Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 5-21-16

This past week along with the month of May has been some of best fishing this year; yes the numbers are not where they were in past years but this past week was really good for size and numbers compared to others weeks and months so far this year. It’s different and certainly challenging but persistence is paying off and the fish are active enough that it is really a lot of fun.

I have changed up baits a little this past week working a ½ oz. Punisher “Hail Mary” rigged with a Missile Bait D-Bomb in 6 to 15 ft. of water. We are also still fishing my faithful Tight-Line swim jig in ½ oz. with a Missile Bait Shock Wave Swim Bait as my main two baits. I am still working to find a consistent deep crank bait bite as this has not really evolved this year as it has other times on a daily basis. We are catching some fish on the SPRO Little John crank Bait but as stated it’s not everywhere.

Come fish with me no will treat you better; there is still some great fishing ahead the summer time heat is not here yet and this will keep fishing really good until the water really warms up and the grass thickens. I have guides and days available to fish with you; we fish with great sponsor baits, Duckett rods, Vicious Line, Punisher Lures, Picasso Lures products and more.

    Both environmental and animal rights factions have criticized bass fishing in recent years for being both harmful to native species and cruel to the bass themselves. Most bass are no longer caught for sustenance, but simply as a sport, and largemouth bass are generally let go after the catch.;:

      Ms. Bertozzi, I can respect that you have an opinion and have the privilege of expressing it. Do you think that expressing those views on a website about fishing is going to win over anyone? I know that that there are many so-called “sportmen” that are harmful to the environment, wildlife, and perception of fishing. I consider myself a steward and caretaker of the land. I practice it and I have taught my son to respect the land. I do not believe fishing nor hunting to be a deliberately cruel act. Humans have been doing it for thousands of years, and humans will not all go vegan simultaneously overnight. I catch and release as a sport because the practice was born out of conservation. Just as much as you would find it objectionable, I would still like to take a person like you fishing sometime. I want to to see the inescapable smile that would light up your face as you caught your first fish and then release it back into the water. It is a cherished experience. Despite our differences, I wish you peace.
