Weiss Lake Crappie Guides Fishing Report


September 28, 2014

Now booking trips for the 2014 Fall crappie season...Call today to get your dates reserved!!!

CRAPPIE:  The fall crappie season is underway on Weiss and is fantastic right now! We were out on the water on Saturday fishing with Shane, G.W., David and Neda from Douglasville, Georgia. We had a super day and caught a four person limit of 120 keepers. We were back out today (Sunday) fishing with Jerry Cates from Edwardsville, Illinois and John Newman from Herculaneum, Missouri and finished with another limit catch! We caught these fish on the ledges as well as under the docks. The ledge fish were caught using live bait. We used two different baits under the docks. We were using the blue/pearl Lit'l Fishie from the Creme Lure Company and the black/blue stinger shad from Southern Pro. Both of these were fished on a 1/24 ounce jig head. The fish are still holding on the deeper docks near the river and creek channels. Right now you can use either technique to catch crappie and fill the live well. This will continue throughout the month of October. The ledges will continue to produce stringers of crappie into December. We will be out on the water a lot over the week and I hope to have another great report coming in a few days.  Also just a reminder for everyone, Alabama Power has now started the winter draw down on Weiss Lake and will be dropping the lake level over the next several months. It will drop slowly but should be about 6 feet low by late December. Use caution due to the low water levels this fall while your out chasing those crappie. The fall season is about to start and we are booking up fast but we still have a few dates open. Give me a call today to get your dates reserved! I 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!
