Best guides for Guntersville, AL?

Recommended Posts

Hey Folks-

Trying to put together a weekend trip this March for Guntersville, and looking to get with a great guide that knows the lake well....

Can anyone make any suggestions?

Thanks-

BEN

There's a TV show in Nashville called Wood's and Water. They did a show about Guntersville and their guide was called the spinnerbait kid. He's the only one I've heard of.

I just looked at the picture gallery on his website and found a picture of my neighbor holding a 5# bass.  I'll ask him what he thought about the guide and get back to you.

Spinnerbait kid is good but the most experienced is

Troy Jens.    I highly recommend Troy!

Many of my clients have also used Tim Chandler and Troy Jens for trips to Guntersville. Troy, last I heard, was getting out of guiding and has a new job working with kids. Just from the good stories I have heard from my clients about trips with Tim on Guntersville he would be my choice if I was going to hire a guide.   http://www.mildrillafishing.com/

Troy Jens is still guiding but is involved with kids and doing a wonderful job with both guiding and kids.

He is a genuinely good person.

Yep. Bad info on my part. Ben, Troy would be a great choice also.

Last year on the BassResource.com Roadtrip I fished with him

for two days, the first with ghoti the second with Glenn and Keri.

I recommend you find someone else.

Here's another vote for Whirly Burley's idea.

I met this fellow and talked with him at length,

but did not fish with him. My impression was

VERY favorable: http://www.spinnerbaitkid.com/

Here is my two cents worth.. I have fished with both Tim Chandler and Alex Davis (spinnerbait kid). I had a very good time with both and both will put you on fish. I was looking for patterns and types of locations for a Tx with both. I found that Alex did a very good job and he answered every question with no bull. He offered tips and went out of his way to ensure that I had a good time. I had one of the best days on the water with him. Our best 5 easy could break 25# but we only caught one fish at each location and shook the rest off. our total for the day was 20# caught. I did have three days of 19-23# on those spots and spots just like where we were. Tim and I had around 15-16# and that is not to bad either. For the money I would go with Alex but you cant go wrong with Tim either. I was on the water the day Troy called it quits-fulltime. I think that he is still taking out clients that had certificates but not many others. I heard that he was not to shabby on the water.

The Spinnerbait Kid is a really cool guy who knows what he is talking about. He will def put you on some awesome fish. Ive met him a few times last year on the water. Really nice guy.

Also Reed Montgomery of Reeds Guide Service (205) 787-5133. He has helped me out a few times getting ready for tourneys. Also very knowledgable. You cant really go wrong with either. They will both put you on good fish!!

Good luck and have fun!!
