Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 2/6/16

As I move forward in my recovery I am trying and start my journey back from my surgery and get back on the water fishing. This past week I started that process as I spent a couple of hours on the water just kind of hanging out and trying to see if I could tolerate the boat or will it make my dizziness worse . It wasn’t easy but I did ok so more to come; little steps and hope for the best and slowly try to overcome the surgery! I did catch a few fish during my short time on the water.

As winter goes so goes the fishing, if it’s cold and nasty it’s tougher than a little warmer days and warmer water. We are headed to another week of cold 20 degree nights so that will add to the toughness until we stabilize again; fishing is just OK with typical winter patterns if you find a few bites you’re doing good if not you have a long day. The game changer is that the days are getting longer that will warm the water during the sunny days and add some activity to the bass.

To me it’s still about rattle baits, chatter baits and jerk baits and during the colder days a football jig; these baits will produce during the day at some point. Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great day on the water. I have days and guides available to fish with you! We are booking for the 2016 year we can meet your fishing dates!

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 1/31/16

As I have stated too many of my friends I am going to try and start my journey back from my surgery and back on the water fishing. Today I started that process as I spent a couple of hours on the water in a friends boat just kind of hanging out and trying to see if I could tolerate the boat. It wasn’t easy but I did ok so more to come; little steps and hope for the best!

Fishing was tough for most that hit the water today, seems the cold water temps are locking up the fish. With the water temps around 46 degrees you would think that the fish are moving to the deeper edges and finding them in groups would be the ticket, not so a bite here and there so a little frustrating. It’s winter folks and the bite is slow but the quality should be good for size. Keep working jigs, jerk baits, traps and swim baits eventually it will pay off.

I am booking out for the spring with myself and my guides we have days available to fish with you, no one will treat you better!

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 1/23/16

To clarify, I am not back fishing yet due to the recent surgery, so my reports are some second hand information and some look at what I would be doing if I was back on the water and physically able to fish.

We just got through the coldest week of this winter, not only was the fishing tough but the elements was for the strong at heart for sure. There were several day this past week where the wind chill was down in the 20’s most of the day making it somewhat miserable on the water. My target had I been out there would have been the deeper water, looking for edges or points that transition into the deeper water like creeks or ditches. I believe the timing was perfect for SPRO Little John DD 70’s it has a perfect wobble for cold water and works well down to 20 ft. of water. Fishing it erratically with stops, long pulls and speed changes should have been the ticket to some good winter size bass.

I also like to slowly retrieve swim bait off the deep bottom to allow some constant contact with the bottom. The key here is slowly retrieving it, being committed to letting the bait bump off bottom structure; if you fish a heavy Picasso Lures 1 oz. or heavier swim head it will stay down pretty easy.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better!
