Lake Guntersville Weekly Fishing Report from Captain Mike Gerry

Guntersville Winter Bass


Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 4/17/2021


Extremely weird year for Guntersville as we are back below normal temperatures pushing the
fish back out some from their normal patterns. Not all bad as fishing is good the activity has
been great, but the fish have relocated once again as the temperature change always put
them out off the drops as we try to gain stability again in where they are located.


We have stuck to typical plastic baits in most cases fishing Missile Bait 48 stick baits, DBombs, and some traditional lizards off the edges. In most cases the bite requires you to fish
slow bite as always there are fish in many stages and we did catch some fish on Picasso
spinner baits, Picasso chatter baits, and Tight-Line jigs and swim jigs every day.


Come fish with me I have days and guides available to fish with you no one will treat you
better or work harder to see you have a great day on the water. We fish with great sponsor
products Ranger Boats, Dawson Boat Center, Mercury Motors, Boat Logix mounts, Vicious
Fishing, Duckett Fishing, SPRO, Lews Fishing, Power Pole and more.

Captain Mack’ Lake Lanier Fishing Report

From Captain Mack Farr

Nice Lanier striper

January in February continued last week,
lots of rain and wind to contend with,
making fishing tough. The long term
forecast calls for moderating weather in the
coming week, and hopefully the fish will
respond accordingly. Add in a full moon on
the 27th and it could make for a very good
bite.

The lake level came up, and many
parts of the lake muddied up as well, but
that will be to your advantage as the new
muddy water moderates. The lake level as
of Friday afternoon was 1069.96, 1.04 feet
below full pool, up .22 feet from last week.
The surface temps went the opposite
direction of the lake level and dropped
slightly to 47 degrees.


Striper Fishing

After a brief glimpse of spring, last week’s
cool down squelched some of the activity in
the backs of the creeks. I think those
patterns will reemerge soon with the
pending weather forecast. The stained water in the rivers and creek backs should warm quickly,
attracting the bait and the gamefish right behind them. Until then, many of the Stripers are still in
the creeks around the bait schools, over a 30 to 70 foot bottom, basically the same patterns/
places we have utilized for several weeks now. Use the mud lines where applicable, the activity
will often be best around the color change is most pronounced. Of course the smaller creeks,
and the coves that did not experience an influx of new water will remain stable and fish in those
areas are probably still hanging around.


A mix of free lines, down lines, and planer boards will still be applicable, and a little weight on
the planers and free lines has been a plus. Keeping a Mini Mack in the spread is also beneficial,
either as a flat line or behind the Perfect Planer. Herring, Trout, Shad and Shiners have all been
productive, and give the Stripers a mix until you see a preference. Don’t rule out using spoons
and dead sticking jigs to catch these deeper fish, both of these techniques should remain viable
methods for a last a couple more weeks.


You will have plenty of stained water areas to fish, and you may be able to use this to your
advantage. This stained water will often warm quickly and the Stripers are not hesitant to
venture into the of colored water. Basically if the bait is there the Stripers will likely be there as
well. I think that the fish in the stained water are often easier to catch, especially with artificials.
Casting a bait to the banks while you are pulling the live baits will often be very productive.
Small jigs, 3/8 1/4 and 1/2 oz, Flukes on a lead head, flukes on a weighted keel hook are also
excellent choices.


Bass Fishing


The Bass bite is still pretty good, the difficulty is dealing with the changing water conditions and
fish movement. There are many patterns producing, and also many baits that are effective. The
deeper patterns I think offer more consistency, particularly after last weeks inconsistent weather.


Look for the pre-spawn bite to ramp up with the improving weather, and the shallow patterns
that really were starting to develop should become reenergized. Fish moving into the creek
backs, up on clay banks and points should respond quickly to the Rock Crawlers and Rapala
DT’s, along with spinnerbaits and jerk baits. Until then, deep brush, rock bluffs, rocky points,
ditches and drains are all likely areas to target. The depth range is also wide, 20 to 40 feet, so
try and narrow that down as your day progresses.

One of last week’s patterns, fishing the creek backs, drains and ditches is still a productive
pattern. The ditches and drains may be the best choice, because they do not get the influx of
new water like the creek channels. The fish on these structures may also be using a big depth
range, but generally moving into the shallow end of that range early, getting deeper as the day
progresses.

Cast green and brown pattern jigs with Hula grubs or twin tails, the smaller Keitechs
on a lead heads, or the worms on a Shakey Head. Super Spoons also remain productive on the
deeper fish, especially in areas where the bait is layered up on the bottom.
Our best bite may arguably be fishing after dark. Lights, both submerged and above water
lights, are holding some good numbers of fish with some big fish, both Largemouths and Spots.
The night bite is not limited to fishing lights, with some fish roaming around points and reef
poles. With improving weather, night fishing may be more appealing, and the full moon may also
benefit this pattern as well. Flukes, small buck tails, and Keitechs on the lead heads are
effective on the lights, as are pitching live Herring. Jerk baits and crank baits are effective on the
points and reef poles. As a bonus, you’ll probably get some Stripers off the lights to help keep
you awake.


