Fishing Report for Lake Guntersville, Al 2-6-15

Since my last report things are still the same out there. We are catching fish from 7 to 10 feet of water on grass lines mixed with shell and stumps on traps, crankbaits. Out of the last 10 days I have spent 7 days on the water scouting different areas of the lake out. I did have a few trips this week and I have them all weekend. The trips earlier in the week did not produce any big bites just solid 3 to 3 ½ pound fish and I feel that with the full moon the majority of the fish were feeding at night. On my trips we would he some of my best spots without a bite, we could mark the fish but could not get them to bite. On both trips this week the last 30 to 45 min before dark the fished turned on and we had to leave the biting because of it getting dark and really cold. Yesterday I didn’t get out until around one and with the wind I didn’t get but a few bites but they were 5 lbers.

I just wanted to drop a quick report so I can get things ready this morning to head out on the water to check some new areas out for the trips this weekend and a few next week. I will post some pics in my next report.

I still have some dates available if anyone wants to get out.

Fishing Report for Lake Guntersville, Al 1-23-15

This report is for the last 4 days. I have been running several areas getting ready for the upcoming season. Monday was a grind but when I got bit it was a good one and I only boated 4 fish and all of them came on a crankbait. Tuesday was about the same as Monday but I did have a limit and 4 of them were on a crankbait and one was on a trap. On Wednesday I started to get dialed in on the new areas and boated 10 fish which came on a crankbait and trap also. On Thursday I spent the day running places I had caught fish the previous days and I had my best day all week with boating 17 fish. I caught three on a crankbait, 2 on a jerkbait and 10 on a trap. The best depths have been 7 to 10 feet. The biggest thing is finding that retrieve and when dialed in on that its game on.

I haven’t tried to target a-rig fish with all of the tournaments that are banning it. I want to have other options for my clients. I feel pretty certain that I could catch them on it but after this rain moves out I will start playing with it a bit for those who are fun fishing and want to fish it.

The pictures are of a few big ones I had this week. It may be a little hard to tell in the pictures but they were good ones and I had one giant as you can tell by my fist down her throat, lol.

I have days available if anyone wants to get out there.

Fishing Report for Lake Guntersville, Al 1-19-15

This report is over the last few weeks. The day before the big cold fronts hit was the best day I have had so far with boating around 20 that afternoon. I started around noon and quit around 4:00. Traps and crankbaits were the deal in 7 to 12 feet. The next day I got out was the Sunday after all the big cold front and it was slow and all I could get them to bite was a jig fished really slow. I could see them just sitting there on the graph but it was like force feeding them and all I caught was 4 decent ones and then I broke a trolling motor cable and had to call it quits. That kept me off the water most of last week until I could get new cables, which came in just before I had a few trips booked. On Saturday the fish bit better early and the afternoon was tough. We caught all but one before noon and even though it was a grind all day we had around 10 bites. Yesterday I spent the day looking and checking a different area of the lake out which turned out to be a bad choice with the high winds. That area of the lake was really muddy and after 5 hours of fighting the wind I called it a day and I don’t believe I even had a bite. I’m getting ready to head out now to look for some more areas in my key area where I have caught fish on every outing. I am spending most of my days right now scouting and getting ready for a busy season with the number of trips already booked.

I have days open if anyone wants to get out.

Fishing Report for Lake Guntersville, Al 1-2-15

I got out on Wednesday to start checking some areas and getting ready for the busy season ahead. I have fished at least 3 days a week since November but a lot of those days were spent crappie fishing and filling the freezer for the summer. With the water temp being between 48 and 51 degrees I had a good idea of where to start looking with the amount of grass we still have. After idling around and a little looking with the graphs I found what I was looking for in 8 to 12 feet of water on some outside grass lines close to deeper water I marked several groups of fish. The winds were light and I caught fish on a jerkbait and a trap and ended up with 17 in around 5 hours. I didn’t catch any big fish but solid 3 to 3 ½ lb fish. I know there are some big ones there because I could see them on the graph. I got back out on Thursday doing a little fishing with my son an we hit a few areas from the day before and our first bite was a really good one that looked between 5 or 6 lbs but he pulled loose at the boat on a jerkbait. We switched over to the trap and a swimbait and caught six in the next few hours and then called it a day after around 3 hours of fishing and light rain that had moved in. The fish seem to be running in groups and when you started marking them you would get bit but they are roaming the areas and you had to do some searching to keep up with them.

I am not one to complain about much but on another note the bow hunters out there need to start taking a little responsibility and properly start disposing of there kill rather than to start just dumping them on the side of the ramps to stink up the area. A lot of our revenue is from out of state people who come to fish our great fishery and when they pull up to the ramps and that is the first thing they see it starts bad publicity. Take some pride in our lake and lets take care of it a little.

Good luck
