Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 8/19/17

If history repeats itself we will see a slow down for a few days maybe a week around the end
of the summer and by the middle of September fishing will be really strong. I don’t know why
but in checking my history mid-August seems to be a slow period just before we start seeing
some cooling temperatures and short dead period before we return to greatness.

Having said that I had a couple of really good days for numbers this past week and one day
where I couldn’t get a bite. There is no doubt the frog bite will continue to get better the
grass is just setting up to be a banner frog year. It’s also been a fact that my patterns of fish in
the 8 to 13 ft. range has held up really well, you can’t always get them to bite but seeing
them on your Lowrance Structure scan has been good. Worms, D-Bombs, “48” and SPRO baby
Little John crank baits are my best baits at the moment.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see that you have a great
day on the water. I have days and guides available all year long we fish with great sponsor
baits like Picasso Lures, T&H Marine products, Power Pole, Vicious, Duckett and more.

Don’t forget to get your registration in for the 10/7/17 SPRO frog tournament, there is a cutoff
date where they won’t take entries so get signed up now on

    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.
