Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 9/2/17

This past week produced one of the best days for numbers of fish I have had this year, we lost
count catching fish after fish and doubling up many times during the outing. It’s not often
during this time of year that we have days like this but cool rainy days and movement by the
fish really helped the cause.

We basically caught fish in the 10 ft. range and were successful with a few baits, the SPRO
frog was on the first hour or so and when we felt that bite ran its course we went to the
Missile bait “48” stick bait weighted lightly and really got into the numbers as we progressed
through the day.

The wind picked up and when it did we went back to spinner baits catching
good numbers on it also, using Punisher ½ or ¾ oz. spinner baits with gold willow leaf blades.
The bite was strong and the fish were as active as I have seen them in a while.

This fall will be some of the best fishing of the year, I have guides and days available all fall
long and we are looking forward to fishing with you. My team is licensed USCG Captains and
are experienced on lake Guntersville.

Come fish with us no one will treat you better or work
harder to see you have a great day on the water. We fish with great sponsor products,
Duckett rods and reels, Vicious Line, Ranger Boats, T&H marine products and more.

CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 6.6 FEET, 80’S

Bass fishing is good. The bigger, more active bass have begun to move back to the primary lake points with some holding on to the secondary points in the larger coves. Use the Number Five Jointed Shad Rap. The Rat L Traps are also putting bass in the boat along with the trick worms in green pumpkin. Fish any wood and rocks during this period. Boat docks are still holding bass during the mid-day period when the sun is out and the sky is blue. A slow presentation seems to be working the best during these hard to fish periods. 7.5 Culprit in green or moccasin is a good bait to try after the sun is up. Expect a good early morning bite and it will slow down as the sun comes over the treetops. Try the Alabama rig with small Zoom pearl fluke trailers out on the main lake points.

LAKE LANIER IS DOWN 6.4 FEET, THE CREEKS ARE STAINED AND THE MAIN LAKE IS CLEAR & 80’s

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

Bass fishing on Lanier remains very good. The lake level has been stable over the past week, and the water temps are on the rise with the warmer June weather. The top water bite is still strong. To sum it up, if it walks, pops, spits, wakes, chugs, or swims, it is a viable choice catch fish right now. Focus on offshore structure with cover, such as brush on humps and points, for this approach. The bite seems to be better in the middle of the day than any other time, but we have are still seeing some good morning schooling activity again this week as well, for which the top water lures have been excellent. Just throw it in the action and hang on. Windblown points have been the best places for this action. The fluke has continued to produce well also in the same type places. Work it fast and then kill it and let it settle. Vary the cadence until you find what the fish want. The fluke can be a good option when there is no wind. Also the swimbait bite has returned and has been producing some good fish. We have been using the Sweet Herring and a Sebile. Same places as mentioned for the top water bite. We are starting to get some drop shot bites as well. This has been a decent option for us when the fish will not come up to play. Here are my remaining available June dates: 19(PM), 20(PM), 21(PM), 22, 28, and 29. Father’s Day is coming up this weekend! What better gift to give Dad than a fishing trip with Jimbo?! Call me to purchase a gift certificate. Give me a call and let’s get out and have some fun

I am now guiding in a Brand New Xpress Bass Boat 21’3″ 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! As I mentioned, if you are wanting to learn the deep timber bite and/or the ditch bite, now is the time!

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

Striper fishing is good. Summer time fishing has arrived. The thermocline is set up at 26 feet with the water temperature in the low 80’s. The shallow water techniques, both top water and free lines have slowed. Down rod herring fished 30 to 50 feet deep has been the ticket this week. It is time to put your lead core and umbrella rods in the boat and use them in the creek and river channels to get a reaction bite from those 25 35 foot suspended fish. Deploy your lead core to 7 to 8 colors with a one ounce buck tail jigs and a pearl or chartreuse 4 inch shad body. Don’t forget to allow enough room to make a wide sweeping turn; your jig is a football field behind the boat. Increasing your speed to 5 or 6 MPH will also keep your jig out of the trees when making a U turn. If you want to fish while you are searching an area the umbrella rig is always a good choice. When you find the stripers, you can pull umbrella rigs up and put out baits or continue to use you umbrella rigs to catch fish. We are setting our rigs at 150 feet behind the boat at 3 Mph. Look for the fish to be at a depth of 25 to 70 feet deep over a bottom of 40 to 120 feet. There are fish in every creek from Browns Bridge to the Dam. Start your search in the main lake and creek mouths from the mouth of the Chestatee River to Vans Tavern. The lake is 6.5 feet below full pool and the water is clear on the main lake and lightly stained in the back of the creeks. The water temperature has risen to the low 80’s.

