Lake Weiss Fishing Report August 2011

GON Staff | July 28, 2011

Weiss: Level: 1.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 84-87 degrees. Clarity: Clear to stained.

Bass: Good. Warren Barnes reports, “The early topwater bite is still working on flats around the entire lake early in the mornings using all types of topwater baits such as the Jackall Bonnie and buzzbaits. During the day, both largemouths and spotted bass are being caught using Texas-rigged worms and football jigs on the ledges. Bass are keying heavily on schools of shad. A Jackall Muscle Deep 15 crankbait is also a good bait to catch these fish, and I have really been having to use my Humminbird side imaging to stay on them. Flipping and skipping under docks during the midday is still a good pattern as well. Try using shaky-head rigs and small finesse jigs to entice these finicky bass. The night bite on Weiss is very good right now as well. Try using black spinnerbaits, jigs and shaky-head worms around rip-rap and hard bottoms, and be prepared for some very hard strikes as the these bass are feeding very aggressively at night. As we get into September, I look for the boat-dock and ledge bites to still be working.”
