Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 4/14/18

Fishing this week had to overcome the affect of high pressure and north winds early in the day; combine that with some 30-degree type temperatures in the morning and fishing was good for those who were patient especially between 10 am and 3 pm. You had to find their pattern and wait on the wind to shift to the south each day, but it was worth it. 

The fish are shallow their spawning in many areas of the lake and the bite is typical spawn bite; you must slow down look for spawning areas and the right kind of cover, but it was worth it. With the bite in the 2 to 4 ft. range soft plastics were the key to our catches, Missile Bait D-Bombs, Missile “48” stick baits and Missile Craw Fathers were all we fished all week.

Come fish with us we have guides and days available to fish with you, we are the most inclusive guide service on Guntersville. No one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great day on the water. We fish with great sponsor products, T&H Marine, Lowrance Electronics, Ranger Boats, Duckett Fishing, Vicious Fishing and more.

Focus on the Right Depth

As we approach the post spawn time of year, there will be many changes in where the bass locate and focusing on the depth they move too will be a key to finding post spawn fish. It’s a time of year that can really frustrate many fishermen especially if they come from lakes that are so deep that their back ground has them banging the banks. 

When you move to shallower lakes banging the banks in most cases cannot be effective, so you must focus on off-shore locations. Off-shore fishing is very different, and depth can be the key to catching fish; electronics can be your only friend so sharpen up your electronic skills. Scanning bottom structure with your Lowrance Structure Scan can be your best bet to winning the off-shore battle; understanding what bass look like on your screen is imperative, finding bait is a must and combining this with depth is key.  

One of the best ways to start are to find long under water points and humps that offer plenty of depth change out in the middle of what many might say is no-where in your lake. These under water depth changes are the key to finding the proper depth to catch fish from. Scan these points or humps from one end to the other cross them back and forth until you see bass holding on them; If you locate some fish off the long points and humps make a mental note as to the depth, set your Navionics mapping or fishing depth at that depth range and you have the start of a pattern. Once you have this set you can easily locate other similar depth ranges as the coloring on your mapping will easily show you the other areas and contours of these depth ranges. Bass generally locate all over the lake in similar depths, the reason is not clear, my guess is its oxygen, current and structure related as this moves them to these common depths. This allows you to find more fish, in more areas with similar structure and find fish all day long. 

Depth is key in off-shore fishing, giving yourself the tools and knowledge to be effective is also a fact of off-shore winning patterns.
