It was an epic day on the lake! I caught my Lake Guntersville PB fish using a fishing lure I made for Gambler Lures for swimbait fishing. Alabama rigs are great lures this time of year for cold water and I stumbled on a pattern for fishing grass on shallow submerged points with small swimbaits. The bass were were keyed on shad and I would use the swimbaits to mimic bait balls in creeks and at the mouths of creeks. The way I fish an umbrella rig is really more like a spinnerbait. I use a shorter fishing rod and a smaller rig so that I can cast it more accurately and fish it all day with less fatigue and more efficiency. I’m so stoked I finally caught a GIANT bass out on Lake Guntersville – definitely my PB and it made it especially cool to do it with a homemade jig.
