The crappie fishing on Weiss is great!!!

Due to a cancellation we now have one opening this weekend...Call today to reserve your date!!!

CRAPPIE:  The crappie fishing on Weiss is great! We have been out about everyday this past week and we have had some huge stringers of crappie. We have had groups that had anywhere from 40+ keepers to a group of five guys that had 137 one day. The fish have been coming from ledges and docks. The lake is down more than usual right now and this has made the dock shooting a little more difficult but there are still some docks with enough water under them to catch crappie. The fall crappie season on Weiss Lake will continue into December. The fishing will get better as the water temperatures start falling. During the fall season, you can catch good numbers of crappie using two different methods. You can fish live bait over the stumps and brush along the river and creek channel ledges or you can shoot docks. The month of October is a super month for dock shooting! So you can pick the method that you like best and get out on the water and enjoy the cooler weather and catch a lot of fish. Also remember Alabama Power has started the winter draw down and with the lack of rainfall in the area the lake so the lake level is several feet below normal. If your wanting to put some fish in the freezer or just wanting to learn one of these techniques, the fall season is the perfect time. Just a reminder, use caution when your out on the lake due to the low water levels. The lake is almost six feet low and this is already creating some problems for anglers who are not familiar with the lake. We had 5-6 different fishermen that got their boat stuck this past weekend and had to have rescue units pull them out to deeper water. We are booking up really fast but we still have dates open so if you want to set up a trip for the fall season on Weiss Lake give me a call so we can get your dates reserved!  Remember there is a 10 inch size limit on crappie on Weiss Lake and the daily creel limit is 30 per person, per day! See Ya' on the Water!
