Weiss Lake Crappie Guides Fishing Report


June 18, 2015

CRAPPIE:  The hot "Dog Days of Summer" are on us and the crappie are biting! We have been out on the water fishing early in the mornings and late in the afternoon and catching some nice stringers of crappie. We hit the water early this morning and fished a half -day (4 hour) trip with Dan Clatter from Trenton, Ohio. We had a great day and caught a nice stringer of 40 Weiss Lake slabs. We have been catching fish on the live bait around deep brush piles and also shooting jigs under the deep docks near the creek and river channels. The crappie are biting good early but it really slows down around mid morning as the sun gets high. They usually start back up late in the afternoon as the sun starts going down and the temperatures to start to cool down before dark. Also had some good reports of crappie being caught under the lights under the bridges and around the deeper docks along the river channel.  We are doing half day trips through out the summer months due to the heat so if you are interested in some deep water summer time fishing give me a call and we will get you a date reserved. Also, we are starting to book up for the fall crappie season that will start around the end of September and continue into December. Don't miss out on the fall season, call today to reserve your dates! We will be on the water a lot over the next few weeks and I hope to have another good report in a few days. 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!
