Lake Guntersville Weekly Fishing Report from Captain Mike Gerry

Happy Captain Mike Gerry Client

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 8/1/20


As the heat turns on and up it generally becomes very tough to get bites this time of year; so
far, this has not been the case. Sure, there some days where they might not be pulling water,
or the elements made that day tough but for the most part fishing has been good and well
worth your time on Guntersville. Overall fishing is good, and the good times are rolling!


The bass are responding mostly to different versions of soft plastics, one day they want a big
worm, another a small finesse worm like Missile bait 48 stick bait or even a heavy weighted
punching type bait like Missile Bait D-Bombs. The wind as also offered the ability to use some
faster moving baits like Picasso Spinner baits, and Tight-Line swim jigs.

We have fished mainly
in the 8 to 15 ft. range looking for structure.
Come fish with us I have guides and days available all summer long 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 Lowrance Electronics, Ranger Boats, Mercury motors, Boat Logix
mounts, Duckett Fishing, Vicious Fishing, Navionics mapping, T&H Marine and more.

Captain Mack’ Lake Lanier Fishing Report

From Captain Mack Farr

Nice fish, shy fisherman

July has been hot, especially in the afternoon. Fishing has been hot too, especially in the
afternoon! Of course when the rods are bending it’s a whole lot easier to tolerate the heat and
humidity!

If you need to cool off, you can always take a dip in the lake, which fell slightly this
past week, .21 feet over full pool to 1071.21. The surface temp is at 88 degrees. Based on the
extended forecast we have plenty of heat and humidity in store as the ‘Dog Days” of summer
are here!

Looking at the extended forecast indicates we will have a greater chance of afternoon
thunderstorms as we enter into next week.
Striper fishing has been good, and you’ll have several choices of productive patterns to choose
from.

The fish are using the typical July deep water patterns, although we still have some fish
pushing back into the pockets over a 40 to 50 foot bottom. The overall trend is Stripers moving
towards deeper water, creek channels, over the river channel. Fyi, you may find fish at any point
out over the river or major creek channels, but that pattern seems to be best from mid day on.


You may also see fish anywhere from 30 down to 80, so place the baits where the greatest
activity is. Monitor the live baits closely, keeping the bait alive on the hook is difficult in some
areas of the lake, check and change frequently if needed. Supplement the down lines with some
power reeling, Spoons, Chipmunks and Herring are all good choices and power reeling is a
good compliment to the live bait spread. FYI, Power reeling tip number 4 will post on Sunday
afternoon!

Live bait fishing has been producing well, down lines are the dominant producer, with
a few fish still being taken on weighted flat lines.
The trolling bite has also been very good, with fish responding to Minis and Jigs on the Lead
core, full size umbrellas, and spoons. Pull the Minis on lead core, about 275 feet back on the
counter, 30 foot leader included, about eight colors if you are counting off of the line. You can
use the same depth parameters on either a 2 oz Chipmunk jig or the big spoons, there will not
be much variation in depth between those three baits.

Which one is the best option? That
answer varies from day to day, but the 2oz Chipmunk tipped with a Herring or 6” trailer has been
very consistent. As far as spoons go, the Parker spoons are a good choice as are the Hawg
Series Fat Spoons.

Any of the aforementioned baits can be trolled on lead core or with a
downrigger, so keep that in mind when you deploy the spread. If you opt for the full size
umbrella, and they have also been very effective, pull the rig from 120 to150 feet behind the
boat. You can also use the rigs on the lead core or behind a downrigger as well. You may want
to go with a lighter umbrella on the down riggers, just because it is hard to hold the bigger rigs in
the release clips.

The Capt Macks 3 arm rigs create much less drag so they are a good option,
as are the Mini Mack’s. To help determine the depth of the big umbrellas when using with the down riggers, use the amount of line from the downriver ball to the rig and find the depth value
for that amount of line deployed on the chart. Add that number to the depth of the downrigger
ball and you should be spot on!


The Bass Fishing is also typical for July, main lake brush in 20 to 35 feet is holding plenty of
fish. If you want the numbers, the drop shot will be awfully hard to beat, it may catch the bigger
fish, but it will run up the numbers! Don’t forget about casting the drop shot as well. especially
on the windless days when the water really slicks off. This can be a very good technique when
fishing the brush.

Shakey heads and your favorite finesse worms will also be effective in the
brush. You can still entice a few of the bigger fish out of the brush to take a walking bait, and a
sub surface bait like a Steelshad, Spybait or weighted Fluke over the brush are also good
selections.

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

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.

This Lake Lanier Striper report is from Big Fish On guide Service. To book your guide trip call Captain Ken at 404 561 2564 or contact us on our web site. www.bigfishonguide.com

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.

LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.3 FEET, CLEAR, and HIGH 60’S

Bass is fair. There was a top water bite first thing in the morning, and after that, he was forced to fish docks with shaky heads, Texas rigs and jigs. Fishing is going to improve as the water temps comes down. Look for a good seawall and grass bite to begin. Early, fish poppers and buzz baits. After that, crankbaits and Carolina rigs will work. 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. Top water baits such as buzz baits, Whopper Plopper, Zara Spooks and Spro Poppin Frogs are effective for shallow fish, especially around shallow brush, grass beds and weeds. Have a jig handy to pitch into wood cover in these same areas. Sit is hard to beat a Zoom worm on a Shakey Head or just dragging a Carolina rigged Zoom finesse worm or mini lizard around sloping gravel banks. Also, try a small Texas rigged worm or a jig ’n pig around blowdowns. Try fishing around the bridges and bridge pilings with small crankbaits and jigs especially during periods of water generation.
