  • Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 2/3/18

    With what appears to be the worst of the winter weather behind us, maybe a few cold days here and there but should be free from any long term extended cold days. We will be seeing increased activity every day! This past week was no exception with some big stringers caught around the lake on various days at various tournaments, one you get past the top boat or 2 the weights go way down with many participants not weighing in a fish. Don’t be fooled by hearing of real big weights as they are the exception not rule but improvement everyday will benefit us all.


    This week we had clearer water than last forcing me to slow down and look for structure and grass around humps and ledges, with the fish being grouped when you get a bite work that area completely before you leave it. Baits for this week I stuck pretty much to Carolina rigged missile bait “48” stick bait; Picasso Shock Waves rigged with a swim bait, and SPRO Aruka Shad rattle baits and Little John DD 60 crank baits.


    This weather and winter shall pass, and we will be in the good times before you know it, if you haven’t got your fishing vacation booked call me lets get you the dates that are best for your schedule. 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 on Lake Guntersville. If you’re not happy with my service I will try my best to make it right by you!
