The bream will be off bed by then, if they aren't already, so you may have a little harder time but you should still be able to catch enough to have a good time. The millfoil will be matting at the top of the water, so may areas that were good during the bedding activity will be impossible to get to.
I don't know if the squirrel tail jigs will still be catching them so you will probably want to make sure and take some crickets and red worms. Keystone minnows and popping bugs may still be working early. I don't know when the willow flies hatch in Guntersville, about the 1st of June on Wheeler last year, but if they are when you go, just grab a bunch off of the trees overhanging the water and use them. The fish will be smaller most of the time, but the action is usually hot and heavy and you will probably come up with a bass or two from time to time.
