Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 8/20/16

It appears to me that the week of overcast days and rain, did little to help the fishing; in fact
the best time we had on the water was when the sun came out more towards the midday;
strange for sure but somewhat typical as the month of August progresses to late August.

The good news is the water temperature seems to have dropped some; there is icky dead looking
grass appearing in many areas of the lake and this is generally a good sign for the future or
the end of August.

I always start to see great improvement when the shorter days start to cool the water
temperature; the best of the fall is close. Spent a lot of time looking for the SPRO frog bite
and I must say there is frog action already indicating that the fall top water bite will get
better shortly. My Tight-Line swim jig appears to have dropped this past week, maybe we will
see that pick back up also.

Work slow, look for bait fish and work an area thoroughly when
you get a bite as the fish are grouped up; so when you find them don’t leave them.

Come fish with me I have days and guides available to fish with you; no one will treat you
better or work harder to see you have a great time on the water. I have licensed USCG
experienced guides and we can meet most requests to fish when needed.

    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.
