Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 2/24/17

After some of the warmest weather for the month of February we have ever seen the fish
pulled up into the shallows as if the spawn is upon us. I don’t believe they are ready at least
not a big percentage of them; however there are some early spawning fish as there always is
every year. I do believe that the next full moon will move us into the first wave of spawning
fish.

Baits this past week for me were still pretty much reaction type baits with SPRO Aruka Shad
rattle baits leading my bigger fish catch for sure. We also fished Missile bait “48” stick baits DBombs
and destroyers. We also caught fish on Tight-Line football jigs, and swim jigs. As
always this time of year the bait selection will get wider as the bite keeps getting better; the
depth of fishing was all over the map as one day we were deep and another shallow.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have some great
days fishing; I have days and guides available to fish with you. Setting up your corporate
customers with some fun, let us take them fishing it’s a great way to entertain your
customers. We fish with great sponsor products, Lowrance Electronics, Vicious Line, T&H
marine products, Duckett rods, reels and more.

CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 9.81 FEET, 50¡¯s

Bass fishing is good. The bite is turning on with the recent warm spell and moving fish well into their pre spawn pattern. Most bass are being found in ditches or flats with jerk baits and crankbaits in 15 feet of water or less. On the warmer afternoons bass will be cruising in the backs of many pockets. We¡¯re certainly not done with all of the cold weather, but spring is now upon us. Here are some things to keep handy as you fish this month Spinnerbaits, crankbaits, jerk baits and jigs. If the weather continues to stay moderate to warm, big female bass will cruise the shallows looking for an area that provides cover and food for the spawn. Throw close to and into the thickest cover possible during the warmest days. However, if the temperature stays cool back off the cover some and try slow rolling around the edges of spawning flats. If the month does stay on the cool side jerk baits and crank baits that suspend and fish down the middle of the pockets. The jig and pig will produce big bass now. Try it on main and secondary points that are near spawning flats.

LAKE LANIER IS DOWN 9.9 FEET, THE CREEKS ARE STAINED AND THE MAIN LAKE IS CLEAR & 50¡¯s

This Report brought to you by: Jimbo Mathley, www.jimboonlanier.com 770 542 7764

Bass fishing is good and is getting better. The lake level has been stable over the past week and the water temps are on the rise. The fish are ahead of schedule with all the warm weather we are having. The fish have been shallow over the past week. We are starting back shallow in ditches early, and remain shallow to 15 feet or so through the day. Focus on the key features you find shallow near the ditches as well such as clay and rock points. We are starting in ditches and staying in them through the day as well as working shallow pockets just off the main lake or main creek channels. Most days we are focusing in 15 feet of water or less. We are starting with a SuperSpin tipped with a boot tail type trailer right in the ditch. Also, a Spro McStick or McRip has been a good choice as far as jerk baits go, in addition to a Megabass Vision 110. A finesse worm on a Picasso Shake E Football Head or a Chattahoochee Jig has been a good alternative if the fish are not as aggressive. As the sun gets up, check the shallow docks in ditches and pockets for activity. Work a jerkbait beside these shallow docks, as well as a jig and worm. These fish are already starting to stage in preparation for the spawn. You will find spots and largemouth in these places. This pattern definitely works better when the sun is out as opposed to cloudy conditions. The clouds make the fish scatter. While they still remain close to the dock, they are often not directly under the docks. The fishing is definitely more random under cloud cover.

This is a great time to learn the early spring bite on Lanier. They are up and moving! Here are the dates I have open in March: 1, 7, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 17, 20, 21, 23, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30, and 31 Give me a call and let¡¯s get out and have some fun.

