Lake Weiss Fishing Report – July 2019
Weiss: Level: 0.1 feet low. Temp: Low 80s. Clarity: Moderate stain.
Bass: Guide and tournament angler Mike Carter reports, “The fish on Weiss have moved to their deeper haunts along the creek and river channels to escape the hot temperatures in the shallow areas. This time of year, start out in the mornings along seawalls and rocky banks. This is a great way to get some consistent action early. The best lures for these areas are 1/4-oz. buzzbaits and Zara Spooks. Once the sun gets up, moving out to the deeper ledges with 1/2- to 3/4-oz. shaky heads with 8- to 10-inch worms and Choo Choo football-head jigs can produce some great action. Finding the ledges with a lot of structure will be the main ticket to look for. If fishing during the hot summer days just isn’t your thing, then wait until after dark to slow-roll some big Choo Choo spinnerbaits for some exciting action with some big Weiss spotted bass. These fish get extremely aggressive at night and can make you completely forget about getting back out in the hot sun. The areas to look for at night are deep points with rocks or stumps, or a combination of both. Covering a lot of these areas are important at night to find the right school of bass for some aggressive action.”
