Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 12/3/16

With me being in-between boats my report is going to be second hand; I expect my 2017 Ranger boat to be ready no later than this Monday. Fishing however is becoming typical winter type patterns with some big bites, with bites being limited but size being the kicker to a good day.  The fish seem to be in various depths with the bite being deeper early in the day and shallower as the day warms from the December sun.

Most folks are fishing slowly, with Tight-Line jigs, big Punisher one oz. type spinner baits and SPRO rattle baits (Aruka Shad) as the shallower bait for up in the warming part of the day. Depth appears to be in the 15 to 20 feet range early in the day then 6 to 10 feet as the day progresses and warms. The big females are moving on up in the day as they normally do as we progress further into winter.

With all the small fish we caught this fall, I really expect 2017 to be much better than last year; at least it’s shaping up that way. I am booking for 2017 now; I am also selling Christmas gift certificates. If you’re looking to set up some of your customers with some great entertainment bass fishing is a great way to do it. Come fish with me no one will treat you better!

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 11/19/16

After a temperature change and the water cooling along with the weather the bass seem to be acting a little more like traditional late fall fishing with the mid-day bite much better than the early bite. It appears the bass are located more in the deeper water early in the day and moving up with the warmth of the sun during the mid-day.

Once again if you find the bait you find the bass, it’s just a little later in the day than last week. I also think baits have made some change to adjust to the later bite with moving baits while their feeding being key and slower baits early in the day like SPRO jerk baits and Tight-Line jigs. The fast moving baits we used were Missile Bait Shock Wave swim baits, and SPRO Little John XL crank baits. Early the fish were deeper and later in the day moved up to the shallower water.

We are seeing a lot of activity to get 2017 booked for many folks it’s time to get your dates set up; come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great day on the water. Looking for the perfect Christmas gift, I sell Christmas gift certificates good for one year from issue date, I only sell a limited amount of these every year,  a great gift for your avid fisherman for Christmas.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 11/12/16

I believe it’s safe to say that the bass on Guntersville are making some location changes to more traditional winter type spots. This past week my spots didn’t hold up at all and I had to find some deeper water and different types of bottom structure to find the fish. We had to move to 10 to 14 type depths showing some movement off the shallow fall pattern we have seen for the last few weeks.

Baits remained mostly the same though as we still fished SPRO Little John XL crank baits as probably our best bait at least for some size. We also went back to Tight-Line swim jigs rigged with Missile Bait Shock Wave swim baits, I found that even though this was not my best bait all week it did give me a good change up for catching fish. We also still worked Picasso Lures buzz baits over grass early with mixed results but it did produce some bites and they were generally pretty good fish.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you enjoy your day on the water. I have days and guides available to fish with you; we are booking for 2017 now, get your corporate dates set your personal fishing days ready to go and we will serve you well.
