Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!
fishing on Weiss is still good!
The crappie fishing on Weiss Lake continues to be good as we move well
into the last month of the year. We were out on the lake on Monday
fishing with Zane Elliott and Larry Williamson from Kentucky. We had a
great day and caught a nice stringer of 40 keeper crappie. All of these
fish were caught spider rigging the river channel ledges with minnows.
The water temperatures had warmed up some last week and this also
produced some nice stringers of crappie long line trolling. We had a
limit catch using Southern Pro Hot Grubs but the trolling bite seems to
have slowed down some as the water temps have fell back into the 40's.
The crappie fishing should continue to be good as we move toward the
Christmas holidays so get on the water and enjoy catching these winter
crappie. Also just a reminder for everyone, Alabama Power has been
steadily dropping the lake level for the winter draw down so
use caution on the lake due to low water levels!
It should be about 6 feet low before the end of the month. Use
caution due to the low water levels this fall while your out chasing
those crappie. The fall/winter season is going strong so if your
interested in a trip give me a call we still have a few dates open. 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!
