  • Lake Guntersville August 28th 2017

    Guntersville is fishing pretty good for August and I might add that its producing big fish daily.. We've caught good ones daily and some days we get several. The main thing I've notice is what TVA is doing with the water, I've been able to pattern what the bass are doing based on what the river is doing and sometimes its really easy and most times it takes minute but once we get it figured it out its kinda like fishing on a private lake .... and its pretty fun... now we have had a day or two where it was down right tuff no water movement no wind lol plenty of bugs though ...

    Some of my favorite fishing is happening right now as I'm writing this .... FROGGIN Like always not all areas are good you need to do some fishing to find the good stuff. And its been if they blow up and miss they will keep trying till they get it...

    And the all mighty C Mac worm is still solid it has been a heck of a worm year and big ones have been eating it.. Been teaming it up with a 3/8oz Picasso Tungsten it comes through the grass so easy..


    So I've been lucky to get to try out a new spinner bait by Picasso Inviz-Wire PRO it has a swing head and special cupped blades that give off lots of vibration something our bass haven't felt.. Knock on wood with the swing head they have a hard time throwing the hook so its really a win win .. your wire does not get all bent up and they stay pegged ... Guntersville Tackle and Outdoors should be getting there stock of these pretty soon so stop in and check them out.

    We are getting some nice topwater bites as well and I see this getting better as the cool nights keep coming.
    Eric and I have been fishing a tournament every weekend and coming up just short of a win but the fish we are catching its really reminding us of the good ol days ... now its not like we have a honey hole its more like.... well wonder if they are over here so we go there and check and if they are not there its like well maybe its a dock day ... what I am getting at is we are just going fishing and its working out for my upcoming trips we can cover some much different types of water in a day that it makes the trips easier to find them for the day..

    Remember the Great American Eclipse ? Belle and I went fishing during it and I'm not sure if it helped or hurt the fishing but Belle sure was ready..

    Video of the eclipse
    Watch it HERE
    So this next part was something that I'll never forget ... I took a mother and son fishing.. we worked hard for the bites that we had , and I felt like it was one of the hardest days I've had on the lake .. if you do it enough you have a day when things break mess up or just malfunction. Then you turn the heat up and unplug the wind throw in a few gnats and you might have the picture painted ... So the day is nearing the end and Merritt has not given up on the fish and thats pretty impressive and with that said he got a big bite on a C Mac worm and the bass took off to deeper water as he was trying to keep it from going that way the bass got wrapped around my Mercury lower unit and was kinda pinned to the Power Pole so I was not about to let this fish get away I empty my pockets just incase I go in .... so I'm pretty much half way in with my legs still on the boat and the fish decides to swim around and get untangled and heads back to the grass ... after a few seconds of fighting we get the bass in the boat... and it was a 4-02 lb and when I say we all was relieved we really was... but thats not the cool part of this... a couple of days after our trip I get a package delivered and it was from Merritt , when he got home he built Belle and I a Lego Bass Boat and wrote a letter to us .... and It really still has me speechless on it... check it out below its really a neat boat...




    September is shaping up to be fun and I think October will be just crazy good .. Have select days open inquire HERE
