Merry Christmas and Happy New
are now into the final month of 2013 and it has been a great year on
Weiss Lake. We have had a lot of great trips and while a lot of anglers
are putting their rods away and getting ready for the Christmas holidays
they are missing out on some fantastic crappie fishing. We have had some
really nice weather this week and the crappie have been really active.
We fished the last two days with Coach Kerry Phillips and Lawrence Moore
from Griffin, Georgia. We had two great days and finished out both days
with limit stringers! The crappie right now are out on the river and
creek ledges and are being caught on minnows. Just use your electronics
to locate the brush and stumps and you will find the fish.
We have a cold front moving
through tonight (Friday) that will bring in some rain and colder
temperatures and this will slow the crappie down over the weekend and
the first part of next week. Next week the fishing should be good after
Wednesday and continue through next weekend.
If you are going to get out on the
lake this month use caution due to the low water levels. Alabama Power
has been generating a lot and getting the lake level down quickly. It
will be down six feet by Christmas Day so if you are on the water be
sure to stay in the river or creek channels. We will be back out on the
water next week and hopefully have another good report. Also we
are starting to book up for the Spring 2014 crappie season so if you are
interested in a trip give me a call today so we can get your trip set up
and your dates reserved!! I hope each one of you have a Merry Christmas
and Happy New Year and I look forward to fishing with you in 2014! 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!
