Sun getting higher, bigger bass biting

There's barely a cloud in the sky over Lake Guntersville. And as the sun gets higher the bass catches are getting bigger on this relatively calm day. Cody Hollen has big bass of the day so far with a 6-pounder caught at 8:38. Rob Digh, shown in the photo above, landed a 4-8 at 9:01, and Steve Kennedy caught a 4-4 at 9:15.

As has been detailed with the tales of woe after practice, Lake Guntersville is tough in the fall. But for all the anglers flipping and punching grass, bright sunshine is big medicine.
