Striped Bass Guide On Smith Lake, Alabama- Hitting Stripers Hard

Smith Lake - Freshwater Fishing Report

Smith Lake
February 14th, 2012

Today was one of the best morning fishing for stripers in a while. With cloud coverage all morning, the bite stayed steady. Even though it was cool this morning the stripes didn't seem to mind. We started out with umbrella rigs and a couple different lures on the downrigger. It didn't seem to matter what lure we used, as long as you put it in front of them. We caught fish in depths ranging from 15-40 feet deep. Their arms where a little tired by 9am, so we took a minute and ate a snack. Reeling in 150 feet of line over and over, with a fish on can give you a pretty good work out. No huge fish, but we had two (20lb+) and several fish between (12-16lbs) and lots of (5-10lb) fish. Other than dropping my iPhone in the lake today, the fishing was great. I had such a good day, it made it easier to deal with the lose of the phone.
The 10 day forecast looks pretty good. With average temperatures between 50 and 60, fishing should continue to be good. There's only one thing you need this time of year, rain gear! Some of the best days I've had on the water are on day with rain. This next month will be full of hit and miss shower, so done get locked in on the looking for perfect weather this time of year.
If your interested in booking a trip on Smith Lake, give me a call or email. On Friday, anybody that runs into me on the water will receive a free lure. Hope to see you on the water.
