Lake Guntersville 12-14 May 2011
14-May-11 - 12-14 May 2011 - Lake Guntersville – The past 3 days, we have had a group of guides fishing with Coach Huggins, the Head Basketball Coach at West Virginia, Greg Duckworth from the band Taylor Made Country, www.taylormadecountry.com and several of their close friends have been fishing with us as a group out of Waterfront. We all had great outings catching plenty of fish. All of us are throwing soft plastic baits, Swim baits, with top water early, Jigs and some Spinner Baits. Today, after the West Virginia gang departed I was joined by a returning client Bob Tolar, from Birmingham, AL. All three days caught lots of fish on every stop. Bass are moving to the grass areas following the shad that are gathering near the ledges. Most fish where in the 2-3 pound range with several 4-6 pound fish in the mix. Water temps are steady at 76 to 79 degrees as of this afternoon. Our better fish came on Tightline Football Head Jig’s (Black/Blue) and t-rigged Brush Hogs and Assassinator Spinnerbaits and plastics. We are seeing a top water bite both early morning and late afternoon on Assassinator buzz baits, www.assassinatorbaits.com and Pop-R’s. The frog/rat bite is slowly starting when the sun gets up, in the areas that have duck weed and lily pads starting to emerge. I have a few days available this month. I'm already booking days for the June and July, make your reservations now for some great late spring/early summer time action on Guntersville and Nickajack. We supply all fishing gear, lures at no additional cost you and 110% dedication to making your trip successful. Make your reservations now for some great action on Tennessee River. “Let’s go fish’ in”

Guntersville 20-21 Apr 2011
21-Apr-11 - 20-21 Apr 2011 - Lake Guntersville Fishing Reports – Over the last two days I have had a lot of fun fishing with Shay from Hendersonville TN and Jason for the Great State of Michigan down for vacation. We caught fish both days and enjoyed the great weather. Both Jason and Shay averaged 15-20 fish per day mostly 2-3.5 pound fish, however they had several over 4 pounds the last few days that made it in the boat, including a couple over 5. Water temps are steady at 68 to 72 degrees in the coves off the mid lake area. Our better fish came on wacky rigged senko’s, chatter baits, spinner bait and football head jigs by Tightline Jigs on secondary points in the coves. Today and actually it started last night, we found a great top water bite using buzz baits by Assassinator Baits, www.assassinatorbaits.com, the current Day on the Lake record setting lure used by Elite Angler Dustin Wilks. The key factor simply remains being in the right place at the right time with the right presentation. I'm already booking days for the May and June, make your reservations now for some great late spring/early summer time action on Guntersville and Nickajack. It won't be long and we'll see the steady spinner bait and top water bite on both lakes "Let's go fish' in"

Guntersville 16 Apr 2011
16-Apr-11 - 16 Apr 2011 - Lake Guntersville Fishing Reports – Today, I was joined by the Murphy family from Mt Juliet TN, Chris, Karis, Austin and Karis’ Aunt, Uncle and Dad from Central Georgia. Water temps are dropped a little as expected from yesterdays storms and are steady at 63-64.5 degrees in the coves off the mid lake area. Our better fish came on wacky rigged senko’s, chatter baits, spinner bait and football head jigs by Tightline Jigs on secondary points in the coves. Austin owned the best action of the today which was around grass, stumps, docks and lay downs in four feet or less of water. He boated a solid 8 Fish with 3 of them over 4 pounds and one spawned out female over 5.5 pounds , the whole family caught fish today, with several good fish in the 2-3 pound range. The key factor simply remains being in the right place at the right time with the right presentation. As always during this time of the year check for a spinner bait and buzz bait bite every stop, even though we had no real takers today it will bust wide out soon. Over the next few days this wave of spawners will done and will start to feed more aggressively. As that progresses watch for an all out top water assault and for the shad spawn at the beginning of May.
The fishing is only going to get better on both Guntersville and Nickajack in the coming weeks with both lakes showing signs of an all out fish producing April and May! I have few days left in for this week after that it’s 30 April before I have anything open, I'm already booking days for the May and June, make your reservations now for some great late spring time action on Guntersville and Nickajack. It won't be long and we'll see the steady spinner bait and top water bite on both lakes "Let's go fish' in"

Guntersville This Spring
15-Apr-11 - 10 Apr 2011 - Lake Guntersville Fishing Reports – The past couple of days has been mostly pre-tournament planning/scouting with clients from North Georgia and South Alabama. The fishing remains good on most days, challenging on others. Congratulation’s go out to Wayne Boyd of Cedar Bluff, AL client and friend of mine for his 8.04 Bucket Head which earned him Big Fish as the boater in yesterday’s BFL on Lake Guntersville. The mornings started out with slick waters and warm air temps! (A welcome site from earlier this week) The winds picked up each day shortly after 9-10am. Water temps have improved greatly starting out at 63 to 65 and by late yesterday afternoon we found some 72 plus water. The best action the past few days has Lizards, Brush Hogs, Senkos, and jigs in mostly green pumpkins and June bug. Look for grass, stumps and lay downs in eight feet or less. A key factor is simply being in the right place at the right time with the right presentation. Our better fish came on football head jig by Tightline Jigs on secondary points in the coves, check for a spinner bait bite every stop, we caught a few over the last couple days on a bleeding minnow spinner bait. With forecasted high temps of 75-80 degrees, the fishing is only going to get better on both Guntersville and Nickajack in the coming weeks with both lakes showing signs of a all out fish producing April and May! I have few days left in April, I'm already booking days for the May and June, make your reservations now for some great mid spring action on Guntersville and Nickajack. It won't be long and we'll see the steady spinner bait and top water bite on both lakes "Let's go fish' in"
