There's been a lull in Lake Guntersville bass fishing every day of this tournament from about 10 a.m. until noon. It feels different today because of the windy, cloudy weather, which we haven't seen the previous three days. And the lull is accentuated by the fact there are only 10 anglers on the water today.
"I don't know what I'm going to do the rest of the day," Hank Cherry said recently on "Bassmaster LIVE." You could probably repeat that quote for the other nine anglers.
"Everything is different," said Chris Zaldain, referring to the weather conditions. "The wind is ripping. The trolling motor is having a hard time staying in the water."
Zaldain said that as he bailed out of the spot where he's caught "13 or 14 of my 15" fish weighed-in the previous three days.
Maybe it is truly different today. Or maybe this is just another late morning Lake Guntersville bass siesta, which has been ending about now.