Good Fishing!

Captain Mack’s Lake Hartwell Fishing Report

Thanks to Nathan Key, Shad Slinger Charters, for updating the Striper side of the report. On the Bass side,
Randy at Lake Hartwell Fishing and Marine provided the Bass fishing report.!

No surprise that the lake level
rose with recent rains, up .93 feet from last week to 658.14 as of Wednesday Evening, 1.86 Feet below full
pool. The Hartwell Lake level as of Wed was 657.21, 2.79 feet below full pool.


Striper/Hybrid Fishing


The Striper/Hybrid bite overall has been fair, the turbulent weather has spread the fish out, and will most likely
continue to keep the fish scattered out until our next period of good weather. Speaking of good weather, it’s on
the horizon(see the Bass Report for the weather report) so watch the forecast and plan accordingly.

The bite
this week has been a little bit of a grind with frequent moves being the rule and putting together singles to
make a good string of fish. Down lines and free lines are effective, and the smaller baits seem to be preferred.
Many of the fish are roaming in the middle parts of the creeks, generally over a 40 to 50 feet bottom. Place the
down lines 30 to 35, adjusting levels based on what the sonar shows. Start the free lines at 80 feet back, and
use a very small Split with the wind makes speed control and issue. With the fish being so scattered do not be
concerned if you are not seeing big groups of fish. Finding the good bait concentrations is a big part of finding
the fish, and even if you do not mark lots of fish, deploy the spread when you see the bait and let the fish come
to you.


As always keep an eye on the birds, most of this week they were not much help as they seemed to be focused
on being on the leeward side of something and avoiding being blown back to the coast. Nonetheless, they can
be very beneficial in locating fish and use them accordingly. Watch them closely, and you’ll learn when they
are on fish, or spending you on a Goose chase They also do not have to be right on the water to signify fish.
Often, high Flying Gulls see fish down in the water, they are just waiting for them to push the bait up to the
surface.

Bass Fishing


Bass Fishing has been fair and last week’s return to winter seems to have set the fish on their heels somewhat.
Deeper structures have been the best producer, with a few shots at shallow fish responding to the sun warmed
rocks and bridge pillars. We have plenty of stained water now, and that will probably be very beneficial with
some warming weather.

The long term forecast indicates a period of warmer temps beginning in the middle of
next week! Expect the fish to react quickly and pull up onto shallow structures. Until then, Ditches, drains,
long flat points, and deeper docks will produce some good catches. Football Head jigs tipped with chunks and
twin tails, blade baits and Fish Heads are all good choices for these structures. Finesse worms on the drop shot,
and Weedless Wonders tipped with Small Senkos and Roboworm Alive Shads are effective, particular in post
frontal conditions.


Good Fishing!

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 9/21/19

With my truck being repaired from someone hitting it at a ramp and of course the culprit not
owning up to it; my report will be somewhat second hand; but have no fear I have it back and
will be back on the water next week. It appears the top water bite remained strong and so
did the worm fishing. Although size was hard to come bye as it generally is in the late summer
numbers were good.

Baits being used this week, top water mainly pop-r’s, Zara spooks, and Picasso buzz baits, on
the bottom we have mainly fished small worms like Missile bait ‘48” stick baits in 8 to 10 feet
of water.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better or work harder to see you have a great day on
the water. I have guides and days available to fish with you. We fish with great sponsor
products Lowrance Electronics, Ranger Boats, Mercury motors, Boat Logix mounts, Vicious

CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 8.2 FEET, HIGH 60’S

Bass fishing is good. The shad and herring schools are now forming all over the lake. Good size blue backs have been spotted up on the flats and larger points and in the rivers. Locate the bigger bass by trolling slowly with Down Deep Husky Jerks along the channel ledges and just off the humps out on the main lake. The smaller bass are moving up into the shallows and a variety of baits are catching them. Keep a pearl Super Fluke ready all day. The Rapala #5 Shad Raps and Rapala DT6’s are working as the fish are feeding and busting the banks and points. Fish the Savannah River and hit every point and secondary point you come across. Spend a little time looking at the points and underwater islands with the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology to find baitfish in these area before fishing. This will help narrow down where the fish are. Watch for schooling bait fish. A good top water bait like a Chug Bug or Skitter Walk needs to be kept handy and ready to use at all times. The windy days will be the best days to fish. Crawfish are in big numbers now so take your time and pick your colors wisely. Rattling’ Raps are great baits to use up in the Little River. Find the rocks and make your casts up in the shallow water.

