I have came down from Virginia to fish two years in a row. The first time was with Mike Thompson, we had a great time, he put us on fish quickly and we consistently caught fish. The same this year with Mike Gerry, one of our days, the wind was blowing 20+ Mph. But Mike didn’t let that stop him from working to find fish. Both years we have been treating with the utmost respect. If you are looking to have a good time fishing, don’t hesitate to call Mike. He will put you first and work hard to ensure you are catching fish. Thanks Mike for the excellent week of fishing!!

Great day on the lake with Mike. With all the various frontal issues, was not optimistic we'd catch any bass. Fishing was tough but Mike worked though the conditions and put us on fish. 12 bass in total....most were nice size. Recently relocated to the area. Mike willingly shared his knowledge on how to fish Guntersville Lake. Thanks again Mike. See you in February.

— John B.

Great experience! Company has been bringing clients to fish with Mike for several years now and there's reason why. This trip did not disappoint. Mike set us up with 6 boats, including his, and everyone was highly impressed! Each boat caught 20+ plus fish with several in the 4-5lb range. Great job Mike and we look forward to coming back later in the year!!

— Colton M.

Great day of fishing with Mike. He knows the lake and fishing extremely well. He’ll take you where the fish are and tell you how to fish each area you go to.

— David P.

Booked a whole day trip with Mike and it was a rewarding experience to say the least! First ten minutes into the day we were hooked up and catching fish. I learned so much more about the lake and how it sets up for this time of year. Mike is very knowledgeable and been guiding on the lake for 22 years. He knows the lake inside and out and has answers to all your questions. On a side note you’ll be riding in a 5 star decked out Cadillac(Ranger) with the new 4 stroke Mercury outboard. Talk about a comfortable day of fishing! I highly recommend you giving Mike a call and booking your trip as soon as possible the bite is getting good!

Mike took us out for a 4 hour trip that was originally planned on including my father who was given a poor prognosis after being diagnosed with colon cancer. He was too weak to make the trip and lived it through the pictures and excitement my fiancé and i had after returning to our rental house. He helped me put a smile on that mans face i won’t forget. I had a great time, learned some new techniques, and made some great memories. Mike is the real deal. Worth every penny. Thanks again.

Went with Mike Monday had a blast super nice guy. Kept us on the fish all day.

— Ryan B.

Just had a great summer morning with Mike Gerry. I've fished a lot of hot summer days for bass, and never in my life boated so many quality fish! Mike is more than willing to share his deep knowledge and experience with his customers, and he is a pleasure to fish with.

— Jeff C.

Mike knows this lake. He immediately put us on fish and stayed on ‘em the whole day. Great day on the water.


Mike is a great guide who will share knowledge and will make every effort to see that you catch fish! Had a great time! Just so people understands what kind of guide Mike is let me share with you: the morning we went out a cold front moved in, Mike put us on fish right away, even though it was 39 degrees and there were 25 mph winds! He told us he could keep us on fish, the remainder of the day and he could have! But we wanted to search for quality fish. He delivered! We caught several nice fish including one just shy of 6 pounds! Pretty impressive considering the rapid decline in weather! Well done and thanks for the tips! The next day I landed my new personal best thanks to Mikes tips! 6 pounds and 13 ounces!

— Kenzie S.

My fiancé and I booked a fishing trip with Mike Gerry. He had an amazing boat that was well taken care of. In addition to our rods he provided us with his own rods and tackle. He told us what to use and gave us helpful pointers. We caught several fish & my fiancé beat his personal record. Mike is very respectful & knowledgeable and I highly recommend taking a fishing trip with him!

— Lindsay P.

My wife and I came to Lake Guntetsville for our first trip this week, we are from Kentucky. We hired Mike Gerry for a few days to help with showing us around the lake and the local fishing tips. We are both somewhat experienced boaters and have bass fished for many years in Kentucky.
Our experience with Mike was absolutely the best, his equipment is second to none, the most modern Bass Boat (Ranger) I ever been on, Fabulous Lowrance depth finders/gps units and countless other modern tools to help with fishing.
Best of all though was Mike, his knowledge of the lake and bass fishing was off the chart. He was extremely professional, courteous, and had a great personality that made fishing fun. Both my wife and I caught many fish both days on the lake

— Russell M.

My wife and I went out with Captain Gerry in early October hoping to work them over on top water bite. Hot fall did not cooperate giving hotter than usual water temps.
We did not knock them dead, but Captain Gerry gave us 110% trying to get us on fish. When the day was over we all caught fish and had an awesome day!
I recommend this service and would most definitely book with him again!