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

Striper fishing is good. We are having spring weather in February! The lake water temperatures continue in the low to mid 50¡¯s. The bait and the Stripers continue to be scattered lake wide and have not concentrated in the back of the creeks as in previous years. Consequently, you can find fish from the North end to the South end of the lake and at any depth. Your Lowrance HDS is a critical tool in finding these fast moving fish. Because the stripers are feeding on small threadfins, medium minnows have been working better than herring. Deploy both unweighted and weighted free lines with a medium minnow on a #4 or a #2 Gamakatsu Octopus hook. We tried both 10 pound test and 12 pound test leaders this week and both worked. We also caught a few fish with blueback herring which could indicate a switch to larger baits. We used the umbrella rig this week and it also worked which may also indicate a switch to larger baits. The key is to stay flexible and in terms of where you look for fish and the techniques used. The lake is 10 feet below full pool and the water is clear on the main lake and slightly stained in the back of the creeks. The water temperature is in the low to mid 50¡¯s. Call Big Fish On Guide Service at 404 561 2564 to schedule a guided fishing trip on Lake Lanier.

The Lake Lanier Crappie report is by Dan Saknini. see our club¡¯s website, www.laniercrappieanglers.net

Current water temperature is 54 degrees, and on a warm and sunny day in the backs of creeks the afternoon water temp is reaching 57 degrees. For this time of year, this is significant because we are in the pre spawn. If we do not have another cold snap, our best estimate for the spawn is that it will begin with the next full moon in about 2 ¨ö weeks. The fish are roaming around their brush piles in pursuit of the abundance of bait. The bite is excellent. This is the time of year when we experiment with different color and types of crappie jigs to put them to the test. If they don¡¯t work now, they most likely will never work! Having said that, in my opinion, how you present the jig is the most important factor in catching fish. How you move it in the water is critical. The majority of strikes occur when the jig is falling. So when you reel in the jig, shake the tip of the rod while retrieving. After every 2 or 3 cranks, pause for few seconds to allow the jig to fall. Watch your line carefully during the fall, and if you see slack in your line, set the hook. The fish we are catching now are on or around docks. Pay attention to the bait, they will lead you to the fish. If you go in a pocket and don¡¯t see bait, even if it is a favorite spot, don¡¯t spend too much time on it, as they are really following the bait. As the water temps rise in the next couple of weeks, the female fish should start checking their spawning grounds and moving to the blowdowns. As of today, we have not seen any indications they have begun moving that direction. Long line trolling remains a very effective way to catch fish, and the minnow bite is producing equally well. Pick your favorite method and enjoy this early spring weather. Boat traffic is increasing, so stay safe on the water and wear your life jacket!

LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 9.6 FEET, 50¡¯S & CLEAR

This report is from Matt Driver.

Bass fishing is good. Water temperatures warming into the mid 50¡¯s and could creep up on 60 soon. The key is shallow. Put you mind in pre spawn mode, not winter. The bass are shallow and we don’t see any weather in the near future to send them back deep. The Square bill Bite is still good and there has been a good shallow jerkbait bite as well. The Spro McStick 95 in shad patterns, finished on Sunline 10 pounds Sniper fluorocarbon. There has been a good bite as well along ditches near staging areas. A brown football head jig with a brown Big Bite twin tail grub has been the ticket. We are getting to the point that fish our own just about any pattern you want to fish. Even though we are about three weeks to a month out from the spawn, I would not doubt if we see spawning type behavior in the near future. To be honest I wish we would have some cooler weather coming in soon to prolong spring.

This Lake Allatoona fishing guides report for striper and hybrid has been brought to you exclusively by Robert Eidson of First Bite Guide Service 770 827 6282 www.firstbiteguideservice.com eidson6260@comcast.net

Line side fishing is excellent. The white bass, stripers and hybrids fishing is fantastic. The live bait bite right now is great using shad, shiners or trout. Fish these baits on free lines and planer boards right at sun up. After the sun comes up, we have been changing over to all down lines. The north end of the lake has slowed down a little since the recent rains, but should return very shortly. The fish where staging for the spawn run but where pushed back south mid lake because on the rolling mud that is coming out of the rivers. Mid lake is fishing very good right now from Kellogg’s Creek to Clear Creek. The south end of the lake is also starting to heat up. Iron Hill is starting to produce some really nice fish right now. The numbers are better mid lake north, but if you are after size then down head south.

