Lake Weiss Fishing Report – March 2010

GON Staff | February 23, 2010

Weiss: Level: 3.5 feet below full pool. Temp: 43-45 degrees. Clarity: Very stained.

Bass: Fair. Guide Mark Collins reports, “A few largemouths are starting to be caught on secondary points on Rat-L-Traps and shallow-running crankbaits. The spotted bass are still active. The upper part of Little River and the Chattooga River are loaded with spotted bass, and they will stay there through the winter. Any cover on deeper, rocky banks is sure to be holding some spots. They can be caught on a Texas-rigged 4-inch Zoom Dead Ringer worm or a 5-inch Senko in pumpkinseed, watermelon seed or junebug colors. A drop-shot rig is also catching a lot of spotted bass.”

Crappie: Fair. Mark said, “Some good stringers of fish are starting to be caught trolling. Little Spring Creek is producing some good trolling action on 1/24-oz. Jiffy Jigs in colors JJ11, JJ12, JJ13, JJ15, JJ17 and JJ24. Church House cove is also producing some crappie trolling these same jig colors on a 1/16-oz. jig. The Riverside area is also producing some fish trolling.”

Fair. “They have started their migration up the Chattooga River and the Coosa River,” Mark said. “Cut shad on the bottom on a Carolina rig is a great way to catch prespawn fish.”
