Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 4/16/16

Well if you didn’t like 30 mph winds out of the NNW you got to experience them out of the ESE; I am sure it made you feel better or maybe not! The past 3 weeks we have just been hammed by strong winds and spending day fishing was challenging because of it. Sure we caught fish but it was some of the most aggravating times on the water I have spent in quite a while.

The bass are still very much staging waiting for the water to get a little warmer I don’t believe we have seen the best of the spawn yet, and because of it bites are still at a premium and missing can really hurt your day. We spent most of the week fishing 3 to 6 feet of water with some spotted moves to the deeper water checking for post spawn fish. If the best of the spawn is over Guntersville is in trouble, I have just got to think we are behind but this week should really make a difference with the weather warming up considerable.

Baits for the week have not changed a whole lot with Tight-Line Swim jigs, leading the way with most of the bites rigged with Missile Bait Shock Wave swim baits; we did add SPRO crank baits to the everyday baits with their Baby Little John DD 60 catching several fish in 7 to 9 ft. of water.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better, I have days and guides available to fish with you!

    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.
