Starting to get them dialed in

Guntersville Lake, Alabama - Freshwater Fishing Report

This report is for the last 4 days. I have been running several areas getting ready for the upcoming season. Monday was a grind but when I got bit it was a good one and I only boated 4 fish and all of them came on a crankbait. Tuesday was about the same as Monday but I did have a limit and 4 of them were on a crankbait and one was on a trap. On Wednesday I started to get dialed in on the new areas and boated 10 fish which came on a crankbait and trap also. On Thursday I spent the day running places I had caught fish the previous days and I had my best day all week with boating 17 fish. I caught three on a crankbait, 2 on a jerkbait and 10 on a trap. The best depths have been 7 to 10 feet. The biggest thing is finding that retrieve and when dialed in on that its game on.

I haven't tried to target a-rig fish with all of the tournaments that are banning it. I want to have other options for my clients. I feel pretty certain that I could catch them on it but after this rain moves out I will start playing with it a bit for those who are fun fishing and want to fish it.

The pictures are of a few big ones I had this week. It may be a little hard to tell in the pictures but they were good ones and I had one giant as you can tell by my fist down her throat, lol.

I have days available if anyone wants to get out there.
