We had an awesome day bass fishing Lake Guntersville, AL this fall. We want to give a big shout out to our guide, Capt. John Manor. If you’re ever in Northern Alabama and want to catch a lot of fish and have the time of your life, look him up! John also taught us a ton of great fishing tips and techniques.
John set us up with a blade bait that literally SLAYED the fish. We caught everything from Largemouth bass, yellow bass, white bass, bluegill…even a 6 pound blue catfish! This was a 4 hour trip and at one point things did get a bit slow. That’s when John had us tie on some Texas rigged rubber worms. When that didn’t work, we moved, tied the blade bait back on and caught more fish.
Lake Guntersville is not only one of the most famous big bass fisheries in the country, it’s an amazingly beautiful place. The mountains that surround the lake look like something you’d see in upstate New York or Canada.
This trip was a vacation and house hunting expedition for us. Our goal was to buy a house on or near Lake Guntersville. As it turned out we didn’t find a house we liked in Guntersville, but we did buy a house on Lake Wheeler. Wheeler is about 1.5 hours west of Guntersville and has us positioned within 1.5 hours of some of the most famous fisheries in the country: Lake Guntersville, Lake Wheeler, Lake Wilson, Pickwick Lake, Lewis Smith Lake, The Tennessee River and the Elk River.
