Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 8/27/16

As it has seemed to be the case the last few years the end of August seems to really slow down and if it’s possible to get even worse than it been, fishing slowed once again last week. I just have to believe it just a timing thing and it will pick up quickly but based on this past week fishing was really slow.

As I have stated, there is not near the thick grass we have had other years so the fall should pick up quickly as soon as we get a little cooler weather to break up some of the grass beds and push the fish out of the cover. We did spend most of the week looking for frog fish to help folks with the up-coming SPRO frog tournament; the bites seem to be on slow worm presentations, tight-Line swim jigs and small 6 to 10 ft. running SPRO Baby Little John crank baits.

The fall is coming quickly, it won’t be long before the bite will be really good; come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great day on Guntersville. I have the best licensed and experienced guides on the lake; we fish with great sponsor baits and spend time training on Lowrance electronics we can help you with your electronics.

Guntersville Lake 27 August 2016 –  Past two weeks have been all over the place, one day you can catch them and the next you have to work just to get a limit.  With that said the best pattern lately has been early morning top water mainly Catch 5 Big N’ Swim Jigs, pop-r’s and some buzzbait action 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… I look for the punching and frog patterns to really ramp up over the next two weeks as conditions should improve for these tactics.  Make sure you are drinking plenty of water and using sunscreen.  Water Temps are 83 to 87 degrees.  The ledge bite is fading some, we found some active schools but there lots of shad and other bait for them to feed on it is making that bite a tough one,  it 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. On a side note, for those who run Hydro Wave it help us late last week to run a delayed schooling at a low volume.   We are taking reservations for September 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”

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.