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

As expected, crappie fishing around this time of year is becoming fair at best with water temperatures around 86 degrees. Your best bet for catching fish is early in the morning, on deep docks and deep brush piles. Expect this pattern to remain the same until you see a combination of a change in the temperature and cooler rain. This will bring the fish to shallower structure, thus making them easier to catch. This is a good time of the year to work on your brush piles, which will give you more spots to fish when the weather cools and the bite heats up. If you are interested, visit our website above where we have posted links to several YOU Tube videos on the subject. Night fishing is good right now. Target bridges such as Clark’s Bridge, Wahoo Bridge and Six Mile Bridge. All have one good thing in common: they are in sight of a boat ramp, which is convenient when launching. You will need some type of twelve volt light such as a Hydro Glow. For best results, keep the light a few feet away from your boat. This can be accomplished by using a broom stick or some type of rod. After submerging the light, attach the cord to the rod, leaving just enough slack in the cord for the light to stay submerged. Place the other end in the rod holder. This will keep the light several feet from the boat and give you better coverage, and keeps it from banging against the boat and spooking the fish. Small or medium crappie minnows are your best bet for bait. Set your baits at different depths, and if you notice one depth is getting more action, adjust accordingly. The bite is sporadic. You may wait an hour or so for the fish to come after the bait and hit them good for thirty minutes or so, then you may wait another hour or so for another school to come by and start the bite again. This requires patience, but is a great opportunity to kick back and relax during an evening on the water.

This will be last report for summer. Around the end of August, when the fishing pattern begins to change, we will pick back up with Lake Lanier Crappie Fishing Reports. Enjoy your summer, and be safe on the water as the lake is now crowded! Wear your life jacket, it can save your life!

Be safe on the water as the lake traffic has increased to summer levels; wear your life jacket, it can save your life!

LAKE ALLATOONA IS FULL, 80’S, CLEAR

This Lake Allatoona Bass fishing report is by Matt Driver

Bass fishing has been good, even though we had a few slow days this past week, but is definitely getting better. Several good fish being caught on Jig head finesse worms and small jigs. Shallow to mid depth brush has been key. There is also some schooling activity just before dark. We have been catching them on big bite jerk minnows and spy baits. The water is clear main lake/south and has a slight stain to it on the north end toward the river. If you plan to go early in the morning, a small Zara spook, or a Popper style top water bait is a fun option till around 9 AM. The bite will slow drastically after that, and spots of shade will become good targets.

This Lake Allatoona Fishing Guides Report has been brought to you by Robert Eidson of First Bite Guide Service, 770 827 6282 www.firstbiteguideservice.com Lake Allatoona, Georgia email: eidson6260@att.net www.firstbiteguideservice.com

Line side fishing is good. The bite that was so strong mid lake is starting to slow down compare to last week due to the full moon. The fish are starting to move off the flats and humps and are starting to school out over the river and creek channels. This week we have caught fish as deep as 50 feet. Down lining live bait is your best bet right now. Look for these big schools to start to move south as the water warms into the mid eighty’s. Top water is Slow!!!! There is limited top water action right at sun up. But you have to be in the right place at the right time. It really isn’t worth targeting yet. Trolling is fair at best, but should heat up in the upcoming weeks.

LAKE JACKSON IS DOWN .70 FEET, 80’S

Bass fishing is fair. A buzz bait fished on the sea walls and rip rap at first light is still a good way to start your day. Keep a trick worm ready as a backup bait if the fish miss the buzz bait. Next move to the boat docks in water from 5 feet to 10 feet deep and work a shaky head under these docks. Some fish are starting to show up on the humps on the south end of the lake. Most of these fish are in the 8 to 12 foot range. A jig fished in the structure can produce a good fish. Crazy leg Chigger Craw bin black and blue color can get some extra bites. Crank baits fished on the bridge rip rap when Georgia Power is pulling water will also produce fish.

LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, THE LAKE IS CLEAR ON THE SOUTH END STAINED TO MUDDY UP THE LAKE AND INTO THE RIVER TEMPRATURE 81 86

Bass fishing is fair. You can catch a lot of fish just on the small side with worms under docks. Use a dark worm Texas rigged for best results. The buzz bait bite at first light has been picking up all week. Look along any sea wall from the middle of the creeks and coves to the back. You can also use a silver black or shad pattern shad rap. Some fish are starting to move onto the deep water humps late in the day and you can catch them with a Carolina rig green worm. Also large crank baits fished off of the south end humps will produce. Use your Lowrance to locate the humps with fish on them then target the hump with the Carolina rig or the crank bait.

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

reeltime@bellsouth.net

Striper fishing is good. Use your Lowrance to locate the schools of fish in the mouths of the coves and on the humps on the south end of the lake. Live bait (shad) have been the best over the past week. You can also pick up some fish on the pipeline with a spoon when Georgia Power is pulling water. Early morning the spoon bite at the dam has started.

Crappie fishing is very good. The fish are moving into the timber on a early summer pattern. Long lining jigs over timber from 8 to 15 feet deep have been the best producers over the past week. Match your color to the color of the water.

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 Service at 404 803 0741 or reeltime@bellsouth.net

WEST POINT LAKE IS FULL, 80’S

Bass fishing is fair. The top water bite is good and jerk baits remain a good follow up bait along with flukes. Main lake points and secondary points continue to produce good size bass, but don’t forget to fish the sides of these points as well. The Carolina rig is another good method that has been very productive this past week. Don’t spend too much time in one area as anglers are having to move about the lake to catch a good limit. Zoom motor oil red power worm color can get some extra bites.

3/8 ounce Booyah silver shad tandem willow spinnerbait will work on the active feeding periods. Top water can work anytime of the day. Zara Spooks, buzz baits and even Pop R’s are working. The bass will bite floating worms or lizards, spinner baits, stick baits, live lizards and top water lures. No more than two good keepers are coming from one point or area. The Zoom trick worm in almost any color will get strikes and use light 8 pound Sufix Siege line on a spinning reel on a Mustad 2/0 hook.

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. Fish this for 300 yards and there are stumps and old wood all the way to the back of the creek.

LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.6 FEET, CLEAR, 80’S

Bass fishing is good. Fish are still scattered all over the lake. There is still a good shallow bite going on in the pockets in 3 to 6 feet of water in both Little River and the Oconee River. Chartreuse colored buzz baits and spinner baits will catch fish around wood cover and sea walls for the first hour of the morning. Try the Strike King Redeye Shad Bait gold black back 0.25 ounce. For the remainder of the morning, throw a Bass Hound square bill crank bait around lay down trees and docks near the mouth of spawning pockets. Midday when the bite slows down, it is time to move out deep or skip plastics under shady docks. A 3/16 ounce Buckeye spot remover with a green pumpkin Zoom trick worm has been best for catching fish under the docks. Make sure to get your bait as far under the docks as possible. A Strike King 6xd crank bait in a sexy shad color and a Carolina rigged Zoom trick worm will catch fish on the offshore points and humps. These fish will be in 15 to 18 feet of water on these offshore structures.

LAKE GEORGE IS DOWN 1.77 FEET, 80’S

Bass fishing is fair during the day and head up the rivers for cooler water and the fish are a little more active. The bass are off the river points and stump rows. Try the River2Sea Dahlberg Clackin’ Crayfish 90. Flipping a dark Zoom U tail on a Texas rig greens on wood and brush very tight bank and river structure, can draw a strike. Later in the day, try casting or flipping the river docks and shallow bank with a Zoom motor oil lizard. Main lake docks and sea walls are fair and a buzz bait early and late. Night fishing is fair with the Texas rigged red or black worms on any dock with lights. On the warmer afternoons, you can see bass cruising in the backs of many pockets. Spinnerbaits, crank baits, jerk baits and jigs will work but the spinnerbait is a great all day bait.
