Weiss Lake Crappie Guides Fishing Report


May 17, 2016

CRAPPIE:  Crappie fishing is still good. We are now late in the season and the crappie have spawned but we are still catching some good stringers of fish. We were out on the lake fishing this week with a couple of guys from South Alabama. We had a great day and finished with a big stringer of 57 keepers. The crappie can be caught around the docks as well as along the creek channels in 10-12 feet of water. We have been using the Southern Pro Stinger Shad around the docks and live bait in the brush along the creek channels. The blue gill have also moved up in the shallow areas and are in the middle of the spawn. We have had several trips out and finished with several stringers of 100 to 150 keepers. The blue gill are being caught on small jigs, worms and crickets. The fishing should continue to be good over the next couple of weeks but will be continue to slow down as we get toward the end of the month and the temperatures continue to rise. If you are interested in a late season trip give me a call we still have a few dates open. 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!
