Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 4/16/16

Well if you didn't like 30 mph winds out of the NNW you got to experience them out of the ESE; I am sure it made you feel better or maybe not! The past 3 weeks we have just been hammed by strong winds and spending day fishing was challenging because of it. Sure we caught fish but it was some of the most aggravating times on the water I have spent in quite a while.

The bass are still very much staging waiting for the water to get a little warmer I don't believe we have seen the best of the spawn yet, and because of it bites are still at a premium and missing can really hurt your day. We spent most of the week fishing 3 to 6 feet of water with some spotted moves to the deeper water checking for post spawn fish. If the best of the spawn is over Guntersville is in trouble, I have just got to think we are behind but this week should really make a difference with the weather warming up considerable.

Baits for the week have not changed a whole lot with Tight-Line Swim jigs, leading the way with most of the bites rigged with Missile Bait Shock Wave swim baits; we did add SPRO crank baits to the everyday baits with their Baby Little John DD 60 catching several fish in 7 to 9 ft. of water.

Come fish with me no one will treat you better, I have days and guides available to fish with you!
