Where to Start?

Catching a fish is not a issue on Gville but catching the Big Ones can still cause you a HeadAche. This past week we did corporate trips to pre tournament trips just a busy week.

During the tournament practice trip we had a great time cutting up all day and locating some big uns on the Lowrance HDS’s (we do offer sonar training ) and I have gotten a report from my customer and he had a hard time keeping them buttoned up still managed a great finish. (no pics where taken) to two sons taking their father fishing for his birthday and a Tournament with Eric what a great week

Had returning friends for a corp. trip for a day and half and proud to say my guys won the Big Fish for Both Days

He didn’t stop after that one he hammered another stud a little later (the big one is pictured twice)

All this was on the 1st day and the 2nd day they didn’t take it easy on the others.


Looking Forward to next year all ready had a blast.

This next one is a 1st for me we had 3 Jim’s in one boat and a Michael and we caught them and kept on catching them I think it was a great birthday present , what do you guys think?




Yes we took a lot of pics and I wanted to share them with you all.

Most of the week the best way to catch them was on a SPRO Little John DD, 4×4 Kevin Hawk Signature Football Jig with a NetBait Paca Craw for trailer Green pumpkin, or a 11inch C Mac NetBait out on Ledges then in the Grass the good ol B Bug was still standing tall.

Now for the Tournament.

Eric and I jumped in the Guntersville Civitan Tournament without looking around or practicing we both felt that with the amount of pressure the lake is seeing it would be in our best interest to just show up and go fishing we kinda treated it like a practice day.  And with no complaints or losing a single fish we fished cleaned and had a awesome time, we cracked them on a SPRO Little JOHN and a Proto Type 4×4 bait. we had just over 23lbs and took 3rd. Yup you guessed it we hit up the King for the Whopper.

Well the camera guy might of not of been a real camera guy (sorry Eric)

With the lake being behind I see June being one of the Best Months to come, have days open to fish with you.
