With Christmas passing it is time spend my days scouting for the big girls of the big G for all of the spring and early summer trips. If last year is any indication of how this year is going to be than it will be another great year without any days away from the lake from January through early July. Last year during that time I run trips every single day of those months without a day off and even as busy as it was ,I still made time for everyone that couldn’t book a full day due to it already being booked by offering to carry them out when the full day trip was finished. I would meet them and fish till close to dark just to get everyone on fish and to get them pointed in the right direction.

I would like to say thanks to all of 2015’s clients and special thanks to all the ones who have already booked their days for 2016 as it will be another awesome year of fishing and if the weather stays like it has been it should be a much milder winter and this years spring bit should be on fire.

Baits that I would defiantly have are crankbaits diving 2-4 feet and 8 to 14 feet and as always a good selection of rattle trap type baits. Last year the red eye shad in 1\2 to 3\4 oz. was a huge player along with the ever popular swimbait and a chatterbait. I also feel that the jig will be a huge player this spring.

As soon as all the holidays are over the lake will become my home as it is already stuck on my brain and wondering what all the rain has done. I have seen several pictures on Facebook and things aren’t looking good. Just by driving around the lake is still extremely muddy and the water is still up. There is a lot of debris floating around so keep a careful eye out if you get to go. They are still pulling around 140,000 to 150,000 cfs which is a lot of current and it will have some fish grouped up on current related spots.

With 2016 being my 16th year of guiding full time and having the longest running guide service on Lake Guntersville I feel I can make you next trip a great success. There will be some photos coming soon.
