Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 2/18/17

The up and down weather change with one day being cold and windy the next being warm and rain seems to have affected to a same degree the fishing. We had a day or two where the fishing was good and then the weather would change and the bite would go away with the weather swings.

Although this is somewhat common in the winter it appears to me to be more accentuated this winter as the fish acted like they were tied to a light switch this past week with the on/off switch being drastic. When we did catch them we are still fishing SPRO Aruka Shad rattle baits, Missile bait new “48” stick bait and Tight-Line swim jigs rigged with Missile bait swim baits. Fish were very spot-oriented and not all areas were created equal.

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. March is sizing up to be a great month; I believe there will be an early spawn the grass will not totally be gone this year because of the warm temperatures and March should be one of our better months. We fish with great sponsor products Vicious Line, Navionics mapping, Lowrance Electronics, Ranger Boats and more.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 2-11-17

After the FLW left the lake for their next stop, it appears to me that the numbers of fish in the 4 to 6 lb. range is probably down and it will take some time to get us back where we were with solid fish in that range over time.  I am encouraged as I have stated before about the numbers of small fish and hopefully this will help us going forward.

The lake is still fishing pretty good for this time of year with the water temperature in the low 50’s the bites seem pretty consistent for this time in mid-February. Missing is a no-no and will cost you but if you work at it keep your bait wet you have a chance every day to have some fun. You just can’t judge a great day the way we use too, but its fishing and it’s always fun.

I spent most of last week fishing three different baits, Picasso chatter baits, SPRO Aruka shad, and Missile bait “The 48” stick bait. We mainly stayed in 4 to 9 ft. water looking for grass and structure. I believe the fish are doing some staging as we approach March and should see them spawn early in March.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work hard to see you have a great day on the water. I have days and guides available to fish with you. If you’re looking for a way to entertain some corporate customers; fishing is a great way to get them together and have some fun. We fish with the best sponsor products; Lowrance Electronics, Navionics charts, Vicious Line, Duckett fishing products and more.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 2/4/17

With the FLW Tour and some of the best anglers in the world on Lake Guntersville I thought I would give you some facts to digest for the first two days of the tournament. After 3 days of practice one media day and 2 days of fishing the tournament has narrowed the field down to 20 fishermen and the winner will come out of the top 20 anglers.

The results for me this past week for my own fishing had some ups and downs, days where the fished moved some we had some good results; other days we struggled so a mixed bag of results on my part. Let’s examine the first two days of tournament results based on the FLW anglers on the lake as we speak.

The top 2 anglers after day 2 are the only bags that have averaged over 20 lbs. per day. The day 1 leader Jay Kendrick with over 25 lbs. had his bridge pattern fall apart on day 2 weighing in just 1 fish and missing the top 20 cut by 6 places. After the top 2 we have 7 anglers averaging 17 to 18 lbs. per day; 11 anglers averaging 15 to 16 lbs. p/day; 23 anglers with 12 to 13 lbs. p/day; 32 anglers with 10 to 11 lbs. p/day and the balance with 2 to 9 lbs. p/day or less. Break that even further there are 22 anglers that weighed in the limit of 5 fish per day and 27 anglers averaging 4 fish per day. Granted these are keepers having to be over 15 inches to be brought to the scale. Some averages to digest, this means that 15 anglers averaged 15 to 20 lbs. p/day; 47 anglers averaged 10 to 14 lbs. p/day; and 69 anglers averaged 5 to 9 lbs. p/day with a few that did not weigh in a fish. These are a quick overview of the numbers on my part I did not do any great mathematical analysis just enough to give a look.

These are the facts as they stand after 2 days hope this gives you a view of how the lake is fishing.
