Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 4/15/17

With Easter upon us and the best weather of the spring on our front door the fishing is finally showing some great signs of the best time of year. Yes the fishing picked up at the end of this week to a point where I can honestly say I had my best day of the 2017 year. Not necessarily the number of big fish but the number of good fish.

With the lake turning the corner the fish we caught were all inside of 10 ft. in depth the key was just patience and not missing the bites. We really picked up on SPRO Baby Little John square bills, they seemed to be a great choice and caught several good fish. Just as a word of caution you can’t horse a fish on a square bill, the hooks are small and letting the fish tire is much better and you will put more fish in the boat. We also got bit on Missile Bait D-Stroyers, D-Bombs and Shock Wave swim baits rigged on Tight-Line swim jigs or Picasso Under-Spins.

If you’re looking to get on the water this next 6 weeks is staged to be the best of the season so far; I have guides and days available to fish with you. No one will treat you better we are all licensed USCG Captains with years of experience on Lake Guntersville.  We fish with great sponsor products, Ranger Boats, Lowrance Electronics, Yamaha Motors Vicious Line and Duckett rods and reels and more.
