Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 10/15/16

The change from the beginning of the week to the end was extremely noticeable; we
struggled for bites early in the week then a light came on and the last few days were really
much better. I think the water temperature has equalized where the bottom which was
much warmer has cooled significantly and now we have water temps all through the water
tables into the low to mid 70’s.

The other noticeable change from the early part of the week was the number of bites; one
day we either caught a fish or missed one at every stop we made making the day extremely
enjoyable; at least we had our chances all day long to catch fish. It looks like the buzz bait bite
might be heating up for the first time this fall as well as some of the traditional chase baits
that we have been using.

My choice has been my go to bait; Tight-Line swim jigs, Missile bait
Shock Wave swim baits, Picasso Lures buzz baits, along with Punisher spinner baits.

I think we are headed for the best month this fall with November being what might be our
make-up-month for the fall bite. Come fish with me I have guides and days available to fish
with you; no one will treat you better. I have days and licensed USCG guides with many years
of experience on Lake Guntersville!

    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.
