Fishing Report update Guntersville – 5/9/15
Report Date: May 9, 2015 | Lake:
My last report was posted 5/3/15. I’m running trips everyday, the fishing report from May 3rd is still the same today a week later.
I’ll repost for review now….and add a few comments for the update.
Catching fish off of drops on crank baits, Carolina Rigs, Swim baits and jigs in 12 – 20 feet of water. We have hit some really large groups this past week. We will catch 15 – 25 fish in a 30 – 45 minute period then they really slow down. It is just a matter of time through the day another big group will fire back up.
A few days the catching slowed down a bit, but we are still catching a lot of fish, and some really good ones. Current is key to the activity and the last few days they have really not pulled very much water. When the water starts to move again with the current picking back up its lights out and a best five about 25 pounds can be boated in about 30 minutes. Two weeks ago one of my clients caught a 4 pounder and a 3 pounder on the same cast using a crank bait.
Here are Fridays results with the guys I had out: Four 20 pound bags caught amongst us. The best 5 fish bag would be pushing 30 pounds. When the water is not moving it gets really slow and we have to work a lot harder to catch a few. Then the water starts to move again and it gets exciting. Get hooked up, pay attention to watching behind your fish as you bring it to the boat, you could see 10 – 12 fish following your catch to the boat.
I am now booked up for the month of May. I even added some evening 4 hours trips to full day trips to accommodate some more people. I’m booking trips now for June – July. Call Me and lets get you booked NOW if anyone wants to get in on some of the action.
