Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 9/19/20
It won’t be long before the B.A.S.S. elite will be here on Guntersville with that occurring the first weekend of October; I believe it will be a great showing for them as we are experiencing a unusual fall with cooler temperatures, and hence cooling water temps. This is making the bass more active than many of the past years this early in September and producing some good times on the lake. There always up and down times in the fall but its looking good so far.
Baits this past week I stuck mainly to search baits, Picasso buzz baits, Picasso spinner baits, Picasso chatter baits, and Tight-line swim jigs ¾ oz to get down into the grass. We also fished some Missile bait 48 stick baits when they were not chasing and fished over the top some with SPRO frogs with mixed results. We stuck in 6 to 10 ft. of water most of the week. Key was bait fish as without it you just did not get bit.
Come fish with me I have guides and days available to fish with you no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great day on the water. We fish with great sponsor products, Ranger Boats, Lowrance Electronics, Boat Logix mounts, Mercury Motors, Vicious Fishing, Duckett Fishing, Navionics mapping Power Pole and more.

Fall and Heavy Grass
As we progress into October, Guntersville Lake will grow thick with heavy grass and the bass will move deeper and deeper into the grass to hide from the sun and the change in oxygen levels. One of the unique things about any lake with heavy grass cover is that the bass move from the deep suspending bottom areas of the lake to the heavy grass; there is basically two reasons this occurs the first is the bait fish move into the grass and the next is that the grass creates a cover that has cooler water under it while hiding the fish from the bright sunny October days. It’s also a known fact that if we are going to see a turn-over on the lake it occurs in October and when this occurs the lake becomes dead and the only place that has enough oxygen to hold bass is the grass areas.
With that said; there are a few options that I like of ways to catch fish during these dog days of August; flipping heavy bulky weighted bait through the grass is one and fishing over the top with a SPRO frog is the other. Both of these presentations require patience and persistence as neither are going to be consistent action all day long. While flipping I like to punch a heavy 2 oz. weight into the holes and edges of the grass; I believe the closer the heavy grass is to deep water like the ledges the more chances you will get to catch good fish while punching your bait to the bottom.
While a frog appears to be totally different because it is fished on top; it really is not. The frog is still a typical fall bait fished in and around bait fish and heavy cover. The Frog also creates a reaction from a bass, bass are positioned in heavy grass next to small openings and holes in the grass and the frog also creates a reaction, it is just on top of the water. Both these presentations are big fish techniques and if you can take the heat and stay focused you can catch several fish during a day on the water in the heat of October!
