Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 1/21/17

I must admit this warming trend has been very unusual even for the deep-south in the middle of January. The water temperatures are in the high 50’s and even some 60 degree water, with all this the bass are fat and looking very much like they could jump on the bed any day. The last time we had this warm of a winter as I recall was 2007 and the grass got so thick in early March that the ability to fish the lake became real limited because of it. We need some normal weather to get back to the traditional bite of February and March.

Fishing seems up and down with not a lot of numbers but when you catch a fish its good size and thick looking like footballs; the number of bites is not great but you can hang a monster. I spent most of the week fishing SPRO Aruka shad rattle baits, Picasso Shock Blade chatter baits, Tight-Line swim jigs and Missile Bait swim baits rigged on the jig. The fish were hard to come by but as I said the size was encouraging. If there was a key for me it was finding bait balls, when I did I found some bites!

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great time on the water. If this weather continues it’s going to turn on like a light switch so being on the water could really pay some great results. I have days and guides available to fish with you; we fish with great sponsor products; Lowrance electronics, Navionics charts, T&H Marine Products, Vicious Fishing, Duckett rods and reels and more. A new sponsor for me is Python electronics mounts you ought to see this front bow mount, it is the strongest most secure mount I have ever used.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 1/13/17

On my way to the Huntsville Boat show, so if you’re coming to the show stop by the Dawson Boat Center display and lets catch up!

Fishing this week slowed at the beginning of the week as the extreme cold we had for about 6 days straight really slowed the bite; by the end of the week though fishing really turned back on. There has been several really big fish caught this week my biggest was 6.13 but there were several 9’s caught making the old heart pump with great enthusiasm.

The bite for me has been on SPRO McRip jerk baits in their cell mate color along with SPRO Aruka Shad rattle baits and Missile Bait new 48 stick bait. Slow presentation has been the key even with the rattle bait just trying to slowly tick the grass and cause a reaction. Right now it is typical winter fishing with bites being mainly good solid fish and requiring you to use patience and not miss your bites. As always on Guntersville some green grass around always seems to help you find the fish.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great time on the water; we fish with great sponsor products; Navionics charts, Lowrance fish finders, Vicious Line, Duckett reels and rods. It just doesn’t get much better than my sponsor line up! I have guides and days available to fish with you, call now let’s get your dates locked down for 2017.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 1/7/17

My report will still be somewhat second hand as I spent the holidays over dosing on college football and working to get the little things worked out on my new 2017 Ranger. As always my new Ranger is for sale with a pick up date of November 2017; it’s always sold in February with the pick-up date so if you’re interested we can talk more just let me know.

Back to fishing it appears we have seen a big movement to the deeper water as the early day bite seems much deeper than it has been, when the day warms on the sunny days there is still a lot of movement feeding in the shallow water. This time of year for me is generally all about SPRO McRip jerk baits. Tight-Line football jigs and Missile bait soft plastics, there has been good results on the new Missile Bait 48 which is their version of a stick bait developed to be dead stick with very light weights or even weight-less. It’s a little different with some slow change movement that has been very enticing for the patient dead stick fisherman. Winter time is very much about slow presentation and this new Missile Bait 48 will be a great change up for the colder water.

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; 2017 will be a great year it’s time to lock down your fishing dates on Lake Guntersville now! We fish with great sponsor baits like Duckett, Vicious, Picasso and more.
