I am not aware of any laws that prohibit hunting from a layout boat anywhere on Lake Guntersville. However, anytime you want information you can call the Alabama DNR Law Enforcement office and ask to speak to an officer. They have always been very helpful to me, I just spoke to them two days ago. Also you can contact the Feds as they have offices in Alabama as well. John Rawls, Special Agent, in Millbrook, Al is a great resource.
Going Hunting without a trained retriever is like going on a honeymoon without a bride!
