Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 5-21-16

This past week along with the month of May has been some of best fishing this year; yes the numbers are not where they were in past years but this past week was really good for size and numbers compared to others weeks and months so far this year. It’s different and certainly challenging but persistence is paying off and the fish are active enough that it is really a lot of fun.

I have changed up baits a little this past week working a ½ oz. Punisher “Hail Mary” rigged with a Missile Bait D-Bomb in 6 to 15 ft. of water. We are also still fishing my faithful Tight-Line swim jig in ½ oz. with a Missile Bait Shock Wave Swim Bait as my main two baits. I am still working to find a consistent deep crank bait bite as this has not really evolved this year as it has other times on a daily basis. We are catching some fish on the SPRO Little John crank Bait but as stated it’s not everywhere.

Come fish with me no will treat you better; there is still some great fishing ahead the summer time heat is not here yet and this will keep fishing really good until the water really warms up and the grass thickens. I have guides and days available to fish with you; we fish with great sponsor baits, Duckett rods, Vicious Line, Punisher Lures, Picasso Lures products and more.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 5/14/16

The increase in the last week from catches to bigger fish was very noticeable, numbers were up size was good and bites increased daily. A definite pick up all week long, hopefully this will increase again and the long term bite and activity will show great improvements over this next week and on into the rest of the year.

I think the warming air and water temperatures will group the fish up and some of the more traditional spots and locations on the lake will also show improvement. Although we mainly caught fish on Tight-Line swim jigs rigged with Missile Bait shock Wave swim baits there was also been a worm bite and a deep crank bait bite that started to evolve over this past week. The big worm bite was in a little deeper water area along with the SPRO DD 70 Little John crank bait that also produced over the week. I believe the deep bite will be very strong in the next week as we continue to get more heat.

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 licensed USCG guides available to fish with you. We fish with great sponsor baits like Navionics, Lowrance, Picasso, Duckett, and more.
