Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 1/21/17

I must admit this warming trend has been very unusual even for the deep-south in the middle
of January. The water temperatures are in the high 50’s and even some 60 degree water, with
all this the bass are fat and looking very much like they could jump on the bed any day. The
last time we had this warm of a winter as I recall was 2007 and the grass got so thick in early
March that the ability to fish the lake became real limited because of it. We need some
normal weather to get back to the traditional bite of February and March.

Fishing seems up and down with not a lot of numbers but when you catch a fish its good size
and thick looking like footballs; the number of bites is not great but you can hang a monster. I
spent most of the week fishing SPRO Aruka shad rattle baits, Picasso Shock Blade chatter
baits, Tight-Line swim jigs and Missile Bait swim baits rigged on the jig. The fish were hard to
come by but as I said the size was encouraging. If there was a key for me it was finding bait
balls, when I did I found some bites!

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great time
on the water. If this weather continues it’s going to turn on like a light switch so being on the
water could really pay some great results. I have days and guides available to fish with you;
we fish with great sponsor products; Lowrance electronics, Navionics charts, T&H Marine
Products, Vicious Fishing, Duckett rods and reels and more. A new sponsor for me is Python
electronics mounts you ought to see this front bow mount, it is the strongest most secure
mount I have ever used.

    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.
