Guntersville Lake's Winter Warming Trends Bring Big Largemouth Bass Shallow!Author: Captain Reed Montgomery | Posted: 01/03/2012
<p>As the year 2011 came to an end, air temperatures on north Alabama's Guntersville Lake were on a roller coaster ride. In late December it was 70 degrees one week, and then the daytime highs struggled to even top 50 degrees another week.
Just like the rising and falling air temperatures, the lake's water temperatures were up and down each week as well. Never dipping into those dreaded wintertime 40 degree water temperatures, but hitting real close, in the low 50's.
As the month of January gets underway the coldest air of the early winter season is now upon us. Just a few days after New Years Day morning lows in Alabama were in the "teens" with daytime highs at 40 degrees!
But only for a few days. With the weekend of January 7 & 8 predicted highs are to be in the mid-to-upper 60's... then its time to go fishing again!
Not only are these winter warming trends much more comfortable to the Guntersville Lake wintertime angler, but again after a few warm, sunny days (and warm nights in the 50's) and these warm sunny conditions, will bring up the lakes shallow water temperatures a few degrees.
Inducing otherwise sluggish largemouth bass to perk up and feed! But first, you have got to be there to even have a chance at catching them!
With Spring not to far away its time to consider booking a "trophy bass fishing trip" to Alabama's largest, man made reservoir, Guntersville Lake!
