Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 3/16/19

This past week took a hit on productivity as we seemed to be in a constant state of change and getting to where it appeared the fish moved was a tough move. Water current on the main river was so strong that working into the current pull was nearly impossible and fishing with it was too fast to create a bite. Consequently, for me we struggled this past week as bites were at a premium. 

We tried to stick to our pattern of rattle baits SPRO Aruka shad, Picasso shock Blades, SPRO square bills and Tight-Line swim jigs rigged with Missile bait swim baits. The biggest thing we tried to do was cover water all week as finding groups of fish was spotty at best and unless you stayed on your trolling motor it was tough. We were forced to stay is less than 6 ft. of water most of the week because of the current.

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 on the water. We fish with great sponsor products, Lowrance Electronics, Ranger Boats, Boat Logix Mounts, T&H Marine products, Duckett Fishing, Vicious Fishing, Navionics mapping and more!

The Spawn and Soft Plastics

When we start to see the bass bedding for the spawn nothing catches fish like soft plastics, it’s the universal bait the entices bedding fish and its easy for any angler to fish. The thing to remember is the presentations you can choose from are endless, just about any way you choose to rig your plastic will catch bass. 

The important thing to keep in your knowledge base is weighting the plastic is easy, anything less than an 1/8 oz. is generally the ticket to catching fish. Its very rare that I weight it any heavier than a ¼ oz. that would only be if its windy and in most cases its just enough to get the bait out easily while casting, slow drop rates are key. The other important part of plastics in the fall is having plastics that entice like lizards, something with legs arms that flutter and make the bait move and drop slowly. Missile Bait D-Bombs have great arms and are perfect spawn plastics. 

The presentation I use a lot in this spawning time is to whacky rig a Missile Bait “48” stick bait, I generally rig it on a 1/8oz. shaky head to give the bait an easy drop without having to peg a slip weight. This set-up is easy for young and or inexperienced fisherman alike and all you need to do is have a little feel for the bite and you can catch fish and many times it’s a good fish. I also like to Texas rig an old fashion lizard, there is just something about the way a lizard drops and moves that spawning fish love this plastic and it is always a great fish catcher. Colors to me were never very important but the thing I try to do is just match the water color with dark colors like watermelons etc. in bright clear water the brighter colors and whites seem to work well. 

Fishing plastics in the spawn is easy presentation and one that anyone can be successful at, it’s a great way and time of year to get your children catching fish. There is generally lots of bites and opportunities for those grand kids to catch fish.
