Fishing Report for Smith Lake
- Water Temperature: 47-49 degrees
Since Guntersville has been down lately and because I was in a bit of a slump myself, I decided to leave the home lake alone for a day and make the drive to Smith Lake in Cullman, Alabama.
I put my boat in around 7 A.M. at Smith Lake Park located in Ryan Creek. I made my way from the park to where the river opens up, and picked a deep, rocky point and started scanning on my depth finder for fish suspending on the point. Once I found a point that had fish on it, I put my Talons down and anchored the boat in the shallower water, anywhere from 7′-9′, and casting into the water which was around 20′-25′. I was using a Hammer Fishing Rods 7′ medium heavy spinning rod with a sexy shad colored Roboworm rigged on a dropshot. This is what I caught all my fish on because the blue bird sky had the fish acting too finicky to hit any fast moving baits, such as crankbaits and topwater walkers.
With this successful trip to Smith Lake, I’m looking forward to making the stop there in April on the Alabama Bass Trail! Keep up to date on my tournament finishes and fishing reports by checking back regularly.