— Jeff J.

Mike is a great guide !! Total Pro !! Highly recommend him to anyone. My brother and I couldn't be more pleased.

— Brian P.

Mike's knowledge of Guntersville is amazing. Even more, he is willing to share it and help other fishermen. I had a great, even though rainy, morning with him Friday, April 6 and he suggested I cast a whacky rigged worm he provided in one place - the picture is the results. I was getting information for my May Alabama Outdoor News Map of the Month article. Mike shared some of his best May fishing spots for it!

— Ronnie G.

We had the best day of my life fishing with Captain Mike on Thursday April 26, 2018. We caught more big fish than I have ever caught in any lake public or private. Our best 5 were probably close to 30 lbs. The weather was a little cool and it rained most of the day but we flat whacked'em.

— Kelsey D.

Excellent day guided by Captain Mike Gerry caught lots of fish and several good ones. He treats his customers with great respect. He also lives on the lake and fishes all the time so he knows where the fish are hiding. I highly suggest using Mike Gerry for catching !! ( He's the best )

— David T.

Was about to get down to Guntersville on 4/24 and fish with Capt. Mike. We caught about 20 bass overall. Had a friend miss a 6-8 pounder. It was a great trip and fun fishing with Capt. Mike. Hopefully i can make it down there again soon!

— TJ B.

We had the best time with Phillip! Couldn't ask for a better guide or trip ! The staff is very knowledgeable and respectful.. Thanks again for everything.

— Joey Deborah

I have never fished with Mike and not caught fish. The norm is to catch a dozen or more bass before 11 in the morning. Lake Guntersville is one of the best lakes in the U.S. and Mike Gerry is dialed in to what the fish are doing and how to present to them on any given day. I highly recommend a day on the water with him. You will be a better angler for it.

Mike is a great teacher for those interested in learning more about how to target largemouth bass. My company In The Spread does instructional fishing videos and has filmed with him several times. I could not be happier with the knowledge he shares and how well the productions turn out.

Whether you are a tournament angler seeking intel on the lake, a bass loving angler or a novice, Mike goes out of his way to make sure you walk away with your expectations and dreams satisfied.

My husband and I fished Lake Guntersville Monday-Wednesday not having much luck, only caught 2 bass. We booked a four hour trip with Mike Thompson for Thursday. Mike is a super nice person and did as he promised, putting us on some good fish. The weather was windy and cold, but I ended up with a nice 5 lb bass, my personal best. Mike gave us alot of great tips on lure selection and where to fish on Guntersville, he was very patient showing me how to use a bait caster. We are planning another trip with Mike Thompson in October to fish with frogs. The over all experience was great and when you book a trip, leave all your worries behind, show up and fish!!

— Vickie H.

I have fished with Mike Gerry many times. It always a great time on the water. Mike has been fishing Lake Guntersville for years and it shows. Better yet Mike will show you in and outs of fishing Lake Guntersville. I have three days booked this spring and can't wait to go. You want a good guide ? Call Mike !

— Donald G.

We had a great 2 day trip with Mike and his other guide Phillip! The bite was tough but still caught fish. This was my 2nd trip with his guide service and would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a great chance at catching some big Guntersville HAWGS! Can’t wait till next time!

— Adam H.

This was a super day fishing with Capt. Shane Ellis! He is a really great guide who Capt. Mike Gerry set me up with!! Super friendly and informative! I look forward to fishing with Fish Lake Guntersville Guide Service in the future!

— Joel H.

What an awesome time! Mike put us on fish all day and man did we catch them. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and a great conversationalist while we were casting away. If the fish weren't biting our baits, he'd open up his treasure trove and give us some that they would bite. We fished spots that I would never have thought would hold bass. My son and I learned so much on this trip.

His boat is comfortable and roomy enough for three. He operates it in a very safe and professional manner befitting his status as a Certified Captain. I highly recommend his guide service if you want to fish Guntersville.

— Scott A.

It windy and cold but we still caught bass. Capt Mike Thompson was so nice and eager to answer any questions we had. We will do this again!!!!!

— Sarah A.

Had a great 3-days with Capt. Mike. He was knowledgable, capable and patient. Worked hard to keep us on the fish. Boat was first class and fully equipped, tackle was of high quality and in good working order.

— Mike M.

Mike is second to none on Lake Guntersville. We were on fish quick and made moves that produced even more bites. A great day all around!

— John S.

I had a great time fishing with Mike Gerry! He has the latest equipment and is very knowledgeable about Lake Guntersville. We caught several big bass. I cant wait to fish with him again! Thanks, Mike

— Josh M.
