Can I ask what was the winning technique? Bait/color/presentation? Rod/reel/line combo? Water conditions/depths/cover/structure?
If you don't wanna share publicly, PM would be great. The likelihood that I'll ever fish at Guntersville without you as my guide is nil, so your secrets are safe with me!
I don't mind.
Rod: BPS Johnny Morris 7' MH, fast tip Reel: REVO Line: 15LB floroclear Lures: topwater. Spittin Image and zara spook (Tn shad pattern)
All topwater except for large fish (5.87) came on 10" worm on ledge. We found LARGE bass spawning about 3 weeks before our Tournament. We went back one week before and the bass were off bed, and we could only catch a few of the buck bass.....but that's what we wanted. Normally, after the spawn, the large females become lethergic for a few days before they put on the feed bag. We went back and the feed was on. The females were feeding and we caught around 20 bass in the 4.5- 5 LB range and culled out our limit of 25LBS. They hit topwater til 11AM. We left to fish ledges and that's were I caught the largest fish.
Honestly, it was one of the best days I've ever had fishing and it hit on a tournament day. Now, there is no where to go but down.....LOL
