Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 2/4/17

With the FLW Tour and some of the best anglers in the world on Lake Guntersville I thought I
would give you some facts to digest for the first two days of the tournament. After 3 days of
practice one media day and 2 days of fishing the tournament has narrowed the field down to
20 fishermen and the winner will come out of the top 20 anglers.

The results for me this past week for my own fishing had some ups and downs, days where
the fished moved some we had some good results; other days we struggled so a mixed bag of
results on my part. Let’s examine the first two days of tournament results based on the FLW
anglers on the lake as we speak.

The top 2 anglers after day 2 are the only bags that have averaged over 20 lbs. per day. The
day 1 leader Jay Kendrick with over 25 lbs. had his bridge pattern fall apart on day 2 weighing
in just 1 fish and missing the top 20 cut by 6 places. After the top 2 we have 7 anglers
averaging 17 to 18 lbs. per day; 11 anglers averaging 15 to 16 lbs. p/day; 23 anglers with 12 to
13 lbs. p/day; 32 anglers with 10 to 11 lbs. p/day and the balance with 2 to 9 lbs. p/day or
less.

Break that even further there are 22 anglers that weighed in the limit of 5 fish per day
and 27 anglers averaging 4 fish per day. Granted these are keepers having to be over 15
inches to be brought to the scale. Some averages to digest, this means that 15 anglers
averaged 15 to 20 lbs. p/day; 47 anglers averaged 10 to 14 lbs. p/day; and 69 anglers
averaged 5 to 9 lbs. p/day with a few that did not weigh in a fish. These are a quick overview
of the numbers on my part I did not do any great mathematical analysis just enough to give a
look.

These are the facts as they stand after 2 days hope this gives you a view of how the lake is
fishing.

CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 9.44 FEET, 50’s

Bass fishing is slow but despite the tough weather conditions last week a few fish are biting. Fish up in the Little River near the Raysville area. A #5 Shad Rap can work as well as a jerk bait for spots and a few largemouth. When the crank bait bite dies off use a spinning reel and 8 pound test Sufix Elite line and a jig head with a Fat Albert grub. If you plan to head up into the Little River be very careful. The water levels are low and trees are showing up everywhere. Look for schools of shad in the mouth of the coves and fish a Flex It spoon. Find the bait and find some bass. Fish this bait under the school of bait fish you find. The better bite is coming as the sun warms up the rock

LAKE LANIER IS DOWN 10.7 FEET, THE CREEKS ARE STAINED AND THE MAIN LAKE IS CLEAR & 50’s

Spotted bass fishing is good and the wind have bunched spots up on points and they will bite a spinner bait and a jerk bait. Spots schooled up on and over the old channels in the centers of the creeks up and down lake. Also, there are some shallow fish on docks and points one day and then the next day, they seem to be gone. Head to the creek ledges in the mouths of the creeks from 35 to 50 feet deep and spoon or drop shot a few big fish. Keep an open mind and forget the water temperatures and throw out the book on this lake this winter. Small finesse worms one day and spinner baits, all white the next. There are some big spots are taken on spoons in 35 to 50 feet of water. Some spots are still right in the tops of the trees in the middle of the lower lake creeks. Look in ninety feet of water with trees coming up to the 50 or 45 feet range. Drop a Flex it spoon right on their heads. Up lake, pick the wind blown banks and spotted and largemouth bass may just be there. Spinnerbait in mostly white colors are best.

This Lake Lanier Striper report is from Captain Ken West 404 561 2564. Contact us on our web site. www.bigfishonguide.com

Striper fishing has been good but the upcoming weather forecast could be a problem this weekend. Pay close attention to the bait and adjust your fishing techniques accordingly. If the bait is shallow start your day with unweighted free lines 50 to 70 feet behind the boat. Deploy planner boards with bank side planner at 20 feet behind the board and 50 to 70 feet on the deeper water planner board. We continue to use a combination or medium minnows and Blueback Herring with 12 pound test fluorocarbon 5 foot leaders. As always match your hook size to the size of the bait. We are using a #2 Gamakatsu Octopus hook for the medium minnows and a #1 or #1/0 for the Herring. If the bait is deep, 30 plus feet, weight your free lines. Watch for any shad activity on the surface or on the Lowrance Down Scan technology. Bait is the key this week. Deploy several down rods and fish as close to the bottom as possible. As always keep someone on the front deck casting a ½ ounce bucktail jig. We are also seeing some top water action. Keep your eyes on the water and resistant the temptation to “plow” into a school of feeding fish with the big motor. There are fish in the creeks lake wide however Flat creek should be your first stop. The lake is 10.3 feet below full pool with stain in the back of the creeks and clear on the main lake. The water temperature is in the low 50’s. Call Big Fish On Guide Service at 404 561 2564 to schedule a guided fishing trip on Lake Lanier.

