Lake Weiss Fishing Report – December 2008
Weiss: Level: 3.7 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 50s. Clarity: Mostly clear.
Bass: Fair. “The largemouths are in the creeks and pockets following the schools of shad,” said guide Warren Barnes. “I’m using War Eagle spinnerbaits and varying the bait color depending on the water color. After the sun gets high, a crankbait like a Jackall MC/60 worked real slow will keep them coming in the boat. Try to bump stumps and debris to get the bite. I have been catching spotted bass on these crankbaits as well. The spotted bass have been holding near the main-lake creek channels on rip-rap and gravel banks. A variety of other baits will catch these fish also. On windy days a rattling bait such as Jackall TN-70 will catch these fish, and on calm days try small jigs or finesse methods such as a shaky head. As we get into December, most of these same baits will work for both largemouth and spotted bass. As the water temp falls, the bass will slowly migrate to the main-river areas. Cover lots of water with these baits, and you could load the boat. If you would like to know where you can find Jackall baits, contact Christie at Natures Tackle box at (678) 567-1211.”
