Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 8/18/18

It appears we are heading into a cooler period than normal with night-time temperatures
dropping into the 60’s; this should bring us an early frog bite and move the fall fishing ahead
of some of the past seasons. Look for the fall bite to bring us some great fishing earlier this
year and make September a month to remember on Guntersville.

This past week was somewhat a testament to the activity picking up with the frog bite
starting to really pick up and the top water bite in general picking up all over the lake. The
SPRO popping frog seems to be the correct choice as the grass is not heavy in many areas
allowing you to walk the popping frog over the open areas. Lilly pads and small grass patches
were key, just keep moving until you find the active area and work it thoroughly. Picasso buzz
baits caught some fish also, especially out on the channel edges over the drops. Fish 3 ft. to
15 ft. grass areas and you will find the frog bite.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great time
on the water. This is my 21st season of guiding no one does it better. I have guides and days
available to fish with you. We fish with great sponsor products, Lowrance Electronics, Boat
Logix mounts, T&H marine products, Vicious Line, Duckett Fishing, 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.