LAKE JACKSON IS DOWN 1.1 FEET, 50¡¯s

Bass fishing is good. With much warmer weather lately, begin to look for fish to move to the back half of spawning coves. You can just about throw any shallow running bait like the spinnerbaits, crank bait or swim bait and catch active fish that are feeding heavily. The spawn might come much sooner than normal with higher than average water temperatures. Use the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology together to find the fish. Use the down beam in auto depth and send the side beams five time the depth. Soft plastics like tubes and lizards will work well on bedding fish toward the end of the month. Dipping the bait in JJ¡¯s Magic will help increase the bites, a little chartreuse on the tail.

Bass fishing is fair. Small crank baits fished along the side of the docks in the middle of the coves out to the main lake will produce. You can also add fishing a Rat L Trap around any deep dock and around rip rap early. Jigs fished around wood structure have also produced some larger fish. Some fish are starting to move into the creeks and coves so don’t be afraid to move in and out of the coves and pockets, fishing all depths of water. Use the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology together to find the fish. Use the down beam in auto depth and send the side beams five time the depth.

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.

Crappie fishing is good. The fish are moving into the creeks. Long lining jigs over the fish will produce good catches. Spider rigging will also catch some fish. Some of the bigger fish are starting to show up in the rivers.

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 4.7 FEET, CLEAR & 60¡¯S

Bass fishing is good. It is spring in February. Schools of spotted bass mixed with hybrids, white bass and stripers and even the occasional largemouth can still be caught on jigging spoons and drop shot rigs on deeper offshore structures. A day producing a mixed bag of species fish is not uncommon. Baits such as suspending jerk baits, Zoom Super Flukes, Senko¡¯s and spinnerbaits are already catching shallow largemouth bass and spots. Try to fish these baits in or near any shallow cover or around schools of baitfish in the back of pockets. Fish the open water in the pockets with a 1/2 ounce Rat L Trap, a sex shad crankbait or the Alabama rig. Crankbaits on rip rap or chunk rock is also a good pattern for early spring. The shallow bite will only get better as the water warms in February. Remember that the creeks always warm first. The pre spawn is just around the corner.

LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN .86 FEET, CLEAR, 60¡¯S

Bass fishing is good. Fish jerk baits on the lake like the Spro McSticks in Norman flake and spooky shad colors. Fish main lake points and flats. Be sure to work these baits around any dock and on any grass line. Fish the flat sided crankbaits such as Davis Fishco and Norman Flat Broke Baits in these same areas. Anglers are also using the loaded Alabama rig and taking some good fish in the backs of any sandy pocket. Any crawfish or shad patterns will do the job. The jig bite is good mid day after the sun warms the water. Use the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology together to find the fish. Use the down beam in auto depth and send the side beams five time the depth. Pitch the docks in the up rivers coves and swim it back after lunch. Use 1/2 ounce jigs in green and brown around any wood cover too and add a Zoom salt trailer in matching colors.

Bass fishing is good and a lot fish are shallow and starting on a pre spawn pattern, these aggressive fish can be caught on a variety of lures. Shallow running crank baits and spinner baits are working well. Use the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology together to find the fish. Use the down beam in auto depth and send the side beams five time the depth.

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 and they are migrating into the spawning coves and creeks in the lower and mid lake areas, and they can be caught, Long line trolling with Jiffy Jigs in 1/24th and 1/16 ounce in colors JJ08,JJ13, JJ17, JJ20, JJ24, JJ25, and Marks blue and Sexy Bug www.jiffyjigs.com.

LAKE GEORGE IS DOWN 2.2 FEET, 60¡¯S

Bass fishing is good. Fishing on main lake points in 8 to 10 feet of water on gravel points and throw sassy shad, Rat L Traps, and crank baits.
