Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 1/31/16

As I have stated too many of my friends I am going to try and start my journey back from my surgery and back on the water fishing. Today I started that process as I spent a couple of hours on the water in a friends boat just kind of hanging out and trying to see if I could tolerate the boat. It wasn’t easy but I did ok so more to come; little steps and hope for the best!

Fishing was tough for most that hit the water today, seems the cold water temps are locking up the fish. With the water temps around 46 degrees you would think that the fish are moving to the deeper edges and finding them in groups would be the ticket, not so a bite here and there so a little frustrating. It’s winter folks and the bite is slow but the quality should be good for size. Keep working jigs, jerk baits, traps and swim baits eventually it will pay off.

I am booking out for the spring with myself and my guides we have days available to fish with you, no one will treat you better!

    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.
