Guntersville: Bass Nirvana

If you've never fished Guntersville, you owe it to yourself to map out the distance.

North American Fisherman was thrilled to be invited down to Guntersville Lake, Alabama to sample the legendary largemouth bite. This reservoir on the Tennessee River is famous for good numbers of huge fish.

We were the guests of Marty Sexton of Yamaha Marine, and he didn't disappoint. As usual for early fall, the bass were keying on shad so the guys were throwing Berkley Hollow Bellys in the shad pattern.

The schools were herding shad at the time, so the largemouth bite was nothing less than 'lights out'!
