Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 11/16/19

Even though its been cold the weather has helped the fishing; it’s added some consistency to the fish, feeding and chasing were more the norm. the water temperature has dropped into the mid 50’s and the bass are feeding up before the winter cold drops the water temp much further. If you look and observe the conditions, there is gulls feeding all over the lake along with bass making the fish easy to find by just looking for feeding going on around you.

This week we went back to SPRO Aruka Shad rattle bait, SPRO Little John square bills, Picasso Umbrella rigs and Missile bait swim baits and Tight-line swim jigs. These combinations of baits all produced at some point the past week allowing us to average good numbers and decent size all week long. You had to consistently move until you found the right location but when you did it was worth it.

Come fish with me I have guides and days available to fish with you; no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great time fishing. Weather can be tough but its generally worth it. If you haven’t booked your preferred dates for 2020 its time to do so! We fish with great sponsor products, Lowrance Electronics, Ranger Boats, Boat Logix mounts, Mercury Motors, Vicious Fishing, Duckett Fishing, Navionics mapping, Power Pole and more.

Keys to Fall Fishing

It’s the time of year where you must be aware of the surroundings, all the natural signs mean something in the late fall. Birds diving, bait popping, loons diving, moon phases, water temperature and more add up to what you must make yourself aware of to have a successful day fishing. If you head to the water and don’t try to be aware of these nature producing habits and read the signs nature gives you then it will be easy to have a bad day on the water. 

Not only do the natural signs tell you what is going on they also lead you to the correct presentation. As an example, chasing bait or birds diving can also tell you how and or what depth you should be looking too in order to find feeding fish. An example is sea gulls; we all know sea gulls feed on top of the water so if your fishing a jig deep for example you might want to consider changing to a rattle bait, or swim jig and fish the upper surface area in order to present your bait where the feeding is occurring. We all know that bass like to feed and compete for food as they are really a competitive fish; this competitiveness allows you to also make choices of baits and speeds at which you retrieve your bait. Many times the faster you retrieve a bait the more the bass compete for it and in the late fall when their schooling and chasing speed reeling can get you bites you may not normally get when slowly presenting a bait like you have had to do all summer. 

Not many folks pay attention to the moon phase, but I believe that this late fall time of year the bass tend to be active in the dark moon and a few days before the full moon. That time between the two phases from full to dark moon makes them active and may very well be the key to their last on-slaught of intense feeding before they go dormant for the winter. Its also good to see a little sun light during this period as the sun groups up the bass and when you get into them you generally catch several off one spot. Let the natural signs lead you!
