Fishing Report - December 15th, 2014
Smith lake, Alabama by Mike Walker

Things are way different this year, or topwater bite is not happening and the majority of the fish are already deep. This time last year we had the best fall and early winter topwater action in 10 years. How things change from one year to the next. Most fish are between 40-80 feet and the majority are between 50-60 feet deep. The bites good, fish are grouped up hard and when you find them your going to hook up. Live bait between 4-6" is working best.  I'm fishing middle to upper ends of the lake that have deep water around.  This is the time of year some of our biggest fish are caught. If you can take the cold, usually the reward is good. Numbers have been good over this past week. Checkout our website for more info www.fishing24-7guideservice.com

ABOUT THIS LAKE

With five past world record spotted bass catches, you can see why the lure of big spots brings anglers from all over the country to Lewis Smith Lake. Plus, the Gulf Coast strain of striped bass here often weighs in at more than 20 pounds. In fact, a monster 32 lb.-8 oz. striped bass caught on the lake is an Alabama record and many anglers feel there are 40- to 50-pound stripes just waiting to strike.

Lewis Smith Lake – usually called Smith Lake – is located in Cullman, Walker, and Winston Counties about an hour north of Birmingham or south of Huntsville on I-65. It is a beautiful, deep, clear lake with dozens of feeder streams, winding bays, and sloughs. Steep bluffs cradle much of the lake, with water depths dropping as deep as 60 or 70 feet just a few yards offshore. Hundreds of coves along the 500 miles of shoreline on this 21,000-acre lake provide anglers ample points to search for spotted bass.
