Lake Weiss Fishing Report November 2013

GON Staff | October 30, 2013

Weiss: Level: 2.5 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 60s. Clarity: Slight stain.

Bass: Good. Guide Mark Collins reports, “A lot of bass have moved shallow to deeper seawalls and rocky banks. Some fish are starting to be caught in shallow stump flats also. Rat-L-Traps, spinnerbaits and shallow-running crankbaits are producing good. Some fish are still being caught on the creek and river-channel ledges 8 to 12 feet deep on crankbaits, spinnerbaits, jig ’n pigs and Carolina-rigged plastics. Submerged roadbeds and deeper main-lake points are also producing some good bass.”

Crappie: “Crappie are on the old Coosa River channel ledge from Cedar Bluff to Leesburg in 12 to 18 feet of water anywhere there is stumps and brush,” Mark said. “Spider-rigging with live minnows is the way to catch these fall crappie. Night fishing with lights over structure with live minnows and vertical jigging is really good, also. Shooting docks is producing very few crappie this fall.”

Striper: “A few are being at the Cave Hole in Little River and Little Spring Creek and the Chattooga River. Live shad downlined 8 to 10 feet deep and shad on a flatline behind the boat are the best ways to catch these fish,” Mark said.

Catfish: Good. “Catfish are biting in the flats 8 to 20 feet deep on cut shad,” Mark said.
