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 50’s 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 it’s 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.

Bass fishing is fair. With the weekend warming up, the bass should respond. It is now spring but the bass have to start bulking up. The largemouth bass are holding tight in the deeper water and expect them to give in a little at the daytime temperatures rise warm. Lots of warm weather has flowed in and the bass feel it. Grass mats are still present and a few good size bass are being caught while working these mats. Any jerk bait and a deep diving Rapala will work well along the edges of the heavier mats. With the wind blowing in on these huge grass beds there can be a good bite with a stop and go retrieve. Let the bait sit longer than normal to get some action. Carolina rigs in real deep water is where some anglers prefer to fish on the colder mornings while others are still depending on that deep water vertical jig bite. All these combinations are working and you will have to see which one is doing the best job on the day you go.

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

This report brought to you by Jimbo On Lanier 770 542 7764 www.jimboonlanier.com

Bass fishing is good. The lake has started to drop again after a brief rise after last week’s rain. The surface temperatures are back on the way up with all this warm weather we are having and projected to have over the next several days. The ditch bite continues to be good and we are catching them using the traditional ditch fishing methods like the SuperSpin, SPRO Jerkbait, SPRO Crankbait, jig and Picasso Shake E Head. Start back shallow in these ditches early, and then move out deeper in the ditches as the day progresses. We are starting in these ditches first thing and remaining flexible as the day¡¯s progress. Lowrance Down Scan technology can scan much wider areas with the narrow beams so anglers can see the bait, the structure and the fish four times better than with sonar. Find the bait and you will find the fish. Some days we adjust to much deeper water within those ditches, and on others, we are finding the fish are staying shallow in and around those ditches as well as up around docks. 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. A Spro crankbait is never a bad choice either, both in the ditches and around rocky/clay points as well. A finesse worm on a Picasso Shaky Football Head or a Chattahoochee Jig has been a good alternative if the fish are not as aggressive. If the ditch bite does slow, we have been shifting to steeper rocky points and finding success with a jig and worm as well. We have also continued to spoon up a few fish out of the timber, or near the timber, in creek arms/ditches in 30 50 feet. Check for bait and fish out deeper in the ditches as the day progresses. If you see fish out deeper, a spoon, jig, or shaky head can be a great way to catch them, depending on how they are positioned.

The ditch bite is here and the fish are positioning around the timber. If you are wanting to learn the deep timber bite, now is the time. Give me a call and let¡¯s get out and have some fun! Thanks to all and May God Bless.

I am now guiding in a Brand New Xpress Bass Boat – 21¡¯3¡È powered by a 250 Yamaha SHO and equipped with the latest Lowrance HDS Gen III units featuring 3D Structure Scan technology. Come take a ride in this beauty!

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 have seen some consistency in temperatures over the last week with a corresponding improvement in fishing conditions. The bait and the fish have moved shallow and into the backs of the creeks. 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. As the day progresses move to deeper water from 25 to 50 feet and weight your free lines. Deploy several down rods and fish as close to the bottom as possible. As always keep someone on the front deck casting a ¨ö ounce bucktail jig. This pattern should continue to produce as long as the weather remains consistent. 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. The creeks on the south end of the lake are holding fish. Bald Ridge Creek, Shoal Creek, Flat Creek and Big Creek are good places to start. The lake is 10.7 feet below full pool. 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.

In comparison to a year ago when the water temps were in the low 40¡¯s, the lake level was above full pool, and the water was heavily stained due to all the rain, today water temperatures rose to about 57 degrees by the time we stopped fishing shortly after lunch. In the back of Two Mile Creek, the water temp broke the 60 degree mark. The current lake levels are just over 10 ¨ö feet below full pool. Water clarity is good, with a slight stain in some of the northern creeks. Do you think the fish are confused? Maybe we should ask our biologist friends at the DNR. The warming trend has not seemed to bother the fish, in fact they are moving around, chasing bait around their brush piles, and feeding on the abundance of threadfin. With caution, it appears that the fish are pulling away from the deeper brush piles going a little more shallow at 15 feet or less depths. This is generally an indication of warmer spring weather and the crappie preparing for the pre spawn. HOWEVER, there is probably a lot of cold weather yet to come, and with it, this trend will reverse. The channel docks remain excellent targets to use the shooting technique, or to get a minnow on a slip cork inside or close to a dock. Even with good fishing, it is still not smart to rely on one or two spots. We are catching a lot of fish, but we are also moving around a lot, what we call ¡°run and gun¡±. We had a great day on the water enjoying mild weather, beautiful scenery, great fishing and had the lake almost to ourselves. Take advantage of this while it lasts!

Stay safe on the water and wear your life jacket!

