Lake Guntersville with Wolverine

Recommended Posts

My partner and I planned a redfish trip in Houma, LA. over a year ago (another story)   Since we weren't going to drive 20 plus hours from MD all in one trip,  we wanted to stop and fish.   We decided on Guntersville and called a guide.  He said he couldn't,  and recommended we call Derek Remitz.

Yep,  this Derek Remitz.  http://www.bassmaster.com/anglers/derek-remitz

He is taking a break from the Elite Series and now guides full time on Guntersville.  He is a proud, new dad and talked about his little man a lot.

We fished with him on a Sunday (on the way down) and Saturday (on the way home)  What a blast.  We fish the tidal Potomac River and this was different for us.  The fish weren't big right now as the weather is just too warm and the fall pattern hasn't started.  We also both got a spotted bass,  which neither of us had caught before.

 He was a blast to fish with and caught on quick to our sense of humor and joined in the fun.   He is not pretentious despite his accomplishments.  Just like fishing with a friend.  Both evenings at the end,  he had a few beers in the parking lot and hung out for a while and talked.  He knew we were headed to Louisiana and mentioned that he'd love a redfish filet.  We just happened to catch a few.  After talking about it,   I think we have him talked in a redfish trip to Louisiana.  

He recommends fishing Guntersville in May.   We'll most likely never make it back but,  if you're thinking of a trip to Alabama,  book Wolverine.
