Canterbury “fishing by the seat of my pants”

Scott Canterbury just pulled a 2-pound largemouth out of thick grass, as you’ll see in the photo from Steve Bowman.

He started the morning throwing a frog near Goose Pond Landing. After about an hour of no bites he told us, “I’m just fishing by the seat of my pants.”

Canterbury has a ton of experience on Guntersville, living in nearby Odenville, but perhaps his ability to avoid fishing history accounts for his success here this week.

He caught the previously mentioned 2-pounder on a NetBait Dagger creature bait. “The big thing is it needs to be heavy enough to get through the grass, but you don’t want it too heavy so it falls quickly to the bottom,” he said.
