Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 1/21/17
I must admit this warming trend has been very unusual even for the deep-south in the middle of January. The water temperatures are in the high 50ís and even some 60 degree water, with all this the bass are fat and looking very much like they could jump on the bed any day. The last time we had this warm of a winter as I recall was 2007 and the grass got so thick in early March that the ability to fish the lake became real limited because of it. We need some normal weather to get back to the traditional bite of February and March.
Fishing seems up and down with not a lot of numbers but when you catch a fish its good size and thick looking like footballs; the number of bites is not great but you can hang a monster. I spent most of the week fishing SPRO Aruka shad rattle baits, Picasso Shock Blade chatter baits, Tight-Line swim jigs and Missile Bait swim baits rigged on the jig. The fish were hard to come by but as I said the size was encouraging. If there was a key for me it was finding bait balls, when I did I found some bites!
Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great time on the water. If this weather continues itís going to turn on like a light switch so being on the water could really pay some great results. I have days and guides available to fish with you; we fish with great sponsor products; Lowrance electronics, Navionics charts, T&H Marine Products, Vicious Fishing, Duckett rods and reels and more. A new sponsor for me is Python electronics mounts you ought to see this front bow mount, it is the strongest most secure mount I have ever used.
