Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 10/6/18

What is generally a great time of year is being over-powered by extreme heat and seasonally
unprecedented averages way above normal. The daily catch this time of year is really-down
as the bass remain extremely subdued by the lack of oxygen in the water. Sure, we are having
some success and I expect any day for the bite to pick up but so far you just got to take what
you can get and enjoy the fishing.

The best bites for me are still the frog bite, patience, persistence and ability to take the heat
are the key to making it work. If you persist your SPRO frog will put some good fish in the
boat daily. My next best bait this week came on Tight-Line Swim jig just really twitching and
working it around grass trying to get a reaction from the fish. Lastly the Missile Bait ‘48’ stick
bait rigged weight-less is producing around the grass.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to put you on fish and make
sure you have a great time on the water. I have days and guides available to fish with you.
We fish with great sponsor products, Ranger Boats, Lowrance Electronics, Vicious Fishing,
T&H marine products, Boat Logix Mounts, Navionics mapping, 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.
