Weiss Lake Crappie Guides Fishing Report


September 3, 2014

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

CRAPPIE:   The crappie fishing on Weiss Lake has been decent over the past couple of weeks. We have been out on the water fishing some new areas as we are getting ready for the fall crappie season to get underway.  We actually shot docks last week and caught some really nice fish. most of these were still on the deeper docks near the creek and river channels and had at least 10 feet of water along the front. The fish seemed to be suspended just up off the bottom and most were really aggressive. All of our fish were caught using a blue and pearl Lit'l Fishie from the the Creme Lure Company. I was fishing this on a 1/24 ounce head. The dock shooting will continue to be very productive as we get into the fall season as the water temperatures start to cool. The more the water cools the more active and aggressive the crappie will become. They will move up under some of the shallow docks and really start feeding up for the winter. Also during the fall if you do not like to shoot the docks you can move out in the deeper water and catch them on live bait along the river channel ledges. The fall crappie season will really kick off late this month and continue into December. 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!
