Mar 5-6 2014 Lake Guntersville – This report is for the last two days…the fishing is getting better each day on Guntersville. We fished mid lake area water temperatures are still in the 51-53 degree range. Our best results came on a Tightline Football head jig (Guntersville Special and Green Tequila) with twin turbo tail trailers from Missile Baits followed by a single swim baits worked dead slow on the bottom in 6 to 21 FOW. We also caught fish on rattle baits such as XCalibur XR-50’s and crank baits such as the Rapala DT 10 and DT 16’s including today’s big fish which Jamie at Goose Pond Bait, Tackle and Grill weighed for us at 8.25 . More fish have moved to the regular staging areas of 6 to 19 FOW and in to some of the pockets as shallow as 2 foot. Capt Phillip Criss a guide who works with us had a trip out again yesterday as well with a another great client for us and they had a blast catching fish on crankbaits worked in 10-16 FOW as well. I have days and guides available; make your reservations now for some great late winter and spring action on Guntersville or Tim’s Ford with full time Professional USCG Licensed and Insured guides. We supply all fishing gear including Duckett Fishing Rods, LEW’s reels; Top quality lures such as Rapala Lures, Missile Baits, Tightline Jigs and Vicious Line.

Don\'t listen to the previous report calling lake catoma a \"dead lake.\" I live on catoma and it is an excellent fishing lake if you are looking to take home some fish to eat. You won\'t likely catch a monster bass etc..., but you will enjoy a good day fishing (given the conditions are favorable). It\'s a clean lake and the fish are safe to eat. Plenty of bream, crappie, catfish, striped bass (not the big hybrid monsters), and best of all the spots(spotted bass). The guy who posted the comment that it\'s a dead lake either doesn\'t know how to fish, or had one of those \"dead days\" where nothing seems to bite, and judged it by that. But take my word, it\'s a fantastic lake to fish.
