"Gentleman listen carefully. You are leaders of your family, you are leaders of your home, leaders of your sphere of influence, and I am going to tell you, the second you step out of God's will, others will follow you away from God."

Lake Eufaula, Alabama

 The cold, windy and rainy conditions have kept fishermen indoors for the most part. Coved-19 has slowed down the guide business due to travel precautions, but fishing and outdoor activities are still safe during these crazy times. The fish remain lethargic in the cool water.


Bass are holding in deeper, warmer water early. Locate the structure on your electronics; work the areas out with different baits to entice a strike. Deep crank baits can cover an area faster, if that does not get their interest; vertically work a jigging spoon in the fish you see on the electronics, you can keep it in front of them longer. The hammered spoon creates a lash if the water is clear enough but also caused a vibration that attracts their attention. As the sun rises and the shallows warm, watch for the birds to begin to feed, work these areas with blade baits, chatter baits are a good in the dirty water. Soft plastics on a Texas rig or shaky head worked slowly are a good bet. Red shades are good in dirty water. Working a jerk bait or spook with deliberate motions will create action that will draw attention to a lazy bass.


Crappie are still holding on the deeper trash and structure in 12 to 20 feet. Minnows are the answer for a good mess for the table. Jigging with a minnow can attached can get them excited.


Catfish are still feeding on jugs; cut bait is a good choice.


We are now taking entries for the Scott Woodruff Heart Transplant Tournament; go to the Albany Bass Club website to register. The Alabama Classic Bass Tournament is also open for registration now. Thanks to Alfa Insurance, we have a guaranteed first place check for $5000.00 ready for the winning team, a total of $15,000.00 purse for the top fifteen teams. Boat numbers will be assigned upon receipt of paid entry fees. All information is on both web sites.


Be safe on the water, dress warm and enjoy the beautiful outdoors God has provided for us. Pray for one another in these trying times and always remember America was founded for freedom to worship, trusting God is our answer.
