I can't speak for Guntersville as I haven't fished it recently, but one thing to remember is once bream have established their bed they normally won't stray far from it and are aggressive about protecting their individual "nests".
The cooler temps will probably make them a little less agressive, but established beds will still have fish if they haven't been picked off by other fishermen. Just go slow and have a wide arsenal of baits.
Artificial: Keystone minnows (or similar like the Judge minnow), small "beetle spin" type lures, and maybe a squirrel tail jig or two. I never have had much luck with the squirrel tails, but have heard from too many folks to discount them for bream.
Live bait: red worms and crickets. Especially the red worms for shellcrackers.
Of course, anything else you have ever had luck catching bream on should be handy as well.
If you decide to drive over and try I wish you good luck and let us know how you do.
Good luck and good fishin'
