catch the only 5 fish limit of the tournament. Our fish weighed 14 lb 9 oz. Second place was a little over 9 pounds. We also had big fish, 4lb 6 oz. That is some pretty tough numbers for Guntersville. For the rest of Michael Seeley Lake Guntersville Guide fishing report go to http://www.reelreports.com/ice-has-melted-on-guntersville-12124.html

The warm days are moving the bass up on the flats, and fishing is picking up everyday. There is still a little deeper cold water to deal with but we are seeing a move to pre-spawn and the best days are ahead! When the deeper water starts to warm rattle bait fishing will be on and you’ll just have to reel and hold on!
This past week we saw some definite change to the better, the bass are moving up during the warm parts of the day and we took advantage of it a few days this past week, boating some good numbers and some good size bass.

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

Lake Guntersville Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they arent going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