LAKE LANIER IS DOWN 5.4 FEET, THE CREEKS ARE STAINED AND THE MAIN LAKE IS CLEAR & HIGH 60’S

The East Bank ramp will be closed November 14th, 15th and 16th for the deer hunt.

This Bass fishing report brought to you by: Jimbo Mathley, www.jimboonlanier.com 770 542 7764

The cooler weather has dropped the surface temperatures 3 degrees and the lake has come up .2 feet since my last report. The fishing has improved since last week, which is great news for all of us. The stable weather projected over the next 10 days should really make for some consistent fishing in the upcoming days. The fish are still spread out both in the mouths of the creeks and further back in as well. The schooling bite has been strong this week both just after daylight and near dusk in the creek mouths and further back in these areas as well. Most of the activity appears to be around points and humps, but there is also plenty of over the channel schooling as well. After the schooling subsides, we are still running some points and humps with brush, but they are not holding fish nearly as well as they had been. We have started to work some steeper rock as well as docks in the creek pockets for some bites. A Sebile and a Vixen are working pretty well on the schooling fish. If the fish are chasing smaller bait fish or you are having a hard time getting the fish to commit to your top water and swimbait offerings, try a spy bait. Count it down and work it slowly. A Chug Bug has worked for top water on some days as well. Spend a little time looking at the points and underwater islands with the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology to find baitfish in these area before fishing. This will help narrow down where the fish are. A Picasso Shakedown Head with a finesse worm is starting to produce; and I’m happy to report a jig bite is starting as well. I do love a jig bite. With the warmer weather once again upon us, we should see the schooling bite hang around for a while, which is fun! Here is a list of my upcoming open dates in November: 8, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 28, 29, and 30. Also, if you want a trip over Thanksgiving Week, please contact me NOW. Those dates always go fast. Give me a call and let’s get out and have some fun! Thanks to all and May God Bless.

Striper fishing is fair but improving. The water temperature has cooled off to 65 degrees and the top water activity has picked up. The action is fast and the Stripers do not stay on the surface very long. A 5/8 ounce Captain Mack’s buck tail jig with a fluke continues to work well. Your traditional top water baits like Spooks, Red fins and Chug Bugs will also work. You can also use a light spinning rod to pitch a blueback Herring into a school of feeding Stripers for some exciting action. If you are having trouble getting to the fish before they move off try deploying free lines and planner boards and troll the area you last saw the fish. Always keep someone on the front deck casting a buck tail jig or top water bait. This approach takes patience as you have to resist chasing the fish with the big motor. The second approach is to fish the creeks with the greatest concentration of bait. Spend a little time looking at the points and underwater islands with the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology to find baitfish in these area before fishing. This will help narrow down where the fish are. Deploy weighted free lines and planner boards in addition to a couple of down rods. Look for schooling fish in the main lake channel and pockets from Flat Creek to Dam. There are also fish in the North end creeks and both rivers. The water temperature is in the mid 60’s.The water is lightly stained in the creeks and clear on the main lake.

This Lake Lanier Crappie report is from Dan Saknini, member of the Lanier Crappie Angler’s Club. See our club’s website, www.laniercrappieanglers.net

Current water temperature is around 68 degrees. This is ideal for crappie fishing. Many of our club members are taking advantage of the comfortable temperatures and have been sending us excellent reports and pictures of their catches. At every meeting, we share information and tips, and our newer members are capitalizing on that and seeing great results. It’s all about time on the water, and networking will help you improve your catches. Our catches are mainly coming from deeper, stand-alone brush piles, from the middle of the creeks all the way to the backs of the creeks. A helpful tip: when you are looking at your electronics, pay attention to the concentration of bait in these pockets. The bait will lead you to the fish. On a calm day, use the lightest jig you can, as low as one thirty second ounce jig heads. When the wind starts to pick up, use a heavier jig head, up to one sixteenth ounce. If you know that there are fish on the brush piles and you feel that they are not cooperating, ease up directly above the brush pile with your electric motor on the lowest speed setting, and practice vertical jigging. Let your jig fall into the brush pile and start reeling slowly. Yes, you will lose a few jigs, but it can be very rewarding. This time of year, use the jig color you have the most confidence in, as color does not seem to matter, rather the presentation of the jig. Use the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology to find baitfish in these area before fishing. This will help narrow down where the fish are.

LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 3.6 FEET, HIGH 60’S

This Lake Allatoona Bass fishing guides report is from Matt Driver.
Bass fishing is good. Thirty to 40 fish days are not uncommon. This month fish are feeding, and we will see a good bit of schooling activity. As the water temperatures cool into the 60s and possibly toward the 50s by the end of the month, this is a great time to throw the jerk bait. We are using the Spro McStick in both the small and large sizes. It is good to target windblown rocky banks in creeks off the main lake. Spend a little time looking at the points and underwater islands with the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology to find baitfish in these area before fishing. This will help narrow down where the fish are. We use a medium action spinning rod with 10 pound Sunline Sniper fluorocarbon. Until water temperatures drop, use a very erratic retreat. You will catch spotted bass, hybrids and white bass. There is also a good crankbait bite, as well. This time of year, it is also very productive fishing a jig and a Picasso shaky head with a Big Bite green pumpkin finesse worm. There are still a good many fish on bluff walls. Most of these fish will remain there all year long. So if fishing gets slow, try these areas. Don’t forget that November is also a great month for an early morning buzz bait bite along the same bluff walls.

This Lake Allatoona fishing guides report for striper and hybrids has been brought to you exclusively by Robert Eidson of First Bite Guide Service, 770 827 to 6282. www.firstbiteguideservice.com Lake Allatoona, Georgia email: eidson6260@att.net

Line side fishing is good. The bite is starting to improve and will only get better as we enter into November. The sea gulls should be showing up in the next week or two and this will make finding the white fish a little easier on all of us. Right now we are spending most of our time on the north end of the lake. Free lines and planner boards early and down lines after the sun gets up. After that trolling umbral rigs and using jigging spoons we be the key to catching numbers on Allatoona for the next few weeks. The best bite going right now is from Little River to the S turns and then there is a secondary bite from Kellogg’s to Bartow Carver beach. That bite is hit and miss right now. And will remain that away until the mid section of the lake completely turns overs. Spend a little time looking at the points and underwater islands with the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology to find baitfish in these area before fishing. This will help narrow down where the fish are. Most of the fish we are catching right now are 18 to 24 feet deep. And can be found on points, humps and flats early. And after the sun comes up your best bet will be out over the river channel. The top water bite right now is decent. But look for it to pick up in early November. November is one of my favorite months to fish Allatoona. Remember to be universal when it comes to techniques this time of year. Striper Soup has plenty of bait on hand right now. We still have plenty of days open for November. Give us a call at 770 827 6282 and book your trip today.

LAKE JACKSON IS DOWN .80 FEET, HIGH 60’S

Bass fishing is fair. Fish are on docks and sea walls looking for food. Early morning feeding periods may show some top water action. Keep top water bait ready in the event that they feed. Bang A Lures, Pop R’s and floating Rapala’s are very good choices and use clear 8 pound Sufix line. Spinning reels are easy to us with these baits. The 4 inch Senko in bright colors on a Texas rig or with no weight is catching some very large spots mid lake around docks. Pick the docks half way in the backs of major creek, skips the baits under the dock and be sure to have fresh line. Another bait that will fool the bigger spots is a ½ ounce Stanley jig and a twin tail trailer especially after dark. Down lake on rocks, the Fat Albert dark grubs on a 1/16 or 1/8 lead head and a single or twin tail grub can work on main lake structure. Points and long banks right in the mouth of the lower lake creek can produce some good action. Cast the baits right on the bank and reel the back with a straight steady motion. Occasionally drop the bait and the fish will strike.

LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, 60’S

Bass fishing is fair. The fishing has slow a little but if you are on the water early you can have a good day. Look for any top water action and cast a Pop R in the area where the fish are surfacing. Fishing the rip rap at the bridges fishing thing should bring you a few bites. Fish long points where you have deep water nearby. Fishing a Carolina rigged worm in the watermelon seed or watermelon candy colors with a 24 inch leader will be a good bait to use when the water is moving. A big crank bait fished on these points will also bring you a few bites. Another good area to fish are the underwater islands, where the top part of the island is in 10 to 12 foot of water cast your bait to the top part of the island and work your bait to deeper water. If you are able to flip your bait under dock there are some fish be caught by working dock near deep water. The main key is when Georgia Power is moving water. Spend a little time looking at the points and underwater islands with the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology to find baitfish in these area before fishing. This will help narrow down where the fish are.

WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 5.5 FEET, HIGH 60’S

Bass fishing is good. Old road beds, such as the one at McGee Access are great locations to fish with Carolina rigged worms in any color. Cranking main lake and river points with a deep diving crank baits is still productive for early morning fishermen. Check out the mouth of Whitewater Creek and fish deep for those bass that have gone to the bottom for the summer. Spend a little time looking at the points and underwater islands with the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology to find baitfish in these area before fishing. This will help narrow down where the fish are. Up in New River, go past the bridge and use a dark jig and a Hales Craw worm craw worms on the heavy bank cover can get a strike. Stay close to the river current on points. Buzz baits can be good all day in the pockets right off the river. Go past the 219 bridge and hit every pocket no matter how small. Cast right on the edges of the pockets points and work the bait to 13 feet.
