Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 8/20/16

It appears to me that the week of overcast days and rain, did little to help the fishing; in fact the best time we had on the water was when the sun came out more towards the midday; strange for sure but somewhat typical as the month of August progresses to late August. The good news is the water temperature seems to have dropped some; there is icky dead looking grass appearing in many areas of the lake and this is generally a good sign for the future or the end of August.

I always start to see great improvement when the shorter days start to cool the water temperature; the best of the fall is close. Spent a lot of time looking for the SPRO frog bite and I must say there is frog action already indicating that the fall top water bite will get better shortly. My Tight-Line swim jig appears to have dropped this past week, maybe we will see that pick back up also. Work slow, look for bait fish and work an area thoroughly when you get a bite as the fish are grouped up; so when you find them don’t leave them.

Come fish with me I have days and guides available to fish with you; no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great time on the water. I have licensed USCG experienced guides and we can meet most requests to fish when needed.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 8/14/16

You would think with the overcast skies most of the week especially in the morning that the bite would have been pretty good, unfortunately it picked up only when the sun seemed to come out. Go figure; but that’s the way it was.

I had one really good day this week and the others seemed a little slower especially if the clouds extended into the day. The good news was the SPRO frog bite is really starting to pick up especially on the days where we had some sun shine. The best bite for me was still the Tight-Line swim jig rigged with Missile bait Shock wave swim baits! Our best day found them grouped up on a point and we really slayed them when we got into it. The worm bite is still there and for sure some hit and miss patterns from 10 to 25 feet.

August has been cooler than July and if it continues we should really see the benefits of the cooling water over the next few weeks; come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great time on the water. I have days and guides available to fish with you.

Guntersville Lake 10 August 2016 – We had a lot of fun this past week doing some filming and fishing with clients and catching so good fish with our friends from Pro-Z Baits…the Bass are moving into the grass throughout the lake, I look for the punching and frog patterns to really ramp up over the next two weeks as conditions should improve for these tactics.    With that said the best pattern for is early morning top water mainly pop-r’s along the back channel grass, Mussel Crawler Jigs from Tightline Jigs worked along grass lines on the main channel and Punching D-Bombs with a 1 ounce tungsten.  Best frog action for us was on Pro-Z, T-Fritz Popping Frogs and on the regular Hollow Body’s in thicker Grass… Make sure you are drinking plenty of water and using sunscreen.  Water Temps are 85 to 91 degrees.  The ledge bite is fading some, but should remain good until fall, it’s mainly all about timing…they are not eating all day, but if you stick with it you can catch them.  We are taking reservations for August through October for Frog, Ledge and flipping/punching grass lessons…If you want to catch fish on Guntersville…I have days and USCG Licensed guides available…now is the time to make your plans with a full time Professional USCG Licensed/Insured guides.  As always, we supply all fishing gear including Duckett Rods, LEW’s Reels, lures, and drinking water at no additional cost you.  We offer a Military Discount and unmatched dedication to making your trip successful and enjoyable. “Let’s go fish’ in”
