This is one deadly pattern for bass in May on Lake Guntersville and it showed off for the Major League Fishing Tournament on the lake for the winner of over 100k!!! Ledge fishing or offshore fishing played a role for a good portion of the top 10 tournament finishers and in this video I will show you how to do fish deep for bass, what lures, and what rod and reel setups you need!

There is 1 thing that is a huge fishing cheat you never want to forget when trying to catch summer bass – either fish them super fast and try to trigger them with crankbaits, big swimbaits, spoons, and reaction style fishing lures; or fish them super slow with soft plastic Texas Rigged Worms, Ned Rigs, drop shot rigs, Neko Rigs, and all the finesse techniques you can think off. The fish seem to either be in one mood or the other when fishing in summer and that means the techniques you use to catch bass need to mimic that mood. Warmer water temps and clearer water leads to more stable fishing so once you figure out a fishing pattern you can stick with it but when it comes to lakes with a lot of fishing pressure or boat traffic you may have to adapt your approach and cheat a little with more finesse style lures or highly reaction oriented baits.

A Ned Rig jig and a soft plastic is a perfect technique to catch spring bass moving up to spawn. The versatility of the lure really makes it shine and it’s finesse features allow it to catch fish in nearly any conditions – clear water, deep water fishing, skipping docks…it’s one of the most adapatable spring fishing techniques that works for any angler. There’s a little trick I figured out that I don’t even think the pros are doing on Lake Guntersville where you flip a ned rig on light action fishing rod like a spinning rod to holes in the grass – you need clear water but basically you’re triggering spawning and staging bass using those sandy areas as pathways. It catches fish and any angler can do it – it’s easy!

Want to catch bass in the summer heat!!?!? In this vid we reveal summer fishing tips on Lake Guntersville for catching big bass in clear water out deep ledge fishing. We walk through step by step with tips and techniques as well of the ledge fishing process – how to find fish out deep using your contour map and sonar, what fish look like on the Lowrance HDS LIVE, and various techniques for catching bass in deeper clear water. Two main lures really showed off – a wobble head jig and a mag ned rig jig with a large stick bait. I’m all about revealing the real fishing process and showing what the pros don’t always want you to know and that’s what we do right here in regards to summer fishing and specifically ledge fishing for deep water big bass.

We went to Lake Guntersville to go fishing and stopped at GTO and Paul the owner revealed to us the most realistic fishing lure I have ever seen! It is a jig angler’s dream when it comes to crawfish!!! Paul also gave us a winter fishing report of the lake and recommended some fishing lures and baits including Alabama Rigs, jigs, and swimbaits to use to catch big bass in cold water. We went out fishing and used some of Paul’s tips but ended up having to get insanely finesse to catch fish using a Mega Bass Vision 110 jerkbait around points and in creek pockets where we found bait balls and shad.

If you get the chance visit GTO right next to Lake Guntersville and tell Paul Mikeybalzz sent you!!!

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.

I hung out with Jacob Wall (FLW FISHING PRO) and we talked about insane chatterbait tweaks and mods that anyone can do and we walk thru a discussion of different ways to tweak the lure, different colors to use and why when fishing for bass. How do you tweak your chatterbait? What kid of DIY mods do you do to catch more fish? Drop them down in the comments box!