This Lake Lanier Crappie report is from Dan Saknini, member of the Lanier Crappie Angler’s Club. See our club’s website, www.laniercrappieanglers.net

With the continued combination of above average temperatures and the heavy rains over the weekend with the ground already saturated, the backs of the creeks are stained and we are flirting with 60 degree water temps. You may notice a few degrees cooler in the mornings, but as the sun hits the stained water, temps creep up on a sunny day. The bait and the crappie are responding by moving to shallower water. We are targeting brush piles and docks as shallow as 8 to 10 feet. Fishing is good to excellent. The 1/24 ounce jig heads combined with Bobby Garland Baby Shad in Pink Panther, Purple Mist and Lights Out are working well. Tube Jigs, hair jigs and Jiffy Jigs are all working as well. Since the fish have moved to shallower structure, it makes live bait easier to use if you prefer. This pattern should continue as long as the warm weather lasts. Don’t hesitate to fish stained water, as the fish adjust quickly in warmer temperatures. The fish and the fishermen are enjoying the warmer weather, so don’t miss out!

Another reminder: if you are on the water in cold weather, it is even more important to wear your life jacket, as a fall can be serious with the threat of hypothermia. Be safe on the water, bundle up and enjoy fishing during the lower traffic winter months.

LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 11.7 FEET, 50’S & CLEAR

Bass fishing is fair and it can be described as hit and miss. One day their mood might be fairly conducive to good fishing and the next they may be quite difficult. Spotted bass are deep water fish and points are their highways. Use the Lowrance technology and send the side beams out to 5 time the water depth and ride by the points and look for the small dots. That will be the spotted bass. With more cold weather fish have will stay out in the deeper waters. Green pumpkin finesse worms on a lead head or Shakey head will be the best all day bait. But be patient and fish deep. Slow presentations will be important to success. Look for deep docks and any deep brush around dock. A sunny afternoon or two can pull some fish up on shallow warming rocks. Shallow stained water will also have the same warming effect. A slow crank bait will be a good bait to search for shallower fish. A Shad Rap is hard to beat. Something like Bandit 300 or a deep running Fat Free Shad can also be good choices. At a slow retrieve, these relatively deep runners will bang noisily into shallow bottom and rock. Watch for any shad activity on the surface or on the Lowrance Down Scan technology. Bait is the key this week. They will also cover deeper ranges well. Steeper rocky banks and rocky points are a good bet. Fish the crank bait with a pause retrieve on a long casts and never overlook rocks on the bridge.

LAKE JACKSON IS DOWN 1.16 FEET, 50’s

Bass fishing is slow. With the water temperatures ranging cold finding bites is tough. Still a small number of bass will bite as the spots are the best bet on the lake. Spots can more tolerant to the cold waters. Fish the lower lake and take a variety of baits. Worms and various other forms of plastic are best. Fish light line on sea walls and any wood and then after mid day go to the deep diving crank baits while working points and deep ledges off the points. Wood will be the key as the colder waters are forcing them to hang tight. Suspending bass are located just of main lake or river points in 15 to 20 feet of water. Good lures to catch these suspending bass are the #5 jointed Shad Rap in the red crawfish color and the perch color Bandit. Some bass were caught last weekend on these baits. Any and all brush piles or stump beds that re holding fish need a good application of both the crank bait and Shakey head and worm combo.

Watch the Fish and Game Forecaster on my site and use the bigger baits when the peaks occur.

LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, THE LAKE IS CLEAR ON THE SOUTH END STAINED UP THE LAKE AND INTO THE RIVER TEMPRATURE 50 54

Bass fishing is fair. Spinner baits fished in the creeks and coves shallow will produce fish. White and chartreuse have been the best colors. When Georgia Power is pulling water the same spinner bait will work on the bridge rip rap. (They have been pulling early in the mornings) Small crank baits fished along the side of the docks in the middle of the coves out to the main lake will also produce. You can also add fishing a rattle trap around any deep dock and around rip rap early. Jigs fished around wood structure have also produced some larger fish.

