2013 Fishing Season Kicked Off

February 24th, 2013 Written By: Posted In: Tournament News

Well it has been quite some time since I have wrote a blog. My life has been nuts since last year! Everything from living in Oklahoma for a time, to getting married, then back to Alabama and now here we are at a great fishing season ahead of us! I will be fishing the BASS Weekend Series this year as a boater and our 1st tournament is March 9th. Our schedule is pretty wide open
Neely Henry-May
Weiss- June
Guntersville 2day- September

I have to give a major shout-out to all the folks who are my current sponsors! Go2bait Company, Tackle doctor spinnerbaits, topwater clothing, lews reels, and Greg’s custom rods. Without these people I couldn’t afford to fish lol They all make great products that I am proud to introduce to guide customers and fellow tournament anglers both! I appreciate you all following me this year. Make sure to join my fan page and get in on the action!

End of March/Early April

April 11th, 2012 Written By: Posted In: Fishing Reports

Hey Everyone!
Fishing on Neely has been exceptionally fun the last few weeks! Of course just like any other time, some days are better than others but the good days have been much more numerous here lately! I would really like for some of you to get on the water with me!
The patterns have been fairly simple, find grass that is in the water and find largemouth, not much harder than that. Now the lures I have been using well….different than what other people use I will say that and you need to come fish with me to see it in action lol. The spotted bass are moving out towards the river and can be found on points throwing crankbaits. I have caught several here lately in 8-12ft of water on a Strike King squarebill. They are up and feeding on bait fish and will slam that crankbait! Here are a few pictures of fish we have caught here lately, call me to book a trip!

End of December Fishing Report

December 31st, 2011 Written By: Posted In: Fishing Reports

Got out on the water today for a new year’s eve fishing trip with my uncle from Louisiana. The day overall was pretty tough the water temps averaged around 46-49 degrees everywhere we went.  We fished shallow, deep, main lake, upriver and down river lol but FINALLY a  pattern showed itself in the last hour and we managed a couple. the pattern we found was in the back of creeks with jerkbaits and when I say “back” I am talking about WAY back! Fish were sitting in the bottom of the creek channels around stumps and other cover. I am looking forward to an awesome 2012 and I hope you all have a great year as well! Let’s go fishing! I have a rod ready for you!

End of November Fishing Report

November 27th, 2011 Written By: Posted In: Fishing Reports

Well, what can I say other than Neely Henry has hit her stride going into the cold winter months. Finally, we have a solid late Fall, early Winter pattern that has come into play and I expect it to be going full steam till we get into that “nasty cold” weather as I like to call it. Fish are feeding up before the cold and every fish I am catching looks like its about to bust! Right now I am throwing a lot of “reaction”  type baits. My main bait over the last week has been a Castaway Crankbait. These baits have a unique action and “wobble” to them that I haven’t seen in a crankbait and I have definitely found a new go to crankbait. When the bite get’s tough, you can pick one of these baits up and the bite isn’t so tough anymore if you know what I mean!

Most fish right now are being caught in water temps around 58 degrees and I am really targeting that 5-7ft range banks. The water level on Neely is really low right now and I believe fish have really had to focus on this type of bank because the water is gone on places they use to hang out. I am throwing the Castaway squarebills on 10lb FluroCarbon with a Lew’s cranking reel and a Greg’s Custom Rod cranking stick. This light line really seems to be the ticket and the Lew’s reel with its super low  gear ration keeps you from getting it by them to fast. Fish are still adjusting to the colder temps so things such as rattle traps just seem to be a little too fast right now. When you go out on the water really try to focus on getting the crankbait down to the bottom and just let it “slow roll” off the bottom structure. Still 50% of the time, the strikes are coming right at the boat, which tells me the fish are still a little sluggish but you can be assured as the weather starts to stabilize that will change. These Coosa River spots are like smallmouth, the colder the water, the more feisty they get!

I will be finishing up my college and graduating in a couple weeks, so coming into the new year I am going to be running some specials and discounts on guide trips until I find a “Full-Time” job in the fishing industry. So if you have never been to Neely Henry, or want to get out on the lake and learn some new tips and techniques give me a call! Whatever you want to do, topwater fishing, crankbait fishing, drop-shot, no matter the technique I will find a place for you to do it and hopefully be successful!

2011 – Halfway Through the Season

October 6th, 2011 Written By: Posted In: Tournament News

Hey everyone,

Just a quick update on what’s going on right now. I have had a great year! Fishing on Neely has been outstanding no matter what people say! I have heard rumor of “Neely going downhill” Well, the 7+lbr I caught a couple weeks ago sure did not get the notice lol!! I caught it with Alabama Outdoor News magazine crew, that’s amazing to catch such a healthy fish in mid August! Absolutely beautiful fish! So…NO NEELY IS ALIVE AND WELL!!! I am sitting in 19th place on the BASS Weekend Series trail and have the division Championship coming up. FROG WILL BE ON!! Thats a great time of year and I am looing forward to it! If I stay in the top 40, which I have done the “points math” and even if I zero both days I still would probably wake it, then I will be heading to the Regional Championship in Mobile. This will be my 1st one to attend since I have never fished the Weekend Series trail completely though the year. So it will be a fun time! I have got to say the support from sponsors, friends, and family this year has been amazing!! Everyone on my team rocks for sure!
