Weiss Lake Crappie Guides Fishing Report


October 24, 2014

Have dates open next week due to cancellations...Call today to book your trip!!!

CRAPPIE:  The fall crappie season is underway on Weiss and is fantastic right now! The temperatures have been lower and the fish have been biting. We have been out on the water the last two days fishing with Charlie Clark and Allen Kelly from Oak Ridge, Tennessee. We had a great trip and caught had a two day total of around 100 keepers! We have been catching our fish using two different methods. We have been fishing the channel ledges early and then moving to the docks in the afternoon. On the ledges we are finding the brush and fishing it with minnows. On the docks we have been using the Southern Pro Stinger Shad on a 1/24 ounce head. Both methods have been producing some really nice stringers of crappie. It has been a little tougher on the ledges due to the wind the last few days. 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 underway 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!