Striper report by Captain Mark Smith, Reel Time guide service. Call 404 803 0741

reeltime@bellsouth.net

Striper fishing is good. The fish are mid lake around river bend. Use your Lowrance to locate the large schools of bait and the stripers will be close by. Look for the birds diving, if you see birds go fish them. Live bait as well as spoons will produce large numbers of fish. Watch for any shad activity on the surface or on the Lowrance Down Scan technology. Bait is the key this week.

Crappie fishing is fair. The fish are staging in the creeks. Long lining jigs over the fish will produce good catches. Spider rigging will also catch some fish.

Make sure you stop by Sugar Creek Marina and pick up your spoons and all your tackle needs. You can also book your crappie and striper trips as well as on the water Lowrance classes, with Reel Time Guide Service at 404 803 0741 or reeltime@bellsouth.net

WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 4.5 FEET, CLEAR & 60’S

Bass fishing is fair and more cold weather will slow the action. The lake is coming up after some rain up north. Now finesse fishing is still the way to go. Throw a Shakey head rigged with a 5 inch Senko in 12 to 18 feet of water on the river channels. Color doesn’t seem to matter but Watermelon has been the color of choice. Crank baits are still doing well but it seems like it has to be sunny and clear for the fish to really start eating it good. Watch for any shad activity on the surface or on the Lowrance Down Scan technology. Bait is the key this week. The crank bait will need to be a #5 Shad Rap or a Lucky Craft MR in the natural shad colors. Fish the rocks and any point that has red clay around them. This seems to be a little bit warmer around these areas. Jigging spoons is still working on the humps and road beds down lake. A silver ½ ounce spoon is the best bait this week.

We provide tournament anglers with a West Point Bass Fishing GPS coordinates. Send us an e mail to ken@southernfishing.com for a sample. Waypoints are $99.00.

Marker 81, 33 07 309 085 06 387 Marker 81 on the river. Just below this marker is a point and a creek on the left going up the lake.

LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.05 FEET, CLEAR, 50’S

Bass fishing is slow as the area took a hit this week with the cold weather state wide. A pattern or location today may not produce very well the next day. Riprap and other rocky banks are holding fish that are being caught with small to medium crank baits, jigs, and soft plastics. Any shallow rocks should be located very near to much deeper water. Some good cranking choices are a Shad Rap RS #5, Thunder Shad, Deep Little N, Rapala DT10, and Fat Free Shad #5 & #6. Anglers should experiment with chartreuse, shad, and silver patterns. Jigs should be in the ¼ to 3/8 ounce sizes with a plastic or pork trailer. A Zoom Pro Chunk or a #11 Uncle Josh pork chunk will both work. For soft plastics, try a Zoom finesse worm with a 1/8 ounce weight rigged Texas style or the same worm on a 1/8 or 3/16 ounce jig head.

WEISS LAKE IS AT 3 FEET 2 INCHES BELOW FULL POOL, CLEAR, 52 54 DEGREE’S

Now available for sale 50 of my proven GPS waypoints for off shore structure for Bass and Crappie fishing on Weiss Lake, Alabama. For more info contact Ken Sturdivant at ken@southernfishing.com.

Bass fishing is fair and most fish have moved deeper on the creek ledges, on main lake points, sand bars and humps, on their winter pattern, and they are being caught on jigs, Shakey heads and drop shot rigs and Alabama rigs. The spotted bass are biting well in the upper little river and Chattooga River.

Striper fishing is fair and they are being caught in the main Channels of Little River and the Chattooga River and the Coosa River, trolling live bait or umbrella rigs and jigs.

Crappie fishing is great. Our fish are suspended in main Coosa River channel and Little River. The deeper fish in the Coosa channel are being caught spider rigging minnows 18 to 20 feet deep. Fish are suspended 10 to 14 feet deep in Little Rive and they can be caught long line trolling with Jiffy Jigs in 1/24th and 1/16 ounce sizes. Use these colors JJ13, JJ17, JJ20, JJ24, JJ25, and Marks blue and Sexy Bug. A float and fly technique and minnows under a float is also producing well.

LAKE GEORGE IS FULL, 60’S

Bass fishing is fair. The shad are in the backs of the creeks. The fish did not seem to care as they are still on the creek ledges and everyone is using the Carolina rigs. Concentrating on a structure in 18 to 20 feet of water is the best bet but it is hard work. Dragging the worms slowly through brush will be the key for bass but be patient. Fish are pale in color in a deep winter pattern. Surface water are starting off in the mid 50’s and warming to around 58. As the cold as started the vegetation to kill over, and looking around on the graph you could see fish holding around 18 feet. Working those areas slowly for extended periods of time is a must. Cold waters all week will only make more and more of these fish start holding deeper.