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 14.8 FEET, 50¡¯S & CLEAR

Spotted bass fishing is fair. On the main lake look for stumps and brush in 8 feet of water especially around points and humps that have deep water access. Small jigs in green pumpkin or Try the ¨ù oz. in watermelon gold any other color that looks like green pumpkin will work and put a matching Zoom trailer. Check those creeks and pockets for water with some color to it. Fish the numerous shallow brush piles with the jig. Some fish are surprisingly still shallow. On sunny days the dingy water will warm faster and attract bait fish so bass are likely to be there as well. The deep clear water naturally will be colder and the fish will be deeper. If you see shad flipping on top whip out that favorite crank bait, the one that looks like a ¨ù ounce Rat L Trap chrome with a blue back. Nice spotted bass have been schooling and busting the shad.

LAKE JACKSON IS DOWN .76 FEET, 50¡¯s

Bass fishing is fair. Go south towards the dam area and crank the new Shad Rap in the sexy shad pattern. Fish the channel ledges and the shallow areas around the points is where most of the active bass are. Use a good flexible rod and eight or ten pound test line for the best results. Work the deeper parts of the Alcovy River with Carolina rigs and both worms and lizards are working. The bite will be slow until we get more warm weather. Be patience with the retrieve. Also try the Rapala DT10

If the wind is blowing. The spots will move up and down throughout the day and cranking on and off won’t be a bad idea. Try the Fat Free Shad crank bait on the ledges and also have the Carolina rig ready with a green pumpkin Zoom trick worm.

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, LIGHT STAIN UP THE LAKE STAINED UP THE RIVER TEMPRATURE 52 55

Bass fishing is slow. If we have a couple of warm days in a row fish any place you can find some rocks. During the heat of the day the rocks will warm up a degree or two. A few fish will move into this area but you must fish with small baits and light line. If you find schools of baitfish use a Flex It Spoon on 10 pound test Trilene line with a medium action rod. Move your rod tip up 4 to 6 inches and let the bait fall back down. Be a line watcher, as your bites will come while the bait falls.

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

reeltime@bellsouth.net

Line side fishing is fair. Reports of a few hybrids and white bass are being caught up the Oconee River above the I 20 Bridge. Trolling with live bait over the creek channels is your best bet. A few are also being caught while using the spoon for bass down the lake.

Crappie fishing is fair. There are a few good fish being caught up the Apalachee River above Swords boat ramp. Trolling with a Jiffy Jig tipped with a minnow is working best. Watch your depth finder to see what depth the fish are holding.

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 6.5 FEET, CLEAR & 60¡¯S

Bass fishing is fair. The south end of the lake is the best fishing area this week. Ride the creek mouths with the Lowrance Structure Scan and find the old road beds or any old pond dam. The fish are there. Fish the mouths of all major coves and creeks around West Point Dam. Maple Creek, Veasey Creek and Stroud Creek are all good places to fish. The fish are bunched up together in 25 to 30 feet of water. There are schools of bass, hybrids and small white bass bunched up now. Use the vertical jigging spoons on the bottom. Find the fish on the Lowrance Down Scan and vertical jig using a 1/2 to 3/4 ounce spoon of your choice. The large mouth, whites, spots, hybrids and crappie are all bunched together. Some fishermen have had some success trolling for hybrids on the south end of the lake, but activity is relatively slow right now and will continue until the water begins to rise and warm.

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.

LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.3 FEET, CLEAR, 50¡¯S

Bass fishing is good as the warm trend continues. Riprap and other rocky banks are holding fish that are being caught with small to medium crank baits, jigs and soft plastics. But the shallow rocks should be located very near deeper water. Never overlook the dock patterns on the lake any time of the day. This lake has a lot of docks covered with brush. Some good cranking choices are a Shad Rap RS #5, Thunder Shad, Deep Little N, Rapala DT10 and Fat Free Shad #5 & #6 in the chartreuse, shad and silver patterns. Jigs should be in the ¨ù 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. Boat houses and docks along the main river or just inside the mouths of coves are holding some fish. Docks with lots of brush under and around them are the ones to look for.

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.

LAKE GEORGE IS FULL, 60¡¯S

Bass fishing is good as the water is warming due to the unseasonal weather and the abundance of sunlight. Jigs, lightweight Texas rigs, jerk baits and spinner baits are working. Many more fish are now showing up in deep water some in large schools. And they will bite sometime during each day. Depths are mostly ranging from 15 to 20 feet deep. Look for bass on the sides of main river points and flats. The key, as with shallow fish, is to find the best bait for that moment in time. Lowrance Down Scan technology can scan much wider areas with the narrow beams so anglers can see the bait, the structure and the fish four times better than with sonar. Find the bait and you will find the fish. Jigging spoons like a .6 Flex It, Hopkins Shorty 45 and Bomber Slab spoon have all worked well recently. Chrome, white, and chartreuse are the best colors to try along with gold during cloud cover. Crank baits like a Norman DD22, Mann¡¯s 20 Plus, Rapala DT14, and Poe¡¯s 400 can all produce. Other baits to try are a jig head and finesse worm, Carolina rig, drop shot rig and jig and trailer.
