Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 4/23/16

This past week on Guntersville was challenging for sure, endless tournaments as always and tough fishing; in all the years I have fished Guntersville this April has proven to be the most challenging over many years. If the bass are there they are well hidden and not making much of a move at all to the shallows. I believe the spawn is over and the numbers are just way down and we are in for a long haul to return to greatness.

Having said that we did have a few days with some fair catches, you just can’t miss your opportunities and on the days we caught fish we had very few misses. My bait selection has really become limited to just a few baits, Missile bait D-Stroyers and D-Bombs and SPRO Baby Little John crank baits, and lastly Tight-Line swim jigs rigged with Missile bait Shock Wave swim baits.

We fished many types of patterns from lay downs and rocky banks to humps, river ledges and creek beds; come fish with me I have guides and days available to fish with you.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 4/16/16

Well if you didn’t like 30 mph winds out of the NNW you got to experience them out of the ESE; I am sure it made you feel better or maybe not! The past 3 weeks we have just been hammed by strong winds and spending day fishing was challenging because of it. Sure we caught fish but it was some of the most aggravating times on the water I have spent in quite a while.

The bass are still very much staging waiting for the water to get a little warmer I don’t believe we have seen the best of the spawn yet, and because of it bites are still at a premium and missing can really hurt your day. We spent most of the week fishing 3 to 6 feet of water with some spotted moves to the deeper water checking for post spawn fish. If the best of the spawn is over Guntersville is in trouble, I have just got to think we are behind but this week should really make a difference with the weather warming up considerable.

Baits for the week have not changed a whole lot with Tight-Line Swim jigs, leading the way with most of the bites rigged with Missile Bait Shock Wave swim baits; we did add SPRO crank baits to the everyday baits with their Baby Little John DD 60 catching several fish in 7 to 9 ft. of water.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better, I have days and guides available to fish with you!

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 4/9/16

The past week was a weather challenge for sure, as we struggled every day with strong winds and tough conditions all week long; fishing had its ups and downs with some decent results and some not so! There was no doubt that staying on a bite proved to be a tough request even with power poles the 30 mph winds made it difficult.

The good news for me was the Tight-Line swim jig bite was the key as we caught several fish on swim jigs rigged with Missile bait Shock Wave swim baits; we mainly fished their ½ oz. in shad color with good results. We also fished Tight-Line football jigs, Missile bait D-Stroyers and D-Bombs all producing bites at different times during the week. I personally believe that the bass are still staging and not really moved up in big numbers as we caught several fish that had very little color.

Come fish with me, no one will treat you better; we have guides and days available to fish with you. We fish with great sponsor baits, Duckett rods, Vicious Line and more.
