Friday Alabama fishing report

From Guntersville, Captain Mike Gerry reports the Spro Frog bite has already turned on, one of the earliest he has seen in this topwater action, which usually doesn’t gear up until October. Gerry says the moss beds have lots of potholes in them this month, giving the bass good ambush points to attack the weedless frogs.

He suggests moving rapidly through your favorite spots until you find active fish so long as water temperature remains warm; www.fishlakeguntersvilleguideservice.com.
