Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 2/16/19

With the spring weather quickly approaching the winter so far has been really-good; yes, there been some ups and downs but its been one of the best winter bites we’ve seen in many years. This past week was no exception some really-good days some weather change days that slowed the bite and some days of average fishing. Look for some great days ahead and improvement over last year as we progress into 2019.

This past week we kept fishing in 5 to 9 ft. of water, baits have been fairly-steady with the SPRO Aruka Shad rattle bait being our best catcher over the 7 days. We also fished Picasso umbrella rigs, Picasso spinner baits and Missile Bait ‘48’ stick baits and Tight-Line Chatter Baits. Grass is the key, along with covering water until you find a group of fish. 

Come fish with us no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great day on the water. I have guides and days available to fish with you. Looking for a way to entertain your customer we do corporate trips; we would love to help you entertain your important clients. We fish with great sponsor products, Lowrance Electronics, Boat Logix Mounts, T&H marine products, Duckett Fishing, Vicious Fishing, Ranger Boats, Mercury Motors, Power pole and more.

My Weekly Article



Spring Top Water bite is Near

With the spring fishing quickly approaching there is a presentation that many fishermen forget about and that is the top water bite. There is probably no presentation that can be more fun during the spring time than fishing over the top of bass that are nearing the spawn or on the bed. If you pick the right time, an active day you can have a wild time top water fishing during this time of year. 

I can tell you from many years of the past that fishing buzz baits, spooks or even frogs during the spring can be as rewarding as any presentation you can fish. The key is finding the right type of water with the correct cover and bait moving around. When you have Lilly pad stems, Asian weed, or green grass in shallow spawning areas along with bait you have the ideal location to pull out those top water baits and go to catching those wild explosions from active spring bass. It’s not rocket science it’s just having your favorite top water bait rigged up on your deck and making a few casts under the right conditions to see if the time is right to get those explosions. 

It won’t take long to tell if the timing is right, when the spring top water bite is on, they will aggressively attack your bait so a few casts will give you some quick discovery into the spring top water bite. Look for bait being pushed around, survey the grass type around the area you’re in; when you’re seeing the stems moving or bait popping your in the right location to give it a try. I like noisy baits as it seems to get them to react quickly, loud buzz-baits, spooks with BB’s in them and frog’s that you have added some noise to like rattles. Work them slowly and try to get a reaction, speed them up and change speeds to see if the bass are reacting to a certain speed. Frog are ideal as you can stop it, work it quickly, walk the dog and let it sit giving the bass many different looks to get a reaction. Color is also key as spring time water from heavy rain can be muddy so change color until one gets you a bite. Top water spring fishing will be as rewarding as anything you can do in the spring time to catch fish!
