Fishing Report:
I got off work on Wednesday and decided it was to pretty of a day to sit at the house. I decided to go bank fishing and take my dog (Rio). He is my duck dog/best friend and we do share alot of activities. I figured he loves going out to the river and hunting so surely he will love it....I was proven wrong shortly after my great idea.

So we get there and I just let him run around and play (while staying close). I figured I would just throw an old bobber and hook to pass the time. I made my first cast and I see my dog make a beeline for the water (going to get it). I made him stop when he got to the bank and made him heel and sit. Went to make another cast and he started looking at me then whimpering when he heard it hit the water. I ended up having to make him sit on the tailgate while I fished.

The lesson learned is do not take a retriever fishing and expect him not to retrieve.lol

My son had a bowling tournament Saturday and Sunday, and I was in a hurry to get back home so I could go fishing. I finally got out about 2:30, wind blowing from the north about 900 mph, throwing a Zoom worm I caught my PB out of my Feel Free Lure 11.5, which was 18" and maybe 3 lbs.

Fishing Report:
So the first tournament of the year is in the books. It did not go near as well as I had hoped, but I went out there and fished hard.

During the prefish I was having to shake fish after catching 4 or 5 in just a few hours. I thought surely this is a great sign. I was getting most of my fish off a spro frog throwing it in grass. The fish were definitely in prespawn and had moved shallow.

Tournament day: After the captains meeting I went straight to my first spot to fish. I was very optimistic and felt confident that I would be culling fish before lunch. It played out much diffrent. I lost a total of 10 fish to short bite and spitting the hook on the retrieve. Ended up with one fish that made it in the boat for submission. I finished the day 54 out of 90 boats. This is not where I wanted to finish, but had a good time.

I have some very exciting news in my next post to share with everyone. Stay tuned for details as it unfolds.

Got out on Guntersville around 8. Fog was THICK that morning and the temps were in the 50's. Water temps were 49/50. Didn't catch anything for the first 3 hours. Moved to a spot 5 miles away where the water was over 7 degrees warmer. Managed to catch this little guy on a Square Bill crankbait. Only fish caught by me or my friend the entire day. Rough day for sure.

I was proud to see my friend catch his first small mouth today. I must say this was a great first and a gorgeous fish.

It was caught on a small square bill crank bait with a diving depth of about 2ft.

Fishing Report:
A good friend of mine wanted to fish today and has been interested in kayaks. I told him if he does not mind fishing out of a pink kayak we would go this morning. I had been planning practice fishing Wheller lake for a tournament in April. Being a true outdoorsman the color of the kayak was of no concern to him.

We went out this morning in 30 degrees....I realized when I got to the ramp I ran out of the house in flip flops with socks on. Any other (warmer) day it would have been fine, but it was freezing. I was up and we were already there so I had to tuff it out.

The water was medium clarity with some staining for the rain 2 days earlier, but the heavy sediment had settled. Today we caught quality and not quanity. The best for me of the day was a 5 1/2 lb large mouth. While my friend on the other hand caught a 4lb small mouth. Both fish were caught while fishing the middle of the water column. Both fish were suspended in about 7-10ft of water and off of rock points. I am planning a trip back to wheeler for small mouth in specific this week. I hope they are still holding rock points when I get back.

Fishing Report:
River Bassin Coosa River Tournament:

This weekend I fished a moving water tournament in Wetumpka, AL on the renowned and treasured Coosa river water shed. The river runs the entire length of Alabama and is known for its diverse habitat, white water rapids and the notorious Alabama Spotted Bass! The spotted bass is what brought us to this location.

We arrived in Wetumpka on Friday morning to pre fish the tournament and do a dry run down our planned 6 mile float. We arrived at our put in location at 9 am and put in at the Jordan hydro electric dam. We launched in the tail waters after having to stand and soak in the beauty of the area for a few. We then met up with another North Alabama team that was fishing the tournament. We then decided to stick together for safety for our first dry run. This later became clear to us that we made the right choice. The section of the river we ran has class 2 and class 3 rapids and prominent rock structure below and above the surface. We fished our way down about 1.5 miles to our first rapid and it became apparent that the rapids were greater than any we had encountered before. We all made it through the first set with no issues. The 2nd, 3rd.....and 4th we were not so lucky. Two of our 5 angler that day flipped their kayaks in the rapids multiple times. Multiple items were lost to the river, but one was hurt pretty bad. When he flipped the current pushed him under his kayak and pinned him against the rocks....he broke free after 10 -15 secs that seemed like 2 hrs. The ride was not over for him yet, another one of the anglers was already in the rapids coming down and was unable to stop and ran him over with his kayak pushing him back under water and separating him for his kayak. The angler was wrapped in fishing line, rods and gear leashes. He ended up injured and not able to fish the next day and had to leave.

