We're on Lake Guntersville in Alabama today in search of big largemouth! We've got one day to figure it out so we have to eliminate water quickly as we try to locate the big bass this lake is famous for. Matt combines the power of mapping with an array of crankbaits and swimbaits to cover water quickly and efficiently and ultimately finds exactly what he's searching for. Come along...
The day starts off with a variety of baits on deck. Matt is throwing a squarebill crankbait, whopper plopper, frog, spinnerbait, keitech, gantarel, and deep crankbait just hoping to connect with a fish that can give him a clue what stage the bass are in. Any time you fish a new lake the first bite is key to the success of the entire day. Matt's first bite however came shallow and threw him a curveball that required a few hours to solve.
After probing the shallows with a variety of baits Matt returned to his original plan of fishing deep ledges and breaks in search of schooling bass. That decision turned the entire day around as Matt began loading the boat with fish! Below is a breakdown of the gear and equipment Matt used to find success on Guntersville in one day without any outside help.
