Lake Weiss Fishing Reports – September 2020

GON Staff | August 27, 2020

Weiss: Level: Full pool. Temp: Upper 80s. Clarity: Lightly stained.

Bass: Guide and tournament pro Mike Carter reports, “Weiss has been very tough with the hot muggy weather we’ve had, especially during the daytime. The night fishing however has been very productive with some solid action with quality spotted bass. Slow-rolling big Choo Choo spinnerbaits paired with Bobs Frogs by Fishbites bait company along river ledges and deep points have been the ticket for some consistent action. During the hotter daytime hours, look for bass on the deeper river ledges and use heavy shaky-head worms and Carolina-rigged creature baits. When this action slows, go to the trusty dock flipping pattern with soft plastics to turn a slow day into a productive one.” Guide Mark Collins reports, “Bass fishing is fair, and most are on offshore structure along the river and creek channel ledges. Spinnerbaits, Carolina rigs and medium-running crankbaits are working best. The spotted bass are doing well on deeper structure and the creek channel ledges, with Carolina rigs and crankbaits working well.”

Crappie: Guide Mark Collins reports, “Crappie fishing is fair. They are on deeper cover in the main lake and bays, and spider rigging over brush with live minnows and jigs is catching fish.”

Stripe: “Striper fishing is good,” said Mark Collins. “Fish are being caught in the upper Chattooga River, the Cave Hole and Little Spring Creek on live shad that is downlined about 8 feet deep. Freelines are producing some bites, as well.”