The day of the tournament started like clock work as we had planned. We put in at day break and started fishing. We were also surprised to see that Eric Jackson the owner at Jackson Kayaks was also fishing the tournament with us. About 45 mins into the tournament I hook up with my first fish....I was excited till about 10 sec into the fight I noticed the fish felt odd and was very fast. The fish arrived at my boat and out of the water jumps a 3 ft gar that tail walked across the front of my kayak. I pulled the fish to the other side of my kayak and shook it off so I did not have to put him in the boat with me and risk being bit. The rest of the day was very slow, the current was fast and the fish were hard to locate. The fish were not in the same spots as the day before. I did manage to land a 13.5inch alabama spotted bass to put me on the board a little after lunch. We were about 3.5miles down our 6 mile float with only one fish to show for it.....I was growing concerned, but kept fishing hard despite the set back.

We arrived at one of the largest rapids on our trip. With me having been down them all before my confidence has grown and I was not as worried, but still cautious. I made it about half way down when a swirl of current right before a 2 ft tall roller wave caught me on a rock below the surface. Once I was I hit the rock I knew I was in trouble. It turned my kayak side ways so I started to try and self right with my paddle. I was unsuccessful with my recovery and flipped my kayak. The other anglers retrieved my rods, net, cooler and other gear while I finished getting pushed through the rapids. Once below the rapids, but still in the current I needed to get back in my kayak. The current was way to strong to make it to a bank so I was forced to flip my kayak back over and make a deep water re entry into my kayak. After the angler got my gear (including my paddle) back to me I was wet and ready to fish. During the incident I lost my fish measuring device called a hawg trough....I ended up with a few little bumps from the rocks, but the most damage was to my ego :).

I ended up losing 3 more fish that day. I finished with one fish in my 3 fish limit. I had a wonderful time, met some awesome anglers and learned a lot. I look forward to competing with and hanging out with this group of guys again.

Fishing Report:
"NAKA Tackle The Storm" tournament big fish.

This fish was caught around 11 pm and was like the rest of the fish caught today. They all were hugging vertical structure, pylons, grass walls and vertical stick ups.

Lake Guntersville is world renowned for some of the best top water frog and rat fishing due to its thick vegetation( hydrilla and mil-foil). The lake is known for producing 7 - 10 lb fish in abundance. I was looking foward to frog fishing, but with the temp in the 50s and rain it was a scratch. I did not get a 7-10 pounder, but did have about a 14" lead over 2nd place.

If anyone is ever in the state of Alabama I recommend fishing Lake Guntersville it really is a gem.

Fishing Report:
Today I was up at 4am getting ready and left the hotel by 4:45 AM for the NAKA Tackle The Storm tournament on beautiful Lake Guntersville. Today we were able to start culling fish at 11am. I finished my 3 fish limit at 47 inches. It rained all day and the wind was 5 to 15mph as well. The conditions were far from ideal, but I fished hard and tried to use the disadvantage of weather to my advantage. The fish were hugging piers and grass points. The only way to catch today was to drop it on their nose.

I took first place and had big fish for the tournament with a 17 1/4 inch large mouth. All around a awesome day! Just happened to have a Stackfish shirt on under my rain gear. :)

Went out for a few today. Landed 3 bass two 2 lb fish and this pig! The fish keep getting bigger and my arms are not getting any longer. It is getting hard to take selfies with the fish.... I might need to get a go pro camera for HD pics and videos of my outings. I wish you guys could have seen me catch this one. I was fishing pylons under a bridge. I tried a jig on the columns....with no success. So I switched to a spoon since the area is known for small mouth.....no success. So I switched to a spinner bait that matched the local thread fin bait fish and then.....boom! I had this pig take me into heavy cover. I had to fight him from around a pylon and piled trees. He broke my favorite spinner bait, but he made it to the boat. I did not have a scale but estimate him from 5 to 6lbs. All I have to say is when in doubt.....spinner bait. I use it as my fish finder and just change up the retrevial to see where the fish are.

Fishing Report:
Got on the water for a few in the new kayak I picked up today. Only got to fish for 2hrs, but caught two 3-3.5 lb bass. I was thinking I had a red cross on me for the most of time out. The mosquitoes probably sucked about a pint of blood!

I pulled both of bass out of a fallen tree (lay down). I had tried top water and jigs in structure with no luck. I noticed small shad schooling and some bass starting to actively feed. I swapped rods and started throwing a blue/silver spinner bait. After a few cast slow rolling it in and around cover....I was on the fish, one of the aggressive fish straightened out my terminator spinner bait.

Good afternoon all in all, minus having maybe caught malaria or west Nile from all the mosquitoes.
