Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 12/17/16

It’s hard to believe but the fishing is the best I have seen for the middle of December in many years; the water temps have maintained a reasonable temperature in the mid to high 50’s and made the fish really active. I believe it’s a statement for the future and seeing this early winter activity tells me we are in for a great year in 2017.

I used only one type of bait on the water, that was the SPRO Little John XL crank bait in nasty shad color and it produced fish for me at every stop. I can only hope what I am seeing and assuming for the future is real if it is we could be back to the good old days this year. We did a couple of things; we located bait and looked for activity around the bait; from there it was very quick decision if we got bit quickly we stayed and fished if not we gave it about 20 minutes and then moved on!

The great times are near 2017 looking like the days of old and fishing this upcoming year will be great. Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to make your day on the water and day to remember. I have days and guides available to fish with you, individual trips, tag-a-long boats, corporate trips and more we do it all.
