Lake Weiss Fishing Report – October 2017

GON Staff | September 28, 2017

Weiss: Level: 1 foot low. Temp: Mid to upper 70s. Clarity: Mostly clear.

Bass: Guide and tournament angler Mike Carter reports, “Weiss Lake is getting geared up and ready for some fantastic fall action, with several productive patterns to make for a great day of fishing. The water level has started to fall and will keep dropping through the next couple of months. Start early along seawalls and rocky points with Echo Crankbaits and Choo Choo Lures spinnerbaits and shakers for the most consistent bite. Fishing these baits as parallel possible to these areas can create some great action especially for some mean Coosa River spotted bass. When the sun gets up, the cooler fall temps still allows for some great action with the Echo crankbait, and covering a lot of shallow rocky and stumpy points has produced consistently. The bass are getting ready to move in shallow for the fall to feed on schools of shad, and this is a great time to get out and enjoy the action on Weiss Lake.”

Crappie: “The fishing is good,” said guide Mark Collins. “Crappie are still biting good on deeper cover and creek and river channel ledges in 10 to 16 feet of water. They can be caught spider-rigging with live minnows 10 to 12 feet deep over structure.”
